HUMOUR: World War II American Beales linen artist cards by Max Halverson featuring various Women's Army Corps subjects with lots of then acceptable sexism & a fair dose of feminism, plus a few anti-Axis, unused. Superb!
No longer available
MILITARY WORLD WAR II: 1945 series of five photographs of the execution of Benito Mussolini & his mistress Clara Petacci & another that appears to be an effigy of Adolf Hitler. Gruesome stuff but they are not first generation prints so are very grainy. [With the original envelope in which they were bought by a US soldier at the Esso gas station in Milan where the bodies were hung from meathooks]
