Good Afternoon Everyone......

I was going through an old book on the BW that I had not looked in for a very very long time and I found an item that I had put away for safety and then completely forgotten about......

It is the front cover for the invitation or possibly menu from Lloyds of London to the Officers and Crew of H.M.S. Powerful for a banquet on their return from South Africa, dated May 7th, 1900.....

I just with I had the whole invitation / menu.....

Now for your viewing pleasure.....

Paul,

What a superb display, that's a great collection of pocket watches you have there.
