- you mention Tolkien's 'garage/office' - well of course that was the arrangement he had at Sandfield Rd, where he and Edith lived between 1953 and 1968 (IIRC). During the war, ie up to 1945, Tolkien had a proper study, in his house on Northmoor Road.

However; the thing is that of course those wartime scraps would have been in the study-garage: somewhere or other. Along with all his diaries and other papers. Tolkien seems to have thrown away very little. One thing that moved me very much at an exhibition back in 1992 was a letter which he'd kept from the mother of one of the batmen who looked after Tolkien and his fellow officers during WWI, asking whether Lt. Tolkien could tell her anything of her son's death. Tolkien had kept that letter through all his house moves, from 1916 until his own death in 1973. He never threw it away. I guess he never forgot the ones who didn't come home.
