Nazi album given to British soldier goes on sale

A fold-out album of 144 Second World War postcards collected by a German naval officer is to be auctioned tomorrow in Chudleigh, Devon. It includes pictures of Adolf Hitler and of the Graf Spee and other German vessels. The officer gave the album to a British soldier at the end of the war and it has been in his family ever since. There are also wryly humorous postcards. One shows three sailors leaning over the side of a ship above the caption: “Seasick – oh what a joy!” Michael Bowman, the auctioneer, values the collection at £600-£800.
