Turkish war loan leaflet, with four pages. Hand annotated (probably) by the donor, Captain B. Brock, "Turkish War Loan from Izmir, Turkey, where we landed ex Greece". Leaflet is in the Turkish language and mentions monies including 5 000, 3 000 and 2 000 lira. It is printed on cream paper, with black font and features eye-catching illustrations in black and red. The illustrations are of the idealised Turkish landscape, a Father Christmas figure hauling off bags of money, champagne if your save your money and marching stick figures with a banner and heads portrayed as money bags.
