Folks, I've been moving house and need to off load a few things.

One odd little book is Desert Squadron by Victor Hourt, a Belgian serving in 272 Squadron.

Its a small 1960 edition, Corgi book.

Its available to a good home for say, a donation to maybe Help for Heroes or a veterans charity maybe.
If anyone is interested, first come forst serve.
Oh its not a detailed book, its a mans memories.

ok, John

thats in the post to you know, please bear in mind that if you were to buy this on the internet, abebooks.com etc you coudl end up spending up to 40 dollars. Please bear this in mind in your donation, the money is not going to me remember, not covering my postage, the gesture is intended to be for the charity and reflect the value of the item and the bargain you get.

Your original post gave no idea whatsoever of the "value" of the item.

Old Corgi paperbacks are readily available for 50p.

Perhaps, in retrospect, it would have been wise to suggest a minimum donation when posting?

I really didn't think one needed to point out a minimum donation amount.

You've got your 50pence book now so. Enjoy it.
