99-Year-Old Biscuits Goes Up For Auction

99 Year Old Biscuits Goes Up For Auction

Two biscuits which survived the First World War will be up for sale at a Suffolk auction house on 19 June, and the bidding will start at £60.

A soldier, L. B Charles, who fought in the bloody battles of Gallipoli and the Dardanelles in Turkey, brought the biscuits home with him. They have been preserved for 99 years and now the bizarre war-time keepsakes are to be sold.

Each one has a label on that reads ‘Biscuits used by troops in Suvla Bay’, the Turkish peninsula captured by British forces after horrific fighting and massive losses during the Dardanelles Campaign.

The auctioneers expect the lot to attract higher bids on the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the 1914-18 conflict.
