World Banknotes Post War 10 s Pick 42c (BY GU32b) dated 1st July 1966 (2) a constively numbered pair serial numbers 20/W 2536 & 20/W 2537 both bearing the signature L.A. Guilemette titled Treasurer and the notes in lilac on light green underprint on obverse and the reverse in purple featuring the Guernsey seal on a guilloche panel. Printed by Perkins Bacon Limited London inscribed in small script at lower centre on reverse. Both UNC and very scarce in this condition and as a pair. After 1945 the Islanders had to rebuild their lives, the return of evacuees, especially children who could hardly remember their relatives. Many properties had been damaged through wood being stripped from them for fuel, the Island had an enormous debt liability, tourism was destroyed and the growing industry was damaged. The amount of scrap metal collected is now regretted. Rationing continued as in the UK, until the mid 1950s. Many traditional businesses, such as fishing and quarrying would not return. So the Islanders looked to other opporties, the physical import/export of goods was difficult as the harbours were too small and freight cost too expensive, so control of trade was looked at, the right to supply Mateus Rosé to the UK was controlled by a Guernsey business and it became the top selling wine in the world. By the 1960s the Island had recovered, tourism was important again, the horticulture industry was booming, 500 million tomatoes being exported annually, then came the crash.
