This newspaper was actually in the box that the cigar box was in. It is a full edition of the Montreal Herald dated Wednesday, November 1, 1944.

Inside, on page 6 was an item about Bud getting his commission after Officer Training.

The image for the paper was taken from this photo of Bud enjoying the English sunshine and reading the Montreal Herald.
