As constant travellers and collectors we thought we'd start to share some of our most treasured artefacts we pick up on our journeys, Anything which has a personal thread running through it always catches our eye, we are big collectors of war memorabilia and ephemera and often we are the ones who are last at the market or buried in some junk looking and scanning every page of an album or book that we stumble on, this one is from 1941 and charts the war life communication of RAF Airman Cliff Morley, through cards, telegrams and letters home. It's a lovely book and, if truth be told, tells us very little about the horrors of war but rather celebrates the previously unreachable exotic life that travelling with the British Army can bring. Much of the book is very nationalistic and a bit un PC, so out of respect for our Asian friends we will not show this here. The book as a whole really emits that sense of adventure and genuine curiosity in other cultures, I suppose the war generation still had the memory of the east India Co, and the decline of the Empire so travel must have been still an exotic event fuelled by memories of news of the Empire..
