The SD Enthusiasts' Club Newsletter
  Volume 2 Issue 28                      Winter 2017

 Now in our Fourteenth year of publication.

From the Editor.

Your final Newsletter for 2017 is largely devoted to a description of the remarkable collection of memorabilia that was collected by the late Ernie Harmes. I think my readers will find it as interesting and fascinating as I have. We also have news of three surviving SD’s. It is pleasing to learn how the Company’s products are being preserved.
Brian Carpenter 1st December  2017.

Will correspondents please note that the editor reserves the right to shorten letters or e-mails submitted for publication, and to edit them to provide greater clarity. All reasonable steps will be taken to try to ensure that the meaning in the letter, or e-mail, remains unaltered. The editor can not accept responsibility for the accuracy of correspondent's memories, nor his own memories. Often we are looking back over many years, and our memories of an event may well vary. It would be appreciated if you would make it plain should you not wish your correspondence to be published for whatever reason.
