    I have put together a listing of books relating to the history Black Watch, biographies, books by serving & former members of the Regiment etc. Right now I have 173 books on the list. Send me a PM if you're interested in a copy of the list. I'm always searching for new titles to add to the list. I recently purchased a book, on the Victoria Cross from the UK, cost of book 20. pounds; postage 35. pounds. Postage is CRAZY.

    THEY ARE NOW!!! I've not heard of these. My list covers books about the Regiment; books written by members of the Regiment and other with a fair amount of history of the Regiment such as those on battles etc. I've collected books all of my life; once had every book ever published on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police which I sold for a crazy amount of money. I have nearly 600 books on the Victoria Cross including many autographed by various VC's. I've had them up for sale but not much interest. My Black Watch collection is small but much read. Thanks for the new titles.

    Thank you SIR! The list grows My daughter who lives in Birmingham has now talked me into getting a Kindle so I can read those which are so expensive to buy. Keep the list growing Ron, I appreciate your assistance.
