- Ship world wide, will combine shipping for multiple purchases Here is a highly scarce World War II US 15th Army Air Force Joe Louis Boxing Exhibition Invitation. Addressed to a Captain, 15th AAF 1096 QM AS. Recreational Inter Allied Boxing Show sponsored by 15th Air Force Special Service Section, Bari Stadium, Italy. Saved as souvenir. Has damage but is fully legible. Joe Louis was quite the hero and inspiration to all US servicemen and traveled extensively to raise morale, support the War Effort and raise funds for widows and war orphans. The famed Champ is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. As a noted, the German Air Force clobbered the port of Bari Italy, killing upwards to a thousand service personnel and civilians while sinking a number of vessels. One vessel destroyed carried chemical weapons in the event we should need them. Ironically these weapons multiplied the casualties as survivors were exposed to chemical weapons. The Boxing Invitation is in about fair condition and is 75 years old. - WWII Paper, Documents, Ephemera- 15th Army Air Forces Special Service Entertainment Event- Inter Allied Boxing Show featuring Joe Louis - Form estate of 15th Army Air Force Captain, 1096 Quartermaster, Air Service- Legible, addressed to Captain- Ripped left corner, upper right corner bent, folded, wrinkles, handling, fading- Measures 5.5 x 4 inches- Potential Provence: Captain Henry C Ockert, 1096 QM SV, New Haven, Connecticut - Domestic buyers offered discounted 1st Class Service, padded mailer, tracking - International buyers are discounted 1st Class Mail International, padded mailer, customs label - Pay Pal payment due w/in 7 days, contact me w/in 3 if payment not made immediately Check out all my store and auction listings.
