Unique WW2 GI's Souvenir Capture Paper


Recommended Posts

I have mentioned this capture paper in a couple other threads. It is very unique, hand done, it was actually from a soldier who was killed in action in December 1944. The souvenirs listed on the paper were actually with the KIA group of his named medals and other items. I can only assume that this paper was sent home with his souvenirs, well before he was killed, thus the family having them.

Really interesting. I have lots of capture certificates but this I have never seen. Thanks for sharing. Sad that he was KIA.
