  1. This post is in effect an informal accession record that tells you the who, what, and where of the box’s origins. Would you care to arrange and describe this collection, as I recently discussed at

    • hello Sue,

      Thank you for the comment. The box isn’t mine to keep long-term, so I shall be photographing and scanning everything. I may have a go at using the archiving example that you’ve written about in your blog post, to archive the photos and scans.

      Along with the box, I also have temporary custody of a Will and related solicitor letters too – again, all of these are going to get scanned, so hopefully your advice will help me to bring some kind of order to that, and one that will benefit my data in my Reunion software.


  2. The handwriting and envelopes look eerily like those I have come across in my own grandmothers house from that period. My grandparents were married in 1946 though while my grandfather was on leave from the navy.
