War Time Stockholm

War time Stockholm:
LT. Smith, Navigator with Co-Pilot LT. Bill Pond. They flew into neutral Stockholm together in April 1945 on clandestine supply missions.

Period post card souvenirs. Dad also brought home a large supply of unused Swedish Ration Stamps. The Ration Stamps were distributed to the fliers going over as everything was rationed in Sweden, as it was in the US and most all other "civilized" countries during the war.
They were held over in Stockholm for a few days on each mission.
