Not sure I'm finished with him yet but this briefcase belonged to Mr William Flutter of Chandler's Ford. He worked for British Rail all his life but in the sixties his job was to sell on and dispose of all Southern Region's Steam Assets.

He invited tenders, offers and requests from everyone from Scrap Dealers to Railway Preservation Groups and he sold and gave them everything from complete locos to boiler suits, tools and lamps and everything in-between. In June 1967 his office printed and signed a piece of paper that declared 'No More Spares' and the last invoice looks to have been issued in 1968.

Love the briefcase but the star of the show for me is that fab road/railway lamp & the light from it.
Nice collection of stuff here & the nostalgia that goes with it.
