A booklet of fund raising stamps dating from 1942.
They were trying to raise 150,000 guineas and a full booklet like this contributed half a guines or 10s6d. I have to say I have issues with this. Getting children to raise their funds off relatives and friends, saying that 'our religion is better than yours' missionary work, and all whilst a major war is n progress.

You can view them by right clicking each one then opening the images in another window.

These are on my own personal webspace. Works for other images here, and my websites

Steve, I don't think that is always the case. I've noticed that some other recent posts from you have the same issue. They may work for you because you have direct access to your webspace.

Interesting stamps for sure. I agree that Missionary work wasn't always a good thing.

I have the same access to my personal web space that everybody else has - through a wwww address. People out there do not have problems accessing my webpages, and you can access the images using the direct web address. So I suspect it is a Forum setting. I can see the images because I posted them.
Why, I wonder, has no-one told me before that they could not see my images on the Forum.

Usually when a global setting is changed by the forum software makers I get a notification, but I haven't seen anything to that effect.

I have also had problems seeing other forum posts without having to click on the box and open in another window so it isn't just Steve's posts that are affected.

I will try to get to the bottom of it.

It may be a browser thing that is causing this
I use Firefox and can see the images. what about others?

Its been a weird day...

I complain via PM about the lack of PM service - privately - and miraculously PMs are back...

I hope this applies to everyone now, hopefully problem averted.
