Hi Kenneth
I had a look at 40367 HLI. I think i need to get a couple of days off and go to the Carnegie Library in Ayr and the Dick institute in kilmarnock and have a good look through the newspapers. 2 days wont be near enough......2 weeks would be closer.
Im off to France in 2 weeks so Ill post see if anyone requires any photos etc.
So it will be mid May before I can get time off.

West Kilbride memorial is my next project...........all hands on deck Smile

Thanks for your reply Kenneth

Regards
James
