    Indeed it does. Still have my copy somewhere as well as the UFO and Monster one.
    Thanks for the memory jogger. I devoured Usborne books.

    Another big favourite were Letraset books. Dday Battle of Britain. Good memories!

    Saw some of the transfer ones in a charity shop recently - with the transfers - and twitched. Maybe I should've got them...

    Stuart Avery In my wagon & not a muleteer.

    Not so much a problem, but i came across it whilst looking for something else & i (can't put it down!)

    The ELEVENTH at War being the story of the 11TH HUSSARS (Prince Albert's Own) though the years 1934-1945. BRIGADIER DUDLEY CLARKE C.B., C.B.E. What has interested me is the early days of the 7th Armoured Division: Them whats it Rats.:)

    Well worth the price the that i paid for it.

    Stu.

    From Normandy to Hanover June 1944-May 1945.

    And actually reading it instead of stacking

    Always a problem Clive, I tend to stack then have a blitz session of reading.

    yes mate but have decided I must now read

    and for the first time purchased a book because a casualty Chris Harley has traced to a cemetery in Ruislip was in the SLI and I thought his name would be mentioned so far its not and he is not in the casualty section.

    regards
    Clive

    So my moratorium lasted all of two weeks. Curse you Abebooks and your want list.
    The following wants showed up for cheap(er) prices so how could I say no?

    You got a copy of Tank Alert?!?

    I AM GREEN WITH ENVY.

    I wonder if this means you bought the copy that was flagged to my attention by abebooks a little while ago... :D

    Hi Chris
    I think I avoided sniping you on that one :D Got it through amazon.com. I look on there for rarer titles because the listings are quite different than amazon.ca. Though some dealers don't have Canadian shipping available, I;ve found that they're quite willing once you chat to them.
    Cheers
