    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi Paul, thanks for the link. I was hoping to find some new info there, but I think I could actually add to it. The early 5 part set shown is the SN 38. I have two sets of this in my collection. The SN 42 came in two types as well which is not mentioned.

    Cheers, Ade.
