An ID card issued to Queen Mary is to be sold at auction in Lichfield. The National Registration card, numbered ODPH/180/1 and issued on May 22, 1940, is signed “Mary, Her Majesty Queen”.
The three-page document survived because an Army officer assigned to shred cards after the war kept it as a memento.
Hanson’s auctioneers of Lichfield, Staffordshire, expect it to fetch £500.
Don’t be surprised if it makes more!
