During World War Two all non-armed forces were given a Travel Identity Card for travel between Great Britain and Northern Ireland or Eire.

Printed on green card, the document was issued by the Passport office in London and contained the holder’s photo, full name, identity number and National Registration number.

This one was issued to Geoff Coe when he was just 16 years old. Many thanks to Geoff, of Bracebridge Avenue for supplying us with his card for our Those Were The Days column.

If you would like to submit a photo, send it with information to our office on Ryton Street in Worksop.
