Description

A very nice pouch made from heavy cotton with the front flap embroidered with patriotic flags and dates.

The embroidered detail has been done by machine, rather than hand, showing the ‘industrialised’ nature of this type of souvenir.

Always found these war time items interesting regarding the dates, the war still had a ‘good time to run with much ferocity still to ‘come’.

Such items were bought by British/(Allied) soldiers and sent home to wives and sweethearts….A nice item.
