Mike - an incredible find - and a valuable one from the historical and the financial sides.

Belfast was one of the later formal engagements - I thought Strathcona's had returned

to Canada before Belfast ? I remember you telling me once before that they actually

left later then I was thinking.

For it's age I don't think the condition is bad - no more then you would expect for it's age

and service. I'm sure it will have a prominent place in your collection. Mervyn
