Midland Bank Cheque (Thousand Pounds of Health and Happiness), ASC Sweetheart badge.

Received directly from the family these are the medals and effects of T/106587 Driver George William Spencer, Royal Army Service Corps.

His son, the vendor, has applied for the service papers as next of kin and we hope that he is successful in this application. These will be forwarded to the eventual buyer of this fresh-to-market lot.

The documents are in understandably poor condition. The Pay Book records his address as Wandsworth, London, with the later address in Marlow, Buckinghamshire where they moved to escape the bombings.   

He was born London, 8th July 1919 and was released from service 15th February 1946 having been called up for service 9th October 1939.
