“Soldiers of the Queen”

I have the very early editions of the Victorian Military Society’s “Soldiers of the Queen” to offer.
These comprise Editions 1 to 20 with only number 16 missing, and eighteen more editions running almost complete to number 40.

I am open to cash offers, and suggest that, as these are a weighty set, they should be “collect only”, from south Lincolnshire.
I will hold them for two weeks, after which they will go for recycling.

Grumpy, just a thought: as the British Library only have from No. 60 (June 1990) onward, would you consider passing your collection onto them?

Brilliant idea, good luck Grumpy.

I had a large run of SOTQ that I couldn't keep, couldn't sell for 50p an issue. Thankfully I found a home for them - for free. Making money wasn't the object, just happy to preserve such excellent writing.

Not too sure about excellent writing: I did a lot of it!
