PostSubject: Buyer beware!..   Thu Sep 14, 2017 6:53 pm

I bought this first day cover off e bay last week..
i have seen it kicking about on there for the last
few years, i had looked at it very clearly and i
knew exactly what i was buying!. at the end of the
day i have a bit of ephemera and that just add's to
the pile. my question is.. was this cover officially
sanctioned?. it was certainly signed off. so who can
spot the howler's..

On the cover, it says that De Gonville Bromhead won the VC at RD.....and has him in the 1/24th (SWB) but other than that, I dunno.....

Hi Les
I also caved in a couple of years back and got one , cant say I've looked at it closely , I also bought the one featuring the Naval Bgde or Eshowe First Day Cover as well . Outside of it mentioning ' De ' Bromhead for Gonville and the SWB I didnt see much else ?? .

Hi SRB, Gary... yes the three mistakes leap off the page.. It was just plain Gonville
Bromhead and he was in the 2nd 24th.. i guess i'm just being picky but i also did
not like to see the SWB badge superimposed on the image of the defence for the
obvious reason that they did not exist until two years later. and the thing that stands
out for me is the fact that the cover is limited to one hundred, mine being number 49.
so that leaves me with the image of the Brigadier signing 100 cover's.. presumably
he looked at the finished product, was satisfied and signed them off. like i say maybe
i'm just being picky, but surely this misrepresent's the actual history of the events!.
i find it very strange. cheers xhosa
