WORLD WAR I

OUR NATION’S ROLL OF HONOR


Folks, I selected this particular Roll of Honor because it included the pictures of two nurses killed mending our injured, eight Aviators killed in aviation accident, three soldiers who died in the sinking of the Tuscania and three others who died from explosions. All of the picture and text are identified below.

OUR HONORED DEAD

There were many pictorials published – the common ones are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones like this Honor Roll never make it. They are hard to find. Collectors treasure them. I hunt them out cause really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of the best.

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our ancestors. During my research, I discovered that hundreds of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because World War I Army History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

OUR NATION’S ROLL OF HONOR

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WORLD WAR I MEMORABILIA. What a Rare Item!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was saved from this old American pictorial magazine of many years ago. This page (10-3/4 by 16 inches) is the ORIGINAL 89-YEAR-OLD piece in excellent condition.

WORLD WAR I HONOR ROLL MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story saved from a rarely found and seldom read American pictorial magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada, $4.60 Priority Mail, $10.00 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail – mailed once a week to defray cost of gas going to post office. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
