    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

    Jerry sorry i haven't come back to this sooner , i must admit this photo doesn't leave me with the feeling that it's original , the photo itself looks like the shade / quality / paper of the print is not correct and the rear suggests faked black album residue which is the fakers latest trick , as it was a freebie no loss mate but in our war against the fakers it would be good if you can carry out a blacklight test on it ?

    cheers

    No worries Paul if it is wrong, I had thought that might be the case. I don't have a blacklight so I cant check it.
