    We (MLRS Books) are proud to announce that we are about to offer Col Mike Young's exceptional history of the ASC in World War I.
    This is the second enlarged edition, and has 406 pages of the most detailed account of the Corps in its first major war. The first edition was highly praised for it scholarship and detail, and this edition has a further 100 photographs of vehicles and equipment added recently by the author.
    The volume is a reprint of the first edition with the extra photographs, and includes all tables.
    This is simply the best history of the Corps during the First War, and copies are limited.
    Price £45.00, but orders received by Sunday night 2359 7 October 2012 will attract a discount of £5.00.
    Email us at to reserve a copy and we will apply the discount up to the deadline.
  2. Me (BPS66) a current member of the arrse fraternity, is proud to announce that I couldn't give a flying ****. I have an enlarged edition but it is not from staring at pages and pages of Trog Porn.

    £45 will get me 10 portions of fish and chips or a Friar Tuck round the back of the boozer with handsome Tracy and her mate Borisina

    Please don't reserve me a copy and don't email me.
  3. 45 quid for the history of Ally Slopers Commandos? Errrr no.
  4. Pull up a Sand Bag and BPS666, this may not be your cup of tea and maybe not even your corps, but why find the need to give it shit... I am sure these guys deserve to have their history remembered with a book. The 1st World War wasn't just for the infantry, and if it was not for these guys no bullets or rations would of made it to the front. Please have a bit of respect, if you are not interested don't bother commenting.

    I am sure these guys would appreciate it........

  6. Why the Faux outrage?

    Will you be so defensive over my soliciting for business on the RLC thread? I intend to sell a book about 'wanking off' in the various shithouses I have used on Operational tours. It will be full of pictures and everything. It's ok though because I will slap a capbadge from the Bengal Ordnance Department on it to make it relevant to the forum.

    If anyone slags off my business enterprise I fully expect some keyboard warriors to instantly leap to my defence and post pictures of headstones from the Indian Mutiny for good measure.

    Some twats on here treat every thread as if it were the real live noticeboard in the real life NAAFI (where you can flog all sorts of shit).
  7. 45 quid for a book, outrageous!!!
  8. Mines going for £14.99 - I am doing a special introductory gimmick where I will take it into a bog of your choice and glue together pages of your choice (with population paste) for a small fee of 27 british pence. It's an absolute bargain I tells ya..........
  9. Can you laminate each page for a few quid more??
  10. I have the book, to all our critics, it is absolutely superb and well worth the money. You may call me names but as I am actually interested, money well spent...
