A collection of rare artefacts of Jewish interest, including documents from the right-wing Irgun militia which operated in Palestine during the British Mandate, will go to auction on September 25.
The papers, now belonging to an Israeli collector, will go under the hammer at Mullock's Auctioneers' next specialist sale in Ludlow, Shropshire. Among them is what is thought to be the only copy of a "Wanted for Murder" poster, demanding the death of the British High Commissioner, Sir Harold MacMichael. This is expected to make around £2,000.
