    Ijma I-V sponsered by the Indian Jute Mills Association. No mentioning of any Ray S, nor Henry B in the book. Mikkel

    Hello

    I think he meant the authors Henry Boot and Ray Sturtivant... I'm sure that Henry Boot passed away, at the time of publication of "gifts of war".

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. It was early morning.

    X4551: IJMA I
    X4552: IJMA II
    X4552: IJMA III
    X4555: IJMA IV
    X4556: IJMA V

    All from Henry B and Ray S :-)
