Default Help with a purchase from South Africa

Hello,

If I may ask, could someone living in South Africa assist me with an online auction purchase that ends tomorrow evening, please?

I have not yet bid on the item, which is a pair of cloth shoulder titles; however, the seller doesn't post items overseas but is willing to send the titles to an address in SA – should I successfully win them. Thus, this deed would further entail forwarding the titles to me in the UK.

Of course, I would pay for the postage or any other expenses incurred on my behalf. If you can help would you PM me.

Best,

Marcus

Happy to hear it and once again the kindness of the members of this forum. Seems to be more of a brotherhood to me.

Hope you win the titles,

Terry

Hello Roy and Terry,

Thanks, guys. I am pleased to announce that I won the slip-on-shoulder titles.

And it was all made possible thanks to Alex Rice, who truly couldn't have been more obliging.

Best,

Marcus
