    Default Allied Forces HQ pass

    Hi Guys, passes to get into senior military HQ's were items which were carefully issued and guarded.

    "AF" HQ was in North Africa and was a joint US/British affair set up in Feb 1943. It continued as the HQ for all Operation in the Med until disbanded in August 1945.

    This pass was issed to a British soldier. Note the way Private, "Pte" is written instead of "Pvt" in US terminology

    Note also the instruction on the reverse about what should happen to the pass if lost or found. It was printed in May 1943.

    No doubt this pass was kept against orders as a souvenir and at one time was kept in a photo album until it was sold and broken up in a house clearance sale. I bought it for 50p.

    Cheers, Ade.
