    Steve, The copies I had for sale were offered first to Arnhem Fellowship members and all went in pays sometimes to be a member of the Fellowship........

    Well this eBay seller doesn't seem to think so. Perhaps I should start scanning photos from my own Arnhem books!

    Here's his copyright explanation;

    Images used and for sale on our site, unless otherwise stipulated, are in the public domain because copyright has expired. This applies to Australia, the European Union and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years. This also applies to U.S. works where the copyright has expired, often because its first publication occurred prior to January 1, 1923.

    If you feel this or any other assignation is incorrect, please let us know along with pertinent details by clicking below and we will look into it.

    Yeah I've wondered about those guys as well. They just grab images anywhere they can find them on the web including this forum and sell crappy prints. Often they aren't even the best examples of what is freely available digitally and that could be made better yourself with a printer. I informed one person whose group photo they used. He contacted them and they took it down. To tell you the truth I'm not even sure of his legitimacy to the copyright on that particular photo. No collector of original prints or negatives would go near this company.

    Clearly a stack of them are IWM and I know for a fact that one of the stills I personally had made. The IWM then made that negative available to the general public!!!

    You're all welcome by the way ;)

    So...'no' to the big meet up idea eh? Oh well, just continue as you are then eh lads? :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I heard there's a book out this year all about John Frost's golf clubs. It's a two volume boxed set full of previously unpublished photos, wrapped in parachute silk from David Lord's supply drop and has a lanyard for a carry handle made out of parachute cord from DZ X. The whole thing's supposed to smell of Mepacrine tablets and it's understood that once read, you'll sound as posh as Johnny himself.

    I believe Pariso's already pre-ordered it from Amazon.

    I'm getting the special edition leatherbound version! Volume 1 uses the hide of a wild boar shot by Johhny Frost en route to the bridge, whilst Volume 2 uses the hide of the cow struck down by Browning's glider. The hide was personally autographed by the General once he had left his glider.

    Be careful with that, I thought the first thing they all did was pee over the border - you might find your cow hide smells a bit :biggrin:

    A small number of 'With Nothing Bigger than a Bren Gun' have been reprinted. If you would like to order a copy details and prices can be found on the Arnhem Fellowship web site. Bren Gun.jpg

    You might want to have a word with Meekins' pricing then.
  13. Pompey Pal

    Well that reflects the excellent value offered by being a member of the Fellowship doesn't it? Whereas Paul Meekins is selling to the general public and offering a hitherto rare book, signed by it's author. So I don't imagine his price is too far out of kilter with other booksellers. Either way, it's good that a nice little booklet like this is going to be available again.

    You're missing the point. Look at the link again.

    Even though Paul's £29 price is obviously a mistake (probably from the previous version when it was available) the Fellowship price is still cheaper than that being offered by Paul Meekins at £9.50 to a UK address (incl postage) and £12 to Europe. It's £2 cheaper if you're a member of the Fellowship

    ...and that was my point and that's where you should have left it :rolleyes:

    Thanks Simon.

    Been away a long time on this thread and not happy to read what happened a while ago. Paul Pariso even decided to leave this, you could say "his", thread, a pity. Can the moderators please intervene and, should the troublemaking continue, warn the troublemakers: no fights here in the open, otherwise dispensation? Respectful discussion is the key word, as far as I am concerned, and I'm sure it's one of the basic rules of the forum.
    Thank you, best regards, Paul
