"ORDER YOUR BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT"
To mark the withdrawal of all British combat forces from Afghanistan at the end 2014 I am in the process of producing a Roll of Honour dedicated to the men and women in the Armed Forces who have been killed on operations in Afghanistan.. The Roll of Honour will be a high quality, landscape volume journal , A4 size with hard front and rear covers in faux leather. The volume will be laid out with an individual full colour photograph of each serviceman and servicewoman under the heading of their cap badge, in date order with a short biography of each man or woman.
I am placing an order for a first edition of 1000 volumes with the printers, at cost of £12,000. in order to get the project up and running I am starting taking orders. The price to purchasers for each volume will be £35, and all the profits above the cost of production and distribution will be divided between the following charities:
The ABF The Soldiers Charity
The RAF Benevolent Fund
The Royal Marines Charities (Go Commando)
SSAFA Forces Help(NI)
SSAFA Bereaved Forces Families
Falklands Chapel Trust Pangeborne
The response I have had so far from the many bereaved families, friends and comrades of those killed with whom I have been in contact has been very positive, and supportive of the project. Each volume can also be 'personalised' with a suitable inscription for an additional £3.75.
I have attached a sample page with this letter to illustrate the proposed layout for each page in the volume,The book will have over 200 high quality pages
If interested please contact me by email and have your name added to the list.You will be contacted with any updates.
The Book/Journal will be published in March 2015.when the last combat troops have left Afghanistan
