SOLD SOLD SOLD A Rare WW2 1942-43 German 'In Memory of My Military Service' Jersey Occupation Commemorative Pewter Plate To 3. Artillerie Regiment 319. Sn 14334 - 14334
This is a rare WW2 1942-43 German Occupation of Jersey 'In Memory of My Service' Commemorative Pewter plate to 3. Artillery Regiment 319. The German Occupation of Jersey began one week after the British government had demilitarized the island fearing for the safety of civilians should there be any conflict. The codename for this was “Operation Green Arrow” and the initial German Air Force reconnaissance flights mistake civilian farming lorries for troop carriers. By 7 May 1945, the German army had surrendered and the end of the war in Europe was announced. During the week leading up to 6 May islanders had been hearing reports of Hitler’s fall in Berlin by way of their hidden radios. In spite of the fact that the island was still officially under occupation, rumors began circulating of an imminent end to the war in Europe. On the 8th May the Channel Islands were liberated. At 3.00pm Winston Churchill crackled onto the airwaves to give, perhaps, the most famous speech of his career. The Prime Minister’s words announced the end to the war in Europe and the “unconditional surrender of all German land, sea and air forces in Europe”. When, amidst great cheers across the island, he uttered the words, “our dear Channel Islands are also to be freed today”. This rare pewter plate is in perfect condition. It has been commissioned by a member of the German Occupation forces from 3. Artillery Regiment 319 between 1942-1943 in memory of his service on the island. It has the German cross symbol at the top with the Swastika in the centre and "1939". Below this it has "Fur Erinnerung an Meine Diensbeit" which translates to 'Memory of my Military Service'. Below this it has "3. Artillerie Regiment 319" and " Insel Fersey" 'Island Jersey' "1942-43". The plate measures 8 1/2" across and has a decorated border. It stands 3/4" high. The reverse is plain. It is undamaged. This is a very nice and rare item to come up for sale and unique to the 3. Artillerie Regiment 319. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14334

WW1 Princess Mary Christmas Tin 'Bullet' Pencil. Sn 14333 - 14333
The Princess Mary Gift Fund box is an embossed brass box that originally contained a variety of items such as tobacco and chocolate. It was intended as a Christmas present to those serving at Christmas in 1914 and was paid for by a public fund backed by Princess Mary. Princess Mary's original intention had been to pay, out of her private allowance, for a personal gift to each soldier and sailor. This was deemed impracticable and a proposal was made that she lend her name to a public fund, which would raise the necessary monies to provide the gift. It was anticipated that the majority of eligible recipients would receive an embossed brass box, one ounce of pipe tobacco, twenty cigarettes, a pipe, a tinder lighter, Christmas card and photograph but quite early on the committee in charge received strong representations that an alternative gift should be made available for non-smokers. After some discussion the Committee agreed that non-smokers should receive the brass box, a packet of acid tablets, a khaki writing case containing pencil, paper and envelopes together with the Christmas card and photograph of the Princess. This bullet pencil bears the Princess Mary's monogram on the brass case and is stamped with "Sterling Silver on the bullet. The ‘pencil bullet’ was not fashioned out of real bullet parts, it was simply a pencil with a rounded sterling silver end that looked like an unfired round when stored inside a brass tube resembling a cartridge case. The monogram is clear as can be seen in the photographs, the pencil looks to have not been sharpened and is full length. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14333

SOLD SOLD SOLD Boer War 'Gentleman in Khaki' Original Framed and Signed Print By Richard Caton Woodville and Signed By Him. Sn 13636 - 13636
This is a framed (29" x 21") South Africa War 'Gentleman in Khaki' original signed print by Richard Caton Woodville and signed by him. The visible print size inside the frame is 19" x 12". From "The Absent-Minded Beggar" an 1899 poem by Rudyard Kipling, set to music by Sir Arthur Sullivan and often accompanied by an illustration of a wounded but defiant British soldier, "A Gentleman in Kharki" by Richard Caton Woodville. The song was written as part of an appeal by the Daily Mail to raise money for soldiers fighting in the Second Boer War and their families. The fund was the first such charitable effort for a war. The chorus of the song exhorted its audience to "pass the hat for your credit's sake, and pay– pay– pay!" The patriotic poem and song caused a sensation and were constantly performed throughout the war and beyond. Kipling was offered a knighthood shortly after publication of the poem but declined the honour. Vast numbers of copies of the poem and sheet music were published, and large quantities of related merchandise were sold to aid the charity. The "Absent-Minded Beggar Fund" was an unprecedented success and raised a total of more than £250,000. This is the illustration by Richard Caton Woodville that accompanies the poem, 'A Gentleman in Khaki'. The print is in very good clear condition and is framed behind glass ready for hanging. There is a white name tag at the bottom of the frame which has "Absent Minded Beggar" in black writing on it. The print is signed in the bottom left hand corner with 'R. Caton Woodville', see one of the photographs. It illustrates a uniformed soldier who is carrying a Long Lee Enfield Rifle with a Metford bayonet fixed, below this is a smaller illustration of soldier in the prone position aiming a rifle. This is a very famous illustration that is associated with Rudyard Kipling's Poem. Due to the nature of this framed print we may need to remove the glass from the frame before as if it breaks in transit it may damage the print. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13636
