I would hold on, unless you need the money, which I doubt.

Cool.. was wondering did your mum glue or tape the articles into the scrapbook? Must be a thick scrapbook, how many pages is it or what are the dimensions? Would it be possible to see some scans/photos of it? Would be nice to see the cover and a couple of the inside pages :) Maybe I could make you a better offer than you were given before :) thanks.. Len

hi Len

 

the book is 33cms x23cms and is very thick it weighs in at 2,5kgs - my mum used selotape and some of the articles have come loose with age but are all still in great shape and are all there, there really are a huge amount of articles. the photos are a bit large and i dont have a resizer so if you give me your email i will send them directly to you?

Hi Nubbi,

 

There are some serious ex-Rhodies belonging to the M.OT.H.S. in Polokwane , that might be interested. I remember them from my time there.

I was there as I said and I knew nothing about the incident until about a week before the launch and it was very interesting. He did sign books for those that bought a copy.
