Description: Operation Manna Souvenir Folder, produced by Lincoln's Lancaster Association. This charming little souvenir folder commemorates the 70th Anniversary of Operation Manna which took place in May / June 1945. Operation Manna was Bomber Command's task to drop food to the population of the Netherlands who were starving under the German occupation. 251 folders, all individually numbered have been produced giving brief details of the event, The folders have been made to hold various inserts: 20 years ago the Netherlands Post office produced a special postage stamp for the Anniversary. Enquiries were made and it was discovered that a special stamp was not going to be issued this year, so The Lancaster Association commissioned them to make a special stamp, A sample of each stamp is enclosed in each folder. Also included are 8 reproduced photographs taken at the time of the food drops. Brief location details are printed on the back of each card. A card is included which has been signed by a Veteran who flew on 3 Manna missions. A card is included which was flown in the Lancaster over the drop sites which has been signed by the pilot Flt Lt Roger Nichols RAF .This was flown just a few days before the aircraft was grounded following an engine fire. Finally a colour photo is enclosed of the Lancaster passing over one of the drop sites. Good condition. All items come with a Certificate of Authenticity and can be shipped worldwide.
