My dad was in North Africa and Italy during WWII and then worked with UNESCO for a year after that before he came home. He had a small box of coins and notes from different countries, and given the date on this one, I'd guess he picked it up traveling around in the UNESCO period. He never mentioned being in the UK, so I'd guess he picked it up from a Brit he crossed paths with.

There's also an older and shabbier silver sixpence that I'm cleaning up to do a macro.
What was he doing in Italy? Was he a prisoner of war? My dad was in North Africa and got taken at Tobruk. Was then a prisoner of war in Italy.

No, not so dramatic. As the Allied front moved from North Africa and up through Italy, he was charged with helping the villages and towns put the pieces back together after the war had rolled through. He didn't talk about it much but did say once the people were so traumatized that all the social structures and social bonds had broken down.

Note: Though the picture shows Grace Slick, the female vocalist in the recording is Signe Anderson, the band's original singer.

Wow, that’s quite a cluster. They look huge, but maybe you were on your belly up close.:rolleyes:
I was crouching but not flopping -- it was wet! They were each around 3 inches wide, give or take.
