Men's Great Western Railway Logo T-Shirt Bottle Green, Large
Men's Great Western Railway Logo T-Shirt Bottle Green, Large
Offered by Two Red Dogs Pembrokeshire
Price: £16.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Good T-shirt for all GWR fans!, 29 Sept. 2014
Good quality T-shirt of medium-weight fabric manufactured by Gildan. The GWR logo is a transfer with a smooth feel, but has stood up well to several machine washes so far. The bottle-green shirt seems the perfect colour match for the GWR insignia. This T-shirt should be a welcome addition to the wardrobe of any Great Western Railway enthusiast.

Mens New Scape Brown Faux Leather Lace Up Leisure Trainer Casual Loafers Shoes
Offered by Jenny-Wren Footwear

5.0 out of 5 stars Great-looking and comfortable shoes!, 29 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great pair of shoes. Soft, faux-leather uppers look smart and seem impervious to moisture. Rugged, contoured firm rubber sole with trainer-like tread. These loafers have all the comfort of a good pair of trainers, but also have quite a formal appearance should the dress code require it. I ordered size 9 and the fit was perfect. Highly recommended!


Flying Scotsman Mantel Clock with Replica Model
Flying Scotsman Mantel Clock with Replica Model
Offered by The Bradford Exchange UK
Price: £67.96

4.0 out of 5 stars A great clock for all steam enthusiasts!, 29 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delightful, eye-catching timepiece inside a smart glass dome. The clock face resembles the smokebox door of a steam locomotive. The two miniature models of 'Flying Scotsman' at the base of the clock revolve every 6 seconds and provide a great deal of visual interest. My only slight criticism is that the revolving apparatus is driven by a motor, rather than a spring mechanism. As such, there is a slight whirr and clunk audible during each cycle. However, overall I'm very pleased with the quality of the item and would recommend it as a special gift for all steam enthusiasts!

JETech® APPLE CERTIFIED USB Sync and Charging Cable for iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 3G/3GS, iPad 1/2/3, iPod 3.2 Feet (White)
Offered by JEDirect UK
Price: £5.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in charge!, 22 Aug. 2014
iPad charging cable with USB plug to fit any USB port or the charging wall plug (not included). This product is of high quality and the flex is of a flat shape that I think may prove more durable than the usual cylindrical shape. A perfect replacement for the original cable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite on target..., 22 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book charts the rise of Gareth Bale from youth player to the brink of his move to Real Madrid. I'd hoped that there would be some deeper insights based on the author's own interviews with Gareth and his family / friends, but unfortunately this was not the case. Instead, the vast majority of the material is sourced from match reports and other excerpts from interviews given to the sporting media. The detail of certain match summaries will be of interest and celebration to fans of Spurs and the Welsh national team. Despite the obvious emphasis of this biography, I did find the author's comparisons with Ryan Giggs' career / background quite insightful.The book follows a largely chronological pattern, but contains very little information on Gareth's early childhood and nothing beyond his agreed move to the Bernabeu. It seems as if the book initially went to press in late 2011; certainly the latter few chapters read as a very sketchy, hastily-composed post-script. Several typos aside, this is a light, readable summary of Gareth's footballing career at Southampton and Spurs. I would have liked a greater number of picture illustrations than are included. Following his first season as a 'Galactico' and his exploits at the Champions League Final earlier this year, I expect more recent 'Bale' publications would now be preferred.

Price: £4.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic that never runs out of steam(!), 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having watched the film as a boy, it has been wonderful to now share the experience with my own children. They enjoyed it so much that they have since read the book and are looking forward to a trip to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, the actual location where the film was shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic reading for the younger viewers of the World Cup, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A detailed and highly-informative guide to the tournament, the participating teams and their star players. My 10-year-old son has had this book open for every game he's seen so far! The perfect buy for any younger football fan 9-12 years old!

5.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: Highly addictive!, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A simple, yet brilliant electronic stop-the-light game that is a real test of skill, hand-eye coordination and the ability to keep calm under pressure. Originally bought for my children, I must confess I've played on it more than they have! Aiming to achieve the 'High Score' on the solo setting is great when playing by yourself. The 'pass-it' / multiplayer setting is a non-scoring elimination round which is great for a tournament amongst family / friends. Highly recommended, but also highly addictive!

5.0 out of 5 stars RIP, Rik Mayall, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this DVD set to re-experience this comedy classic of my teenage years. Rik Mayall's tragic death came only a few weeks after my purchase. From watching his Young Ones performances again, it's easy to see how great a loss Rik Mayall is to the entertainment industry. However, at least the legacy of his comic genius will live on for many years to come. Rest in peace, Rik.

The Bones Beneath (Tom Thorne Novels)
The Bones Beneath (Tom Thorne Novels)
by Mark Billingham
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, tense read., 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fans of Mark Billingham's other books will instantly recognise the dark suspense that the author skillfully creates. In Stuart Nicklin, who makes a return in this novel, there is both extreme, sadistic cruelty as well as masterful deceit and cunning. Without compromising the storyline, I felt this publication ought to have been at least a hundred or so pages longer, as there is huge potential for yet further twists in this particular tale. Perhaps that's for the next installment...
