WWII Rare troop The Pied Piper magazines including seven editions of The Pied Piper, a magazine produced for British troops in occupied Germany in the immediate aftermath of WWII. The magazines were clearly put together from contributions from the men themselves – amounting to the usual mixture of cartoons, photographs, humour, prose etc. However, one important element is the number of well-crafted poems contained in these pages. A well-known mark of the legacy of WWI was the wealth of poetry which emerged from the likes of Wilfred Owen, Sassoon, Rosenberg and the rest. Yet WWII never left such a legacy. Within the pages of these magazines are a number of poem by otherwise unknown authors which might just redress that deficit. The magazines are in very good condition, with only minor tears to edges (7)
