My success rate in giving stuff away here is lamentable, but I’ll give it another go:
I have no use for the following books and they are available for postage cost only (£3.20 each – Royal Mail Second Class Parcel) in the UK:
The Secret Lives of Lawrence of Arabia – Bantam Press edition 1971 by Philip Knightley
An Ordinary Soldier by Doug Beattie MC – RIR – career and Afghanistan.
The Royal Navy in Old Photographs by Wilfrid Pym Trotter
Machine Guns by Terry Gander
Napoleon’s Military Machine by Philip Haythornthwaite
The First Destroyers by David Lyon
If anyone wants more than one I’ll try and combine postage but some of these are quite meaty and if they go over 2kg total they’ll have to go separately. I’ll try my best.
PM me if you want anything and we can sort out addresses – payment will be via paypal.

Warhammer: The Game of Fantasy Battles, Sixth Edition, – GONE

I just thought I’d give TWW people first shout.
I clear out old books I’ve had in job lots now and then, but its getting harder to give them away. The local charity shop is now refusing to take hardbacks. as if they can’t sell them in about four weeks they get rid of them and their shredders jam on the hard boards
I’ll give it a couple of days and then try elsewhere. Thanks for the links.

Dear old Terry Gander, I remember all those Airfix guides wot ‘e wrote.
Is he still around?
Obvious contrarian and passive aggressive old prat, who is taken far too seriously by some and not seriously enough by others.17/08/2021 at 16:09 #160624
I don’t know – he must be in his eighties if he is, mustn’t he?
He must hold some sort of record for sheer number of books written on military hardware.17/08/2021 at 17:26 #160628Not Connard SageParticipant
At least. He was certainly prolific back in the day.
