A fortnightly issue of the magazine priced 6d. Very descriptive and down to earth, more so than some of the other publications of the time, printed on a lighter quality paper - A cheaper option to some of the more popular illustrated magazines of the day, such as Illustrated London News etc. World War II, or the Second World War was often abbreviated as WWII or WW2.

Twelve pages (24 sides). It measures 285 x 220 mm (11.25 x 8.5 inches) approx.The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. This magazine is an original and used issue. Not printed on the best of quality paper, but it more than makes up for this in terms of written content with many images. There is age yellowing and spotting/foxing and some marking. The staples are rusty (I have removed them to prevent further damage) leaving witness marks. There are some creases etc to corners. There are a few tears and handling marks to the edges. The photos, sketches etc. vary in size.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete as published - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell there are no pages missing, but if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK.

The detailed description above signifies the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.

This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope.
