JUMBO Pop-up Garden Bag 60cm x 72cm
JUMBO Pop-up Garden Bag 60cm x 72cm
Offered by CharliesDirect
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The gardners friend!, 27 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't be misled by the dimensions quoted, the Jumbo bag, holds quite a capacity, depending on your needs, soil/terf for example could prove stressful to the fabric in spit of its sound structure, on the other hand, the additional capacity is ideal for Autumn clean-up of leaves, or collection of foliage, no more having someone to keep a bin bag open for you, this bag is self supportive, so long as you hook it on a fence on a windy day : would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting study?, 11 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting study, easy to follow, with move by move analysis of the game, as played, "late nineteenth / early twentieth century," sufficient to satisfy the demands of the average student of chess, in an easy to understand format, would recommend.

Jutland 1916 - Clash of Dreadnoughts (Osprey Military Campaign): The Last Great Clash of Fleets
by Charles London
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point, 11 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read various accounts covering the "Battle of Jutland" I found this condensed version quite easy to read, and certainly well illustrated with both maps & photographs. It covers events with sufficient detail to satisfy the average student/reader including a biographical outline of the various commanding officers. I thought it got straight to the point, and was good value for money...would recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Total confusion, 11 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found this book difficult to get into, going over the politics of the various bureau's repeatedly with little point of direction. Having struggled through 8% of the text, I deleted it from the kindle (!)

5.0 out of 5 stars and good value, so much so, 9 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received order well packed, although it took a while in transit, the supplier kept me fully informed, and maintained their schedule. I found the model to be quite detailed, well made, and good value, so much so, that I made a second purchase.
I have no problems with recommending this product or supplier

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very much an analysis of the selection process of the u-boat service covering the period 1939/45 and how the system was modified as the war progressed.
I found it quite heavy to digest, and only of moderate interest, if however your interests fall into this area of research, then this book is quite detailed and full of data.
Outside of this category, I would describe it as of limited interest to the casual reader...Therefore i found the price was a little on the hihg side.

5.0 out of 5 stars yes I would recommend this publication, 13 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is unusual in so nuch that it covers an aspect of German submarine warfare in the Arctic regions during ww.2 I found it to be a detailed and informative account of the harsh and hostile conflict that confronted the various factions, be it German, Russian, and British involved in convoy activities in this the most inhospitable of environments. A little slow in places even repetitious at times, but a "must read" for anyone seriously interested in a comprehensive insight into German naval history, yes I would recommend this publication.

Acctim 74436 Durham Wall Clock, Mahogany
Price: £47.00

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 28 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Order was promptly processed, well packed, quite attractive in appearance, though I feel over priced, where it fell short, and hence the low rating, was the fact that the second pointer kept sticking at 25 past the hour, and therefore had to be returned! The returns procedure was excellent, at no cost to myself. I reordered a more reliable, and well known make, with complete satisfaction, but in spite of its attractive appearance, I would not recommend this product.

3.0 out of 5 stars u-boat warfare, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An average account of u-boat warfare during WW2. seen through the eyes of a none commissioned radio officer (German) yes it is interesting, though not a classic, but would still recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars TV.at its very best., 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Happy Valley [DVD] (DVD)
Having recently been on television, just had to have this gripping thriller, see Sarah Lancashire at her outstanding best, out to avenge the loss of her daughter, following a brutal assault which led to her suicide. You are on the edge of your sofa all the way through...strongly, strongly, recommended
