    Well I dunno, maybe my dog bit the postie or something.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    I remember the time that my brother wrote a letter to a friend in Australiaicon and left it out for another family member to take to the Post Office to send it air-mail to Australia. The family member totally misunderstood my brother's request, didn't read the address on the envelope, stuck a UKicon 2nd class stamp and promptly posted it in a "pillar box". I thought that it was hilarious but my brother didn't because he felt that he needed to rewrite the letter and send it again. The funniest part was that the letter actually arrived in Australia, at it's intended destination, several months later, still with it's UK 2nd class stamp. It was quite a few years ago but hats off to Royal Mail for getting the letter to Australia on a second class stamp, even if it did take several months.

    I like the way you think

    It is a pity that due to BEE we cannot get you in as a consultant. A lot of SAPO issues could have been solved.
    Not to worry, the future residents of Africa will take the matter in hand I'm sure.
    “There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.”

    Edward Bernays, 1928

    Much changes, much remains the same.
