    That was a fortuitous walk for you Darren. Wonderful find! I didn't realize they had that bright of colored ink on newsprint pre-1950. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Darren, I am 99% sure these are all British reprints from the 1970's. They were called "The War Papers". Each one came with a reprinted poster too. I have most of the set which I bought at the time. There are no reprint dates or anything on them to tell them apart from originals. Now yellowed with age they look totally real.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Darren, no, that marking is conventional.

    Hi Darren, Nice papers, but I do think Ade is correct. Here's a couple of pictures of some of the wartime papers I was given a few weeks ago by an old lady, these are definately original!

    In this world, things are complicated and are decided by many factors. We should look at problems from different aspects, not just from one.
