MS section 'Mussolini: his part in my downfall'

Scope and Content

Part of the MS of ‘Mussolini: His Part in my Downfall’, written mostly in blue ink with MS annotations in black ink. One section of seven leaves stapled together, with MS labelling in black ink of capital letters A to G in the top right hand corners of the leaves. Leaves A, B, C and F crossed out with a single black MS vertical line. A small MS blue pen drawing at the top of leaf A of an unclear object. On the reverse of the leaves, showing the use of headed paper, a TS address ‘Monkenhurst | The Crescent | Hadley Common | Hertfordshire’. The final leaf is loose, but with a staple in the top left hand corner suggesting it was previously attached to something. MS annotations ‘Oct 43’ in the top right hand corner, twice (in red ink and below in pencil’, and ‘INSERT ON P x’ in red in the top centre. The writing on this leaf begins in blue ink but changes to black ink about halfway through.
