On offer is a charming, original manuscript relic of one American woman's war service in support of her country being a birthday, memory book and autograph album kept by a beloved World War II parachute rigger named Jenny. There are about 40 entries, and most were done in late May 1944 by many of her co-workers and a few from sailors and other enlisted men and officers she knew. Given the dates involved Jennie and her friends may very well have helped in the preparation for the D-Day invasion, which occurred a couple weeks later. The home towns of the women show how America came together for the war, since there are ladies from Milton, Massachusetts, Seattle, Washington, Dearborn, Michigan, Leon, Iowa and Cuero, Texas. There is also a photograph of a motorcyclist named Joe who has inscribed it to Jennie. The novelty outer boards are wood, and the inner pages have light wear and some browning but overall G+.
