Best post of the year award - results

This year we instituted a prize for the best post of the year. Hopefully it isn't premature (if it is, I'll lose a second bottle of wine !), but at the Convention we awarded it to shanedwyer for his 'I may be a delicate-looking man ...' post. Second time he's won in a row. Not bad, S; not bad at all...

Re: To the Devil.. A Daughter - restored and released on Blu Ray

Well I guess he gets the best post award AND the worst post award then, unless anyone has any other ideas.

Not a bad record ... and how like shane d to be controversial ... I'm sure he would be more than a little disappointed if you actually agreed with him :D !

See you both at the Convention ...

Ah, but the modern musketeers were deadly until well into advanced old age, and I am sure you two will be the same. But best perhaps to reserve your energies for the fight against the forces of evil ... or for making sure you have a d*** good time like the Duke and his companions far into old age .....

PS. I note that if you all agree with my 'best post' nomination, shanedwyer will have won it twice in the last three years. That is, unless someone pips him to the post in the last few months of the year (hint). His wonderful winning post for 2015 can be found at http://library.denniswheatley.info/v...

Careful there D. I may be a delicate-looking man, with slender, fragile hands and greying hair, but I have no trace of weakness... Like everyone else, SD, I have always been struck by your uncanny resemblance to the great man, and the other D should indeed be careful who he picks a fight with. It s...

I'm sure you can make an educated guess, given your not inconsiderable sleuthing skills :-) If you like, I'll arrange for its owner to bring it to the Convention. Talking of which, is there anything else anyone would particularly like to see in the 'travelling Museum' this year ? Given it's out tent...

In contrast, Sir Christopher Lee's copy of 'The Devil And All His Works', also inscribed by DW, was recently sold by booksellers Peter Harrington for £325.

Quite a price difference !

Best wishes !

Dear Luke, I don't know if it will help you with your researches, but have you seen the illustrated postcard of Goring sent to DW at that time, and which is the first exhibit in this site's 'Virtual Museum' Room on World War One ?

Chris Josiffe gave a first class lecture, illustrated with Powerpoint slides. His talk lasted about an hour followed by questions, and was delivered to a packed audience - although surprisingly I didn't see any familiar faces in the room. Chris started by talking about RA's acquaintance / friendship...
