The booklet (32 pages) of the famous film "TARGET for TONIGHT", A documentary film about a raid on Freihausen, released in 1941 is in excellent (almost new) condition.
The story is about a bombing raid on Germany, how it was planned and how it was executed. Each part was played by the actual staff who did the job, from Commander-in-chief to ground crew.
The film concentrates on a Wellington bomber "F for Freddie" and was made by the Crown Film Unit.
The booklet was sold at the time for six old pence - 6D.
The film can be seen on youtube.

De Kwatta-reep was enorm populair onder soldaten, het leger was daarom ook de grootste afnemer van de reep. Deze was in alle kazernes te koop. Later werd de reep Kwatta's "Manoeuvre"-reep genoemd, vanwege het soldaatje dat op de wikkel was afgebeeld.
The Kwatta bar was extremely popular among soldiers, which is why the army was also the largest consumer of the bar. This was for sale in all barracks. Later the bar was called Kwatta's "Maneuver" bar because of the soldier on the wrapper.

A very charming pictorial map of London.
The New Pictorial Map of London
Geographia Ltd London 1934
Sheet size 74 x 49 cm, folding into thin card color pictorial wrappers 11 x 18 cm.
The map and cover are in a fine condition. Map is crisp and clean.
The title of this map is shared with other publications by Geographia which lack the artistic and comic character which makes this map desirable.
Of note are the large size and boldly designed border which distinguish it from a smaller (half size) edition of the comic pictorial map. It is a light-hearted map of London, in the vein of MacDonald Gill's Famous Wonderground Map of London Town, with comic figures and humorous quips in speech bubbles.
The map covers the area from The Albert Hall at lower left to the Tower of London and Bank of England at right, from Euston Road at upper edge to the Elephant and Castle.
There is an inset street map at upper left marking Theatres, and another at upper right marking Cinemas.
Initials WJH appear in decorative border at lower right.
