BTW please forgive the graininess of the scans, which is largely due to the poor quality paper these authentic wartime issues of The Tailor & Cutter were printed on. I suspect that due to rationing, quality paper was not readily available and it looks almost like newsprint quality paper was used and this has deteriorated over the decades. It is all part of the authenticity and grittiness (literally!) of these drafts.
