    I got A few old letters I found in a folder at the dump, someone must have collecte them over some time as there is some really interesting pieces here.
    I can't read most them as some are old English writing that looks Beautiful, I have trouble with today's English. Some are typed and some are Royal.
    When I can get the time I will post them individually so you can have a close look at them.

    They is two really old letters in old English with wax seals and a lot of signatures.

    One of the letters is on blue paper with the heading, Cumberland Windsor
    From HRH Princess Helena With the date from 1910, four pages
    but that's all I can get from it.

    One of them is a licence of the reverend

    There is a ticket to the queens coronation on 1953 at Parliament Square.
    There is a letter to Baden Powell ?
    Two Army group personal messages from the c_in_c
    Lots of other paper work which I haven't look properly at them yet.

    I will post individual ones on here, just thought I would show you a quick look at what my recently found.

    Unsolved Mystery

      As you have military correspondence it is a good bet that this may have been Powell's things at one time
