OK will do. I'll get it on this evening.

Mr Greaves, I send them in via a courier, no problems at all. I always have to ask that the buyer is over 18!.

Its the same with the M-H's, I use TNT, no problems as they are antiques.

I might just have too, the South Africa exchange rate is very poor at 11:1 , it was 14:1!. That makes the gin bill go up a bit!, ah well.

I nearly Khakhad Harry for the camera!.
