I figured this was the best forum to present my recent findings in and get some sound advice from you guys that have far more knowledge than I do.
I bought some old coins off a guy and he told me about some old WWII letters and a book and I didn't think much of it, however I had him send me a picture of the book so I could do some research. Once I started to dig around I realized it was an incredible piece of history so I picked it up from him along with a lot of other items. Ill list them below to give an idea what all I have.
-Stalag Luft III by Bob Neary with inscriptions and details of where he stayed along with who he stayed with, and photos by H.E. Kious of the actual camp life with personal notes from the owner, 2nd Lt. Jack M. Montgomery POW
-10 post cards and 9 letters from him to his parents in great condition from Stalag Left III
-8letters from his parents to him at the camp
-letter from Harry Truman on Whitehouse letterhead(although I think it was auto signed)
-letter to his parents from Allan Jackson at CBS world news
-Western union reporting Jack as MIA and one reporting POW
-photograph on the B24 he went down on
-various news paper clippings
-folder of his military records with certificates and lots of personal documents.
I am essentially trying to wrap my head around what I have, its hard to do so just searching online.
Ill attach pictures as well.
Thanks in advance.
