Title The Powder Flask Book by Ray Riling
Nationality American
Period 1992

Published by R&R Books, Livonia, NY, USA, 1993 (originally published 1953), hardback, 495 pages (29 x 23 cm). This is the powder flask 'bible' - you cannot collect powder flasks without a copy in your library. As far as I know, it is the only serious book that has ever encompassed the whole of this vast subject and it is copiously illustrated.

Condition: the previous owner's inscription is written in black biro on the fly leaf, together with place of purchase and date (Arms Fair, 1998); two small tears to dust wrapper; otherwise a good, clean copy.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.

I collected my iron cross this am from the sorting office. Thank you for the medal; as before it's a very nice one. Thank you for your prompt service and I look forward to purchasing more in the future from you and your wonderful site.
