Hi Steve
Agreed mate , 2.94 GBP's used , that's as cheap as I've ever seen it , an invaluable book in my opinion , even with the 11 GBP's Postage to Australia it's still very cheap . I certainly paid more but not sure , I got mine at a bargain price but not this much of a bargain ! LOL.

Hi Gary me old wombat. Very Happy

Yes, I got mine cheap, but nowhere near as cheap as this, this is surely the bargain bucket of the year, and also a very good book.

I bet you can't wait to go to iSandlwana again, not too far off now mate, you lucky so and so. agree Salute

My new book the South African Campaign arrived in the post from San Clemente, Italy today, it had been nicely bubble wrapped and placed inside a cardboard box, the box was then placed inside a large green heavy duty gardening sack, which was very thoughtful of the seller, In my haste to get at the book I failed to notice that there was a bloody great spider sat in the bottom of the sack, well I noticed it when it came charging out of that sack and across my dining table. Its somewhere in the Kitchen. It looked like a black widow spider and now I'm having vision of being bitten by the thing,  its a good book though. Rolling Eyes

PS if anyone knows anything about spiders this one had a white circle on its back end.

LOL!

It;s a deaths head cobwebber mate. Shocked Shocked Shocked

No, just call the pest controllers, they have all sorts of things to catch them, best do it before it starts hiding somewhere you can't find the bugger, if it's a female it might start laying eggs, you might get a bloody house full before you know it. Shocked Mad Joker

I know, I will send Mrs Shifter round, she has a way of making things vanish. agree Rolling Eyes

Pages 21 & 34 are missing!..


That's a shame, page 21 highlights the transport problem. the photographs are
of Crealock and Clery..page 22 goes on to describe the columns, more the
central column, and the conditions at Helpmaaker. the photograph was half of
the 91st spreading over to the next page. a great pic.

Page 34 show's how the 24th marched to Natal to begin the Zulu campaign.
it describes how they dyed the helmets, fitted skins around the barrels of
weapons, and the general bedraggled state of the uniforms. nice sketch of
Frippp's showing the 24th on the march.. the top photograph is of the
bayonet of choice.. ' The Lunger '.

The seller might not have been aware of the missing pages. but still, bummer.

Where did the last line about missing pages come from? I don't see it in Graves post.

I think LH is having a lark, like Steve has said, Graves never mentioned it, in fact, he said it arrived in excellent condition.

Unless of course it was LH who sold it. scratch

Thanks for the tip about the ' silver book' guys. It's not one I've heard of before but with all the great comments it was clearly a book to look out for. Happily ABE came up trumps and I've just finished polishing it. Just got to finish Sugdens 'Nelson Sword of Albion' and then I'll tuck in. Only 450 pages to go!
