Grandad's Reminiscense treasures

The popular guide to the German Army was handed out to all those in the Home Guard, so they would know what to do if they actually invaded!!!

Dad was in port in Capetown one christmas, their ship's company was invited up to the Balmoral Hotel. Where they slept Christmas Eve when they woke in the morning they found each had a gift! Dad's was a hand knitted white roll neck jumper that lasted him many years. Mum said she wondered where that came from! Dad has kept the Christmas labels that were stitched on to it.
