Among the auction catalogs we recently received as a donation was one with a small sheet attached to the cover.
WE CARRY ON AS USUAL. The despatch of this catalogue has been delayed owing to our Printers being bombed out during the course of printing. Sale dates have however been put back to:
JANUARY 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 1941. So send us your bids as usual.
The date, during World War II, tells us why this auction in Surrey, England was delayed. Philatelists and auctioneers carry on!
