45 No Author Stated A Pocket Guide To India (For Military Personnel 1943 WWII)
Washington D.C. Special Service Division. Services of supply united States Army 1943 soft cover Very good 
This is part of a series of small booklets given to military personnel entering foreign countries in wartime. The booklets are literally pocket sized and very straightforward about dos and don'ts, cultural differences, and choices which could possibly be to an American's detriment. Here's an example: "Rabies are common. Avoid strange dogs and jackals and obtain quick treatment if bitten." The booklet measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" and has 68 pages, including two unused blank ones for notes. I also have five other titles for different countries.

Japanese Christmas Card . Best Wishes From Japan, Norman Berry
47 Norman Berry Japanese Christmas Card . Best Wishes From Japan
Japan No publisher stated Circa 1940's Cardstock Very good condition 
This is not a postcard, but a holiday greeting card. It measures 4"x5" and has a plain white back with no writing and no stamping. The only personal thing is on the front at the bottom margin. The sender wrote, "See you soon. Norman Berry." The card was likely sent in an envelope along wih a Christmas letter for the folks at home. Many of the Christmas cards from Japan were colorful and rather Americanesque. But this card is a good collectible, as it brings together the icons of the Japanese culture and the time in which the sender would never forget.
