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

It takes some massive liberties with History, if I was 100% honest about it I would probably be sued for slander. Suffice to say a very large slice could be labelled 'as told by.............'
Twin ply would be a better use of the money.

Can't say I'm surprised. I heard her speak once at the NAM, sharing the stage with Knight and Snook. I know that's stiff company but I was decidedly underwhelmed. I think JY's book will be the new one to get, but it has not yet appeared.

Steve,

I've only just sent the illustrations in for approval, so a few more months at least.

I'm in agreement with Frank over this latest offering. Lots of mis-spellings, suppositions and material which has previously been refuted by others.

That together with a number of totally unnecessary photographs did not help.

But that's just my opinion. I am sure others may enthuse over it...

I should realised what to expect when I saw that John Chard was depicted on the front cover wearing a blue tunic...

John

I will exercise patience. Like Frank I can't wait for the Victoria's Secret photos though - it's our age.

Steve so that's why John is taking so long with the photos and captions, the plot thickens.
