Hi Bert. I have been trying to buy your book Admiral Kit man, all for the shirt without success so if you can guide me or sell me one I would be pretty happy. Also, I was very impressed with your entry into the football kit business and performance and would be interested in meeting with you if possible. Back in 1970 I started buying fabrics from Peter Spall who operated in Essex then and Jimmy Greaves would appear in my first potocall (Jimmy lived next door to Peter) This year I also enjoyed amazing hospitality of Mr.Humphreys Man.Director of Umbro up in Wilmslow and my working life was set. I am still enjoying the factory work and the digital printing. I will be in England as from 2-6th August and if there was a possibility to meet you I would be very interested.
