Mark,

These images have been posted before in a previous thread. I couldn't find it in a quick search, so I'm posting the images again.

Pad and ruled guide sheet, envelopes and pencil with nickel plated cover in the small storage loop provided.

Regards

Tocemma

Were these sold to raise money for the fund rather than being issued to the troops?

Agree; although I am unable to remember exactly where I read it

I am sure they were issued as part of the 'Non Smokers' Gift-Khaki Writing Set, Tin, Pencil, Christmas Card and acid drops-from memory. regards Mark

within the writing kit was also a photograph of Princess Mary and a letter from Buckingham Palace that reads "Gift from Mary R and the Women of the Empire 1914". The pencil, paper and envelopes were not monogramed.
