Hello

I hope I am not doing wrong, apologies if so.

I have posted this also on SUGGESTIONS.

My gt Grandad was a STEAM ENGINE DRIVER, WILLIAM HAGLAND born 1872, He was on a Birthday card with the Engine SILVER LINK,, Gt Northern.
ANY IDEA WHERE I CAN TRACE ONE TO PURCHASE, Please ?

Thank you, Dave dopeydoc

I found an image of the reverse side of that card but the addy was massive. It wrecked the size of the fields on here so am sending by pm.

I think Dave said on the other thread that he has a copy of the cig card but wants to trace the birthday card, In case people haven't read it.

Oh Roy, leave it be, Dave apologised for that. It is not hurting.
