Description: A priceless original: the Order of Service booklet for the "Second Army Thanksgiving Service on Conclusion of Campaign in North West Europe, 6th June 1944 to 5th May 1945," SIGNED in ink on the colorful front cover: "Winston S. Churchill, Dwight Eisenhower and "B.L. Montgomery, Field Marshal."

The cover features the Second Army shield surrounded by the insignias of each individual division, in full color. The contents commence with a page titled "The Path of the Army" that chronologically details every major locale conquered from D-Day to the Baltic. The complete text of the prayer service follows.

The staples have rusted somewhat, there is light foxing and spotting to the contents and faint yellowing to the page edges, but overall this fragile piece has survived admirably.
