Found 22nd Jul 2008
Hi all. After weeks reading various posts and grabbing deals I have finally become a member.
I am seeking a copy of the Times newspaper dated Saturday 12/07/08. A member of my family is pictured in this addition whilst serving in Iraq.
I have contacted the Times directly via mail and they supplied me with a web address to purchase the paper £8.99 P&P.
Before I purchase, would anybody have a copy tucked away? Of course I will pay for postage.

Sorry can't help you but Welcome to the Forums. :thumbsup:

Hope someone can help you get a copy.

have you been to any newsagents as they only return the front paper name and might still have the rest of the paper in their refuse. or you could always camp outside the local recycle facilities asking people if they have one

welcome!! cant you just buy the pic? usually papers sell them dont they?

Do you have reference to story? Is the story/image available online?

timesonline.co.uk/tol…ws/

check with your local library

Thank you all for a speedy response:)
It seems the Times online papers are only viewable for two weeks.
Sorry to say but I do not know what the article reference was. All that I have seen is almost a full page picture torn out of the paper and shown to us.
I will try our local library.

try google news with what the story is about?

Sorry not got a clue. I will try and find out.
The photo in question contains half a dozen troops taking a well needed rest, whilst standing in the forefront in my nephew.

if its two weeks thats only 10days ago isnt it??

I can go check the recycling in the woodshed for you, but suspect it's gone already. What section/page will it be in?
