Morning. until Steve pointed it out i was a bit stumped, i was last
at the NAM in 2004, i went to see the Fripp. but i recall how large
the Yvon is, taking up the whole length of the wall, quite remarkable
to think that when it was commissioned it was to be three times the
size, have you been to the NAM Gary..i had some fun dodging the
security in order to take some photo's of the Fripp, just next door is
the Royal Hospital Chelsea, i wondered round the back and found
what i was looking for..the memorial to the fallen at Chillianwallah,
a fine looking edifice looking like Cleopatra's needle. xhosa

Hey Gary, i had no idea it will be closed that long..in 2004 my
wife was in London visiting my sister, she went out of her way
to visit the Royal Hospital at my request and talked to some of
the residents who assured her there was no memorial as far as
they were aware, cutting it short i went there myself a couple
of months later and investigated myself.. its a very large
complex which involved a walk of some distance down the side
of the hospital and round the back which open's up onto a vast
landscaped area, i had to blag my way past some riggers who
were setting up for an outside concert, but i could see the
memorial just beyond, it could'nt be missed, its a huge obelisk
with the names of the officers and men who fell at Chillianwallah.
decorated with regimental device's. i had not heard it had been
relocated..which would have been some job, i wonder where it is
now..does anybody know.. cheers xhosa

Hiya Gary, no mate i was off to the land of nod when i saw your post.it was a long
day is all. Aussie slang!, it made perfect sense to me, i got it straight away. Very Happy
yes i have read it and like most of Ian's work its thoughtfully researched and sits
well as something a bit different than his usual stuff, other authors seem to follow
in his wake..copying him i think..i will dig it out again, most of the modern stuff ends
up in the loft, just have'nt got the room in this dolls house i live in. hope your day

Hi Les
Yes I agree , I really enjoyed ' Marching ' IK had copies when we were with him last November , it had just been released . I got him to sign it for me so that was nice of him . Do you have ' Despatches From The Front ; The Zulu Wars ' by Grehan & Mace ? , a couple of errors here and there , the incorrect casualty return for Inyezane , but still interesting enough , worth a read for us bookaholics !

Hi Les .
I think you're correct it may well have been a reprint , it isn't the ' Spies ' book , it's ' Despatches In The Zulu Wars ' LC's correspondance along with Crealock , Wood , Bellairs , Pearson etc , also gives the 5 witness officer statements for LC's excuse for an inquiry into Isandlwana ! , along with other personal , there are a couple of bad errors with the lists , but that happens sometimes . I have it ' Spies & Espionage in the Zulu war ' I also haven't cracked it as yet , Love , I have about 15 more I need to crack open HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I'm taking some books of Ian's to Sth Africa for him to sign in Oct , not sure how many more I have to lug in my case .

pretty good this year bookwise, there has been a few cracker's JY's is
a real standout, i'm looking forward a lot to Neil's work.. you might as
well get a second home in Africa, your certainly getting your face about
there, Very Happy Yeah i get a buzz when i come across a signed ltd ed, i think
it link's one to the author in a kind of personal way. i know that sound's a
bit artsy fartsy..

Think i will pick up a nice copy of Despatches off abe in the by and by.

Yes , go for it , you can get it rather cheaply if you look around the main online sites as you are well aware . I to am looking forward to Neil's work , I spoke to him and unfortunately he has no date for the release , it's up to the Publishers ! Suspect Don\'t agree . I'm getting a copy of JY's book from him , hopefully he slows down a bit at work and has the time to send it off ! Very Happy Very Happy .

Gary,

What the Despatches book actually contains are the collected reports from The London Gazette. So errors in the casualty lists are contemporary ones rather than those of the modern editors.

In answer to your remark above the earliest date for my work to slow down is January 2017!

Sorry for the delay.

Thanks Gary for that, something i wanted to ask you and other ' bookies ',
i don't mind at all if when i buy an older book if it has the name of the
previous owner or a bookplate and such..what i was wondering was do
any of you take ownership of your books and add your own name or
bookplate, damn if it slightly devalues it, i care nothing for that! but i like
the idea that when my small collection is sold off and scattered to the
world a bit of me goes with each book. to sign your name or not, that is
the question. xhosa

Sometimes it adds value. I have a number of books from the collection of Hammond Tooke and other collectors. I find it fun to see who owned the books and sometimes the date they acquired them. But that's just me. As you say the pleasure is from the book, hell all of mine are pretty well thumbed because I use them.

