Found this as a link from another forum; it's a website selling scanned pdf files of out-of-print Imperial regimental histories.

Looks like a goldmine. Five euro seems like a bargain. But is it too good to be true?

Anyone know anything about this website/product?

Hardy, thanks for the confirmation. I believed it to be true, but wanted to be sure. This will prove to be invaluable to my Imperial artillery project! :jumping:

Rick;

I connected with Patrick when he was just starting out; advised him to scan Sturm=Bataillon Nr. 5 (Rohr), and he later told me it was his best seller. Several years ago he was still grinding thru university. A nice fellow and a great service, especially in the US where these unit histories are very hard to come by.

I have to cruise thru his listings again to see if I need anything that he has added recently. Even several years ago these unit histories often or usually cost over $100, and shipping and the possible loss in the mails is a headache. Plus storage; I have walls of groaning bookshelves. (My wife, the Super=Librarian, rents an apartment from me for her killer cat, her weight-lifting equipment, but mostly for 8000 books she can't fit in my house.)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
