David Westwood of Military Library Research Service Ltd
Whilst many of our speakers are "home grown", occasionally we are able to bring in an "outside expert" to deliver a talk & as these speakers usually come from further afield, it is only fair that we contribute to their expenses; in addition to paying for the hire of the room, this is what your attendance & membership fees pay for.
We were delighted, therefore, when Ros Westwood, the widow of David Westwood of Military Library Research Service Ltd (known by many as simply "MLRS Books") generously offered us the remaining books in his collection to sell in order to raise funds to pay towards speaker expenses. Some of these books are the MLRS reprints of out of print books that the company is famous for, but, equally, many are originals from David's personal collection.
As a general guide, the books are being listed & sold at 30% of their Amazon sales price. So, thank you, Ros, for this wonderful gesture. At our usual Christmas party, we will be raising a glass of wine in David's memory.
Whilst MLRS are no longer producing printed copies of their books (or CD/DVDs), they are all still running their on demand download service (payment is via PayPal) allowing historians the opportunity to access a long out of print book, pamphlet, Divisional history or other document. For a full list of the downloads, the MLRS website is available here: https://www.mlrsbooks.co.uk/ there are some fascinating items available. For an updated list of the books that we still have available, please contact us.
