I have come across some publications from His Majesty's Stationery office dated 1942 - 1946. The titles are:
Front Line 1940 - 1941
The Army at War - Tunisia,
The Eighth Army - Sept 1941 - January 1943
Target: Germany. The US Army Air Forces' official story of the V111 Bomber Command's 1st Year over Europe.
Report by The Supreme Allied Commander Mediterranean to the Combined Chiefs of Staff on The Italian Campaign - 8th Jan 1944 - 10th May 1944.

They must have belonged to my late husband's father who served in the Desert under Montgomery.
Does anyone know if they are collector's items. The prices on them are one shilling and one shilling and sixpence.

Aha, exdc, yes that's the same as one of mine. I love the description "used". Cheers.
This is more like it chrissa

Is yours the same as this one??
PRINTED BY HARRISON & SONS LTD, currently offered at £150

Woah!! Yes, exactly the same.
Don't get too excited yet - there are no bids on any of these items yet. Fingers crossed.

I don't see the name Harrison & Sons on it but the cover is the same. It cost one and six then.
If you look at completed listings under military history on eBay there are a large number unsold.
Here is one example of 4 HMSO publications going begging at £10.

I know Canary, but I was going to either throw them out or give them to a charity shop and I could really do with that sort of money to come along right now.

It's been interesting though.
chrissa1, if you eventually find out that they are not wanted by collectors, try donating them to the Imperial War Museum in London. I've done that with wartime publications and the Keeper of the Printed Word (I'm not making that up; that's what the librarians's called!) was quite grateful.
