"2 used from £278.67"
Ouch :)
Good typo though, wondering where the feral apostrophe belongs though.

The book is now out.
My copy popped through the letterbox today, quite nice to see the new photographs and updates.
Page 141 has a new photo of the wheelbarrow carrier during a real 321 EoD operation in South Armagh for instance.
Can confirm price is £25. Get your orders in soonest!

Just wondering - is that Smiths remaining stock of the original soft-back they are selling off cheap - still excellent value :wink:

Possibly MJC can advise & if the latest issue with a little more content is better value :?:

I got the same message! Not in stock at the publishers until Friday. I ordered my copy from Veloce Publishing.

It's being sent out Friday.

Cancelled Smiths as they were quoting up to 2 weeks!

I'll be interested to see if Smiths keep the old pricing when it's back in public domain????? :roll:

Do not see why they should, as the new edition has a new price and ISBN number? Frankly if you really want a copy I suggest you get it now, as stocks will not last indefinitely.

Hi,
Just to let people know...

It looks like someone's clearing out their old stock on ebay.... Item 400150836747 and they've got 5 for sale (last time I checked)

Must be the 1st edition :-) and for £17.49 and with postage you get it for just under 20 quid... Nice!!
