The CNEP Spring exhibition and our Sparnacian Philatelic Spring will be the opportunity to highlight the centenary of this event by presenting an exeptional artefact: a slip sorting mail found among some other papers on a postal agent OS Woody, who died during the sinking. Only 23 documents are listed so far. The one presented is remarkable for its rarity and quality of its preservation.
