    in WWII some of our troops were stationed in libya, egypt and along the african coast -- my dad was one such person and many of these types of souvenirs were sent home to family and loved ones -- souvenirs made by the locals and purchased as trinkets for remembrances

    I love WW2 souvenir embroidery! They were very popular souvenir items with the troops.

    Your example appears to be a table runner.

    Here is an example from my collection:
