Presentation Freedom of the Borough, South Wales Borderers 24th Foot, 1948 (and newspaper clippings)

Full title: Presentation of the Freedom of the Borough to the Corps of the South Wales Borderers 24th Foot, at the Christ College Grounds Brecon, Friday 11th June 1948

A regimental programme booklet. 16 pages. Booklet measures c.15cm by 24.5cm

Has a crest embossed on the front cover.

Also comes with 3 newspaper clippings, dated from the time of the presentation, covering the ceremony. The clippings have been stapled together and stored inside the booklet, which has caused dome discoloration on the page where they were kept.

The condition of the booklet is generally ok. The covers have several minor scuffs and blemishes, and further light wear along the edges and corners, but the staple binding is intact. The middle two pages have become detached from the staple binding and are loose. All remaining pages are bound. There is yellowing to the inside pages throughout, and as also noted, there is discoloration on one page where the newspaper clippings were stored.
