Not sure if I'm helping or hindering our cause with this, but just checked and a pair of James Blunt tickets in Germany is 102 euros, with no meet and greet and VIPery, and of course, no money to Forces charities :D

I'm ahead of you - I put it on Sappers on Monday. They claim not to be very interested, but the bids are doing quite nicely! I have a feeling this is going to be one which goes beserk in the last five minutes before noon BST on Sunday....

LYING BARSTEWARDS! I have the Zulu Print on my wall in Sarajevo (framed by my Wife for my birthday a few years ago :wink: as she was a Doctor in Sarajevo throughout the War it is the only piece of Military Memorabilia I am allowed anywhere in the house! 'for now'!) ALL Sappers would want the same on their walls especially a Signed by Michael Caine Zulu Poster!!!

Would it be worth advertising it on a James Blunt forum? I don't think we have to many James Blunt fans on ARRSE.
With the bidding currently at 501 quid and 48 bids I reckon you be wrong, perhaps a case of wishing the situation rather than seeing it..

Either way though its a good point, a quick google on jame blunt+forums gives us 78000 users here: http://forum.jamesblunt.com/index.php and more here http://www.virginradio.co.uk/music/artists/james_blunt/fans/thread/

that could be alerted...

sadly run out of time.

Good thinking. I've now put it on the James Blunt forum Mr Happy suggested.

Whilst on there, I gleaned that there's one ever one meet and greet per concert, so no wonder the bids are sky-rocketing

James Blunt tickets + meet & greet just went for £621, and the signed Zulu poster closed at £530.

We raised well over £3000, and there's still a couple of auction items on there.
