Images of Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, who is pictured meeting children, veterans, and men from the Royal Air Force.

The images were produced from the negatives depicted in Contact Sheet 16 of Red Contact File 20 from the Jersey Evening Post (JEP) Photographic Archive.
