Andrew.

Did the 'usual avenues' include GH Smith & Son? If not please try the link here as they reprint Gunfire.

GH Smith & Son

Click on the Gunfire 'icon' and Alf Peacocks contact details are also at the end of the page.

Good luck.

No idea how many but some were fascinating, others heavy on the editors particular opinions and views. He could extremely stroppy if you dared to disagree with his opinions.

According to his obituary, he was editing 'volume' 59 at the time of his death.

Thanks for that Paul.

I had about 5 of my own, however I managed to pick up from EBay, issues 1 to 51 with about 5 missing from the set.

I could not believe I picked all this up and none else bid for them and they are in good condition. At a really good price.

Hello,

Just to revive this topic for a moment.

Does anybody know what happened to A.J. Peacock's collection?

I am trying to research some history of SSA13, FAU and there is an article in issue 58 of Gunfire called Hutchison, SSA13, FAU which is snippets from the diaries of the aforementioned Hutchinson and it says that they were"held at York" presumably by Peacock.

I am also interested in getting hold of Gunfire no 10 which has an article about Laurence Rowntree ( of the chocolates ) who also served in the unit.

Dave.
