Tim, could you ask the buyer to provide a copy for the 1CACR archive?
Happy to pay for that.

Cheers,

Hi

Now sold. Thanks to the buyer.

Hanno, I'm afraid I don't have the capacity to scan this booklet and since retirement, no real access to a copier.

I hope the Tims can help out.

regards
Darrell

You clearly have the ability to take photographs, though Just photograph each page as large and as straight as you can. Laying a sheet of slightly frosted glass over it will make this easier in case of a book you can’t take the pages out of, but is not absolutely necessary.

Also, if you have an iPhone or iPad, it probably has a built-in document scanner that will automatically straighten the image and can export the scans as a PDF file — see Apple’s help pages.

I am purchasing this for a RAM owner in the UK.

I will ask him if he can arrange a scan and share with the wider community via Hanno.
