Queen Mary WW11 ID Card for auction

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!
