Legends of Maine Road by Simon Smith.


Legends of Maine Road by Simon Smith.

A true investment for any football supporter of any age, especially for City fans! Editions like these tend to increase in value once they are sold out. The publisher has gone to great lengths obtaining all of the signatures of the players, each of which is signed in pencil to avoid any chance of fading. Each edition has been signed individually and appears on the margin around the image (not shown on our main picture). It portrays the remarkable history of one of the great club sides of the late 60s and early 70s. It portrays 36 great players throughout Manchester Citys long and successful history and features no fewer than 20 of those signatures including Mike Summerbee, Roy Clarke, Joe Royle, Joe Corrigan and Francis Lee. Players and staff come and go but their contribution is never forgotten.
AMAZING VALUE! - The value of the signatures on this item is in excess of the price of the print itself!

On the 11th January 1879, a British Force under the command of Lord Chelmsford crossed the Buffalo River into Zululand.  A small garrison was left at Rorkes Drift.  The force consisted of 1600 British troops, mainly from the 1st and 2nd Battalions 24th Regiment, and 2500 native soldiers.  A tented camp was established at Isandhlwana Hill.  At 4am on the morning of 22nd January, Lord Chelmsford took half his force to reconnoitre to southeast in search of main Zulu army.  Just after 8am a force of 25000 Zulu warriors attacked the remainder of the force in the camp.  Surprised, outnumbered by more than six to one, in a position offering little defence, the defenders were soon overpowered and a dreadful slaughter ensued.  A few men escaped and re-crossed the Buffalo River to safety.  Victoria Crosses were awarded to Lieutenants Melvill and Coghill, who saved the Queens Colour of the 1st/24th and to Private Wassell, 90th Foot, who saved a comrade while escaping across the Buffalo River. Includes 10 printed remarques of main characters at the battle, 5 down each side.

The recovery of LCpl Edwards Warrior, Gonji Vakuf, Bosnia, 13th January 1993.  On 13th January 1993 there was severe fighting in the town of Gornji Vakuf, when a column of armoured vehicles of B Company, 1st Battalion The 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment arrived.  Lance Corporal Edwards was the driver of a Warrior, call sign Two One.  His driver's hatch was open, and as he crossed the bridge over the river a sniper shot him.  His Warrior veered towards the left and came to a halt.  Inside the vehicle, the soldiers were unable to contact the driver.  An MRRV (Mechanized Repair and Recovery Vehicle) drove forward in front of the Warrior.  Under intense small arms fire, Corporal Bancroft emerged from his hatch and clambered across the roof of his vehicle, and down onto the ground to attach a towbar to the Warrior.  The Warrior was recovered, with the mortally wounded driver and the soldiers still inside it.  Shortly afterwards, when I was accompanying a patrol in two Warriors, I visited this spot.  We dismounted and I was able to sketch the buildings and the damaged railings of the bridge.  Lance Corporal Edwards was attached to The Cheshires from 1st Battalion The Royal Welch Fusiliers.  A memorial plaque was later erected to his memory beside the bridge.
