I have a copy of the "booklet" and just thought you should be aware that it is a very slight offering. It consists of two A4 sheets of light card stapled together, giving a cover and four pages of text (103 lines). The content is similarly "thin".

My copy and the one I was thinking of is slightly different the size is 8" x 6" and has 34 pages including B/W and Color Photos...... Also a couple of pages on the Queen Mary's WW1 tin......

Thanks Neville.
I have seen some sold prices when I searched for it and they went for some hefty fees.
Still I would like to read it so I will keep a look out.

Very interesting Mike. My flimsy pamphlet has the exact same tin on the cover, with the grey Gentleman in Khaki background, but is only four pages long. Printed in South Africa in 2004 by the Rhodes Book Company.

From Today's Spink auction



Described as: South Africa 1900 Queen Victoria Christmas tin, chocolate present but broken, a little rubbing to tin, very fine and a good survivor