Thanks for that Frank, i agree totally, about ninety percent of mine are used and have gone
through god knows how many hands, i love the smell of old books and like you wonder who
owned them previously. but do you sign your acquisitions..putting your moniker on them and
taking ownership..i wonder in the far distant future when someone is putting together their
own collections would they come across books with your name inscribed?. i have some from
various people like Hattersley, Huw Jones and the like, one of my clarkes is signed from her
to Borquin. but to be honest i put my name on everything bookwise! i have my own designed
bookplate and have been trying to work my way through them, that's how eventually i will
come across the Grehan..i recently bought a book from someone we all know, it had no
inscription at all. to inscribe or not!. who does, who does'nt . cheers

Hi Les ,
To answer your question I've never signed any of my books , even those from when I was a teenager , I never gave it a thought to be honest , I was always thinking they'd be in the house , and if you lost it , no-one can return it if only your name is in it , so I didn't see the point ! , now I'm thinking I should sign them ! . I certainly have some that were owned previously , some do have their names in them . Salute
Cheers 90th

Hi Les.
Ive never signed any of my library, maybe when im old and grey(er). What I do take pride in are books that have been presented to me because of help that Ive given to the authors. Its nice to have that little dedication and I do have a number of them. The last one should appear in the back of John Youngs latest. And a couple coming out this year will also give me a mention. But that pales into insignificance when you open a flyleaf and see SB or Huw Jones, worth much more than money.

I don't sign any of mine and yet the books I value most are those old editions with a contemporary name or bookplate - particularly individuals with a connection to the AZW. Not very logical I know. I do not seek modern author signed copies at all. Which original owner pleases you the most?

I do have ' The Military Badges Of South Africa & Rhodesia ' by Colin Owen , not sure who the two signatures are inside the front cover , but someone has written a quotation by Winston Churchill , Owen has signed next to his photograph , as has Paul L. Franche , who also has signed his photo in the acknowledgements , so no doubt it was owned by possibly someone of some note ? ,
Oh , and the quote , which I hadn't heard before is '' I did not become the Queen's first minister to preside at the dissolution of the Empire ! '' Winston Churchill .

My favourite Churchill ism was when he was accused of being drunk after calling a lady ugly, That wonderful response of "Yes madam but in the morning I shall be sober".
I have a set of GE Cory 'The Rise of South Africa' Volume 1 he pays tribute to his landlord a Mr Kendal for allowing him a cheaper rental, in each subsequent volume he dedicates to the same family with an appropriate thanks, for cheap rentals and free food. As you get through the series his thanks gets more and more. Very entertaining comments.

Correct Les, Cameron expected a remain vote and therefor made no plan 'A', 'B', 'C' or 'D', he got the shock of his life when the good people of England and Wales voted out. And DisMay is dragging her feet with brexit, she was a remainiac and is trying to keep us in, she is going to make a mess of things unless someone tells her to get a grip, she was hopeless as home sec, she is so far proving to be the same as a stand in PM.

If only Churchill was still around today, we would never have been in this situation in the first place.

The man is a legend. Salute

below is a couple of signed..the bookplates..the one on the left

on the right is from paper taken from a nineteenth century scrap-

Hi Les mate, nice bookplates my friend, very impressive.

I was just looking through the pictures in the "ISANDULA COLLECTION" posted by Pete, it is so fascinating looking at the old B+W photo's, you can see the proudness and courage of the men in their poses for the photographer, big respect, marvellous stuff.

I hope you are out of the dog house with the good lady wife. Very Happy

Best regards buddy. Salute

Morning Martin and Gary, thanks guys.. the plate is made up bull
s..t. i just got to thinking when over the years i saw so many
books on our subject with owners bookplates, it sounds on the face
of it very pretentious and i'm sure it will devalue my books when
they do end up back on the market, but wtf, i wont be around to
see any of that Very Happy , i would'nt like to calculate how much i have
spent over the years, but people who collect stuff will understand.

Martin mate, who know's..she plays her cards close to her chest,
i'm currently in a state of compliance, the next thing for me is to
get her to the shops, winter coat and boots usually goes down well.
she's a cracking girl, but after 39 years together her tolerance for
my bull s..t is wafer thin at the best of times.i just keep hitting
her with love, it seems to work..at times. No cheers xhosa

Good shot Les, as the old saying goes, "seek and ye shall find".

I bet you were rooting for that for hours, I am like that in my house, if I can't find things right away, I will root about everywhere for it, the Shifter just watches me with a grin on her face, she knows I won't give up until I find it (which can sometimes take forever), in fact I am still rooting about for some things, the latest is for my motorbike licence. I am thinking of getting a small bike (a little 125cc), so that I can put a topbox on it and use it to get the shopping, these flaming steep hills here are a nightmare to walk up now that our useless council has clobbered the mini bus service, not much point in having a bus pass when there are no buses. A little 125 would be about right, I no longer need a big bike, it would be a waste of power for the short trips I would use it for.

Glad you found the book mate. Salute

LOL, do you mean terrorising the area wearing my fringed leather jacket with skull and bones on the back, revving up the massive 4 stroke engine of the 125 and making it growl like a lion, or do you mean putt putting along with the little engine purring away like a kitten. Very Happy
