Tax included.

Overall: 28.5cm (11.2in) x 23cm (9in)

 Head and shoulders monochrome photograph (image size 19cm (7.5in) x 13cm (5.2in)), inscribed in blue ink in Field Marshal Montgomery's hand 'Montgomery of Alamein / F.M.’, depicting him in white sheepskin coat. Framed and glazed. 

Monty enjoyed sheepskin linings to his coats. Frank Salisbury’s famous painting of him as the commander of the 21st Army Group portrayed him in fleece lined RAF issue Irvin flying jacket that he habitually wore on campaign. In 1949 he appeared in a full length white sheepskin number at Gstaad to present the Monty ski jumping cup amidst an adoring crowd.
