  5. But anyone can request to see it and it will be kept in an environment that will be kept safe and available for many generations to come. 'Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it' Winston Churchil1948 Pray God that those words resonate today
  6. See post #8 -SHEFFIELD ARCHIVES since it is part of our local history. And to your other question- the only thing stopping me from buying it myself is because I don't have the money to buy it - otherwise I would !
  7. Or be put in the Sheffield Archives . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ww1-roll-of-honour/273765873147?hash=item3fbdb7b5fb:g:BSEAAOSwRcZcjmHU Maybe someone who does ebay could suggest this to the vendor ?
