Graflex Speed Graphic

Money in, money out. Got my tax return on Wednesday, and promptly blew it an hour later on eBay. Six days later and this large format press camera kit arrives at my door: the Graflex Speed Graphic 3 1/4 x 4 1/4. The camera itself is in great shape for something made in the 40's, and it came with film goodies and holders that are a real bonus. All the sheet and pack film included in the kit expired between 1955 and 1963. And I'll have to do some research, but the case it came in looks like it was military issue, with "Lieut. P J Tomelin" stamped on it, so this camera may have some interesting war history to it.
