CHURCHILL, Sir Winston Spencer (1874-1965).
Printed programme for the El Alamein anniversary celebrations at the Albert Hall on 23 October 194v, signed by both Churchill and Montgomery. Overall size 235 x 200 mm (ca 9 x 8 inches), cover worn along the spine and crudely 'repaired' with adhesive tape, the signatures inside the cover on a blank page with only a few small stains.
