    PRT, while I was working in Tripoli last week, I was shown around a Rebel storage yard where items taken from Colonel Gadaffi's Bab Al Aziz were being stored.

    By way of thanks for the work my colleagues and I were doing, one of the rebels gave me one of Gadaffi's Tea-cups and Saucers (see photos attached). This is a very rare item that is likely to be worth a significant amount of money in the future, and to that end, I would be delighted to donate it as a Holidays For Heros auction item as long as a minimum reserve of £1000 is met.

    I'm afraid you didn't meet the reserve, Smudge, but thanks for your bid anyway. ;-)
     
  11. That's a shame. I was looking forwards to lovingly polish that cup day in day out.
