Remembrance Day

Since it is the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War 1 this year, I thought I’d share some pictures of my mom’s collection of Cigarette Silks from the Great War. Tobacco companies used to put these in their packages as a little premium for the kids.

As the folks are in a process of change and downsizing, I also took some pictures of my dad’s collections of military insignia. He has a particular fondness for the Royal Canadian Air Force, with which her served in the 1960s.
