You can see copies on Amazon or Fishpond but you can't buy them so I don't know how much a copy is.

The publishers do wedding stationery rather than books so I don't know if you can even purchase it directly from them?

Nice to see the statue at Bonar Bridge gracing the cover. I'm a bit disappointed in the title though. How many times has "Lest We Forget" been used for war memorial booklets? With a booklet covering all the war memorials of the highlands there would have been other inscriptions she could have used.

Lest We Forget is very memorable and will give plenty of returns in search engines.

The challenge for anyone using it is to differentiate their 'product' from the rest.
