AUTOGRAPHS.

Some of these autographs I have collected myself or purchased them from a third party but most of them come from one autograph book . Whoever it belonged to was probably in the eighth army as they are references to Egypt, Palestine, Libya,Tunisia,Sicily, and Italy .Also a lot of them have interesting comments not just autographs. If anybody recognizes any of the names I would like to hear from them. Hopefully to get some of the history behind the names or the history of this autograph book.
