    This is the next item from our 2006 Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. All money received from these auctions will go directly to the RBL. Last year we raised over £1000 and we're trying to make a substantial improvement on that this year.

    There are three separate auctions each for a signed print on a military theme. These have been kindly donated by Nick Pringle.

    Once again these auctions will run until 1100 on November the 11th. Bids can be on here, by PM to me or via email to charity@arrse.co.uk.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    Thank you very much to everyone who took part but I hereby declare Armchair_Jihad the winner of this auction. Thanks a lot for your extremely generous bids on almost everything it would appear!

    I'd be grateful if you could drop us a line at charity@arrse.co.uk. We'd prefer payment by paypal (charity@arrse.co.uk) but can also take direct bank transfer.

    A quick update on the pictures. Armchair_Jihad kindly offered for them to be displayed at RCDM. I understand that they have arrived, and are being framed prior to hanging. They will be displayed in Alexandra Block, which is where the hospital welfare office is located, together with accommodation for the families of seriously ill service personnel. There is also transit accommodation for patients who don't require a hospital bed. The block features regularly in VIP visitors itineraries, so I'm trying to arrange for a plaque mentioning ARRSE.

    I'm told that the pictures are very impressive 'in the flesh'. As soon as they are in situ I will arrange for a picture to be posted in the Gallery.
