Provenance of the Ashtray

Thank you for all your bids, & very special thanks to Jonathan Shirley for his generous winning bid of £205.00, donated in full to Baby Lifeline

Jonathan has the last word

" I really enjoyed meeting you both on Monday, it would have been great to chat for longer but things were against us. The Ashtray is proudly displayed in our kitchen & my children are now of the opinion I am completely crackers! I enjoyed your reminiscences about the fort based stations particularly as they were my favourite listening as a young lad."
