Christmas Programme, British Detachment HQ, Allied Commission, O.Rs. 1945 Rome

£6.00

A fascinating item of ephemera from 1945, a Christmas programme for the ORs (Other Ranks) who were still in Europe, here in Rome serving with the British Detachment HQ of the Allied Commission. The programme for Christmas Day looked good, with a football match in the morning, a full Christmas dinner, listening to the King's Speech, and a dance in the evening. Church services were arranged and there were other attractions (dances, a grand concert) for Boxing Day and New Year's Eve.

What is nice is on the back cover is space for 'Names and Addresses of Your Friends', acknowledging that the Allies would not be in Rome forever.

This is a neat and complete booklet with no damage, just a tiny bit of sellotape to replace small tears.
