Hi All,

Due to the post having to be taken down for the Lancer I am sorry that interested parties such as impi, 90th, littlehand, Sergio, springbok9 and other have missed out. I know you all liked this piece and I wanted to raise charitable funds.

It's still good new for Bill and the Brecon museum, I was contacted by someone unrelated to this site who saw my Lancer, and therefore have decided to let him go to pastures new. It was an opportunity I could not let pass by me. The way he was constructed (only held via 2 steel pins) he might not have made a long journey and I would hate to think that he got trashed in the post.

I know what Bill is up against having visited the museum and talking to him, he does an absolutely outstanding job on an extremely tight budget.

I rang Bill today at the museum and he is sending me out a Gift Aid form, therefore I can tell you all that Brecon Museum will receive a total donation from me of £625. I know you may be disappointed but don't be, just think what that money can do at Brecon.

I would also like to thank Pete who did all he could to promote this.

Thank you all again.
cheers
Richie

I would echo Sprinbok's comments. A truly magnificent gesture.

My sincere thanks to Richie.

Hi Lads,
Thank you, as most of you know it is something I have always wanted to do.
cheers
Richie

Hi Bill,
The pleasure was all mine I can assure you, I'll see what I can do in the future to help out again in some small way.
cheers
