I am wondering if someone could confirm what colour programmes were issued by Millwall post WW2. I currently have 2 different coloured homes v Southampton for the seasons 1946/7 and 1947/8.

For 1947/48 season I have a Pink and a Green programme dated 27/9/1947

For 1946/47 season I have a White and a Buff programme dated 16/11/1946

Are there other colours for these matches which i should seek out - or (hopefully) are these the only two colours used in those seasons?

Hi,

27/9/1946 I have a green copy

16/11/46 I have a green & a pink copy

Other colours used which I have for other matches are: blue; buff; red; white. Not sure what other colours, if any, were used for the Southampton issues.

There was a paper shortage after the war which is probably why so many different colours were used as well as the poor quality of paper.

Hope that this helps
Ian

I wouldn't get too stressed about it - there may not be 4 for each (that's why I only collect 1).

Happy hunting - the prices of issues from these years has dropped hugely in the past year so you may get very lucky. Thumbs Up
