"Smokes For Buddies"...



Item # 677972

October 01, 1943

BEACON, Philadelphia Navy Yard, Pennsylvania, October 1, 1943 

* "Smoke For Buddies" rally 
* Rare military issue from WWII 

A military paper produced at the Navy Yard with a great wealth of war-related content. An interesting item on the front page headed: "2,100,000 Cigarettes Donated by Yard" to be send to servicemen overseas as part of the "Smokes for Buddies" rally shows how differently we viewed necessities for military life during World War II (see).

Eight pages, great condition.
