  4. I am shamed to confess I am unfamiliar with this work, though obviously I know who Mr Weston is.

    is it the song? or a book? Or a serious Drum and Bass remix of both?
     
  5. ... checking ... wait out...


    book - may not be written by, but is signed by Simon Weston to "Chris"
     
  6. Ah well, in that case!

    £51. :)

    Best regards,

    Chris.
     
  7. sorry for being thick but is it already signed or will it be signed to the highest bidder?
     
  8. My understanding was that it had already been signed, but my name happens by a happy coincidence to coincide with that of the original dedication, hence my willingness to up the bid! :D
     
  9. Ok then as my name isnt Chris may I place a bid of 55 quid for the ticket :twisted:
     
  10. Confirmed - the book is already signed.
     
  11. You could always change it, for a good cause and all.
     
  12. I can now confirm that the book is ISBN 0952079305 I VOW TO THEE MY COUNTRY distributed by The Royal Star & Garter Home, Richmond.
    It is in A3 size hardback with dustcover. The signature from Simon is

    "To Chris Best Wishes Simon Weston"
     
  13. Am sure the wife would be dead chuffed that I changed my name just for a book (would be a laugh though)

    No will stick with the ticket for now

    Perchance mrs MS164's name is Chris - you could purchase the book for her to read while you are at the rugby :twisted:
