Testimonials about the Tigers History Book November 05 2014

Just wanted to say that the book arrived safely for S yesterday (he has hardly put it down) and he was very pleased to see his name in print.  Thank you very much for all your help.

Yes, I’ve found the subscribers’ list, with me there. There’s obviously an Irishman at your end who decided to put them in order of date of receipt!  But it is a magnificent book and I shall treasure it for the rest of my life.

 I have received my book today and it looks amazing. Thank you very much. 

 Received and  ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED!!!!  Best 40 quid I have spent in ages!

 Thank you: it is a lovely book which has arrived safely here “Down Under” today.

 Book now received. Looks very good, well laid out. Looking forward to getting right into it in the dark winter nights. Certainly some good ‘memory joggers’ in there from what I have seen so far.

Thank you for the Tigers History Book which I have just received and which looks very good and will, I am sure, be a very interesting read.

 I've received my book and it's a true collector's item.  

 Thanks again for your help – This really is a great book.
