Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

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

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
