Just wondering - what paperwork/docs would folk recommend be carried whilst 'in character', especially pertaining to a VAD nurse? And does anyone have recommendations for a good supplier of replica documents?

TIA.

I've got the pass, and the certificates but at present laptop/scanner issues.

Someone was knocking the passes out on Ebay but don't bother with them as they're post war.

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

I only just got this ticket of ebay, it might be fun for you to make something similar for a near by hospital

The size is 12cm by 9.5cm and the paper is like good quality white note paper.

I have this inside a letter, it should be easy to copy

. The size for this is 8.75cm by 7.5cm. The paper is very thin and a very light salmon colour.

I'd do a pdf but haven't a clue how too :oops:

I enquired about this to the ANS museum and they've come back and said ID wise they'd only carry a red cross id card and then any paperwork relating to the theatre they were involved in.

I was, however, only asking about QA.
