    The latest bear auction starts here on Monday, folks.

    W/O Paderborn is a retired Cold War bear wearing a wooly pully (see previous auctions for pictures). http://www.arrse.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=125797.html

    He is very proud of his nephew, Pte Bastion, who, thanks to the generosity of an arrser, is wearing a UBACS.

    The auction will run from Monday to Sunday, and the winner will receive the bears by post as soon as the money reaches MDN's funds.

    Start emptying your coin jars!

    Needle and thread given impetus by such an offer.

    After a gruelling session with the cameras, the first photos are available.

    The two bears have been visiting the Nurburgring today, and have been posing with a very fast motor.

    Sorry, the Emperor is at home today - you can have the picture twice or not at all!

    Anyway, bidding starts tomorrow, from the £20 kindly offered by mac_uk.

    Thank you.

    Good morning everyone.

    The bears have spent an exciting evening wondering where their new home will be.

    Please be generous - MDN's Holiday fund always needs top-ups!

    Thank you.

    So, that's a joint bid of £100 plus postage for two bears to Texas from WarpSpasm and Saintstone?

    That's pretty amazing, chaps. Thank you!

    PS The offspring 'thinks he knows' where the remote is. I'll keep you posted.

    An early lunchtime BUMP.

    This morning the bears have been looking at medals from before even Paderborn's time.
