Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

Does Mrs/Miss SergioD acquiesce with this viewpoint?

Tasker - from your lips to God's ears .Hopefully MrsD will never find out - Suspect - somehow i dont think she would come up with the same value proposition !!!


As for the KIA to Walsh It wasnt me - easier (and cheaper) to put in a commission bid when only after 1 lot - I think If I had gone, would have been tempted to bid for Walsh at that price - probably just as well I didnt go !! Having said that I will always regret the Secretan miss so there is a lot to be said for going along.

At least this way the family get some Xmas presents particularly as there is not much in DNW's Dec sale.!!

She'll hear nothing from me, don't even know what you're on about! Not getting involved

Not too much in the DNW sale I have to agree, but as I mentioned earlier, I wouldn't consider selling a medal just before Xmas if i hoped to get the best price. That being said, apart from SAGs, there is some quality material there so a cheeky, speculative bid or two might pay off.
