    Apparently a bunch of these were found in the Netherlands in an old shop, worn by Dutch traders or just civilians also at the end of WW2 to show they could speak English so I understand[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Nice addition. I missed a chance at a complete card like this a few years ago. Would love to add one to my collection.

    Interesting little pin. Shame the maple leaf seems a bit out of order! Perhaps more will turn up?

    Quick update on this for me, I was lucky enough to obtain a full card like the one shown. My first and only addition to my collection so far in 2024. Once my room is finally complete, it will make a nice display, I hope.
