British World War II Scrapbook
Scope and Content
This collection consists of a small (4 x 6 1/2") scrapbook containing World War II-related clippings from various periodicals. Compiled by an unidentified person, perhaps a member of the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force, the scrapbook contains approximately 260 pages. Most of the clippings relate in some way to the air service, many of them containing cartoons (prominent among these are a number of single panel illustrations issued under the collective title "Oddentification," with accompanying poems, probably clipped from The Aeroplane). Also included are a number of clippings relating to individual air force personnel.
