It was amongst the fire-damaged contents of a house which was being cleared.
The head of the Czech Mint Company Ales Brix, which co-financed the film, said the firm had been honoured to have a part in the project.

Now the vintage postcard album – with the postcards once sent to her mother – has been handed over to Jessica in Cardiff to treasure as a family heirloom.
Dr Leclaire told The leather-bound album contains more than 50 postcards from all over the world and includes some cartoons and several drawings of animals countryside landscapes.Dr Leclaire has spent her childhood in Dorset and in Paris …but so far no one has any idea how postcards once addressed to her mother ended up in a skip in Cardiff.A new Czech documentary film pays tribute to one of the country’s last remaining war heroes, Czechoslovak RAF veteran General Emil Boček.When war veteran General Emil Boček voiced the dream to go up in a Spitfire once more a number of organizations including the Czech Spitfire Club and the Czech Mint company got together to make it come true.With cooperation from the British authorities they arranged a trip to London’s Biggin Hill where a disbelieving General Boček climbed into the cockpit of a Spitfire and took to the skies for a twenty minute flight, piloting the aircraft himself for a while after it was airborne.General Boček was present at the film screening and said he greatly enjoyed “re-living the experience”, telling journalists he had been afraid to believe it would actually happen until he was sitting in the cockpit.
