An absolutely unique work of embroidery and authentic item of WWII memorabilia

Vintage Needlepoint / WWII needlepoint / antique needlepoint / historical needlepoint / vintage sampler / antique sampler

It contains the signatures of sailors aboard three World War Two British Royal Navy Minesweepers and trawlers namely HMS Mount Keen in 1939 HMS Mangrove 1940 and HMS Stornoway in 1941

One of the crew got his colleagues to sign their signatures onto the cloth and they were subsequently embroidered. The sailor was posted on all three ships, so tracking him down shouldn't prove too arduous.

Some of the signatures haven't been embroidered, so it was never finished

It measures 34 inches square.

The condition is good and it's lovely and clean

You have to say this is a true piece of WWII British Navy memorabilia and a wonderful collector's item

It would be a super addition to any collection, excellent display or practical piece, or authentic period prop.

Thanks for looking and please cast a glance at my other vintage and historical items:
