Perhaps a Holy Grail date for programme collectors - do any other members have issues in their collection from September 2nd 1939 ? This is a London Combination programme, Tottenham Reserves v. Crystal Palace Reserves.

(I'm trying to add a couple of other pics with text, but for some reason my system won't have it ! Spurs would have been at home to Southampton in Division 2 on the Monday evening, Sept 4th. There's no doubt that the programme for that would have been prepared/printed prior to the weekend, it would be amazing if any of those got out and have survived)

Section of text for above programme. For our generation I guess it's a little difficult to comprehend how anxious and frightened everyone must have been in 1939.
