These pieces of authentic material were cut from the aircraft in 1918 (as described in pencil on the reverse of one of these cut pieces) by a British serviceman who then made them into pages for his personal photo album. They were obtained from the UK recently, minus the photos. In total there were six 6 x 15 inch linen pieces, folded in the center, obtained in the collection. See detailed photo:
