    Following the extremely generous £405 we raised from the "Million Bullets Auction", we've got another early entry for this year's Royal British Legion Charity Auction. As regulars on the site know, we hold an annual auction with stuff donated by site sponsors and all the proceeds go the RBL. Over the years this has got bigger and bigger with over 5k raised by your generosity last year.

    Author Michael Rushton (a regular ARRSEr) to has kindly donated three copies of both his books; Our Lady Ricky and Ricky the Early Years. These will be auctioned as pairs with the lucky winners also having their copies signed with the dedication of their choice.

    Bidding will be in increments of £2 starting at a fiver. To bid on a book simply type the book name and the amount you are bidding, i.e
    Book 3 - £102 (not a real bid!!!)

    Auction will run until 1900hrs on 29 Aug 08!

    Bid generously......

    Apologies wompingwillow, my mistake. Final tally:

    Payment can be via the following options:

    1. The RBL bemycharity account. Remember to use the Giftaid tick box if you are a UK tax payer.

    2. Pay by bank transfer (Bank of Scotland, 12-24-81, acct no 06488848, put RBL followed by your username as the reference).

    In both cases you'll need to send us an email (pse use this form) with the address you want it sending to.

    Once I've got everything I'll let Michael know and hopefully the books will be in the post shortly afterwards.
  13. Books will be in post same day, first class, signed, "Thank you & Best Wishes - Michael 'Ricky' Ruston, (Date) - If anyone would like n e thing esle (e.g. for a freind or relative) please let me know.

    Thank you everyone for your generousity - I am sure it will be appreciated by RBL
