Like many people I have spent a good amount of time looking at microfilm rolls to verify QSAs and KSAs.

In their next sale, Noble Numismatics have a few of these rolls and the reader for sale at an estimate of £75.

It is only a partial set of rolls and they don't say which rolls are included.

MICROFILM PROJECTOR, 35mm, by Bell & Howell, in original case; Boer War microfilm, Nominal Rolls WO 100 Series (25), in an aluminium case; together with a Haminex Mini projector and a Magnon II super 8 film Editor/viewer. With reference catalogue for film, very good. (4)

David...…

I still have some old Microfilm histories of British Regiments from a book called In Search of a Forlorn Hope and some early newspapers but no reader.. Have to go to a local Genealogical Society to use one of theirs when I want something...…

I remember a researcher who had at one time a complete set but I am damned if I could remember her name...…

Hello Mike,

Are you perhaps thinking of Winnifred Scott ??

Fred had an almost complete set of microfilm copies of WO100 in respect of the QSA/KSA, which was subject to omission and then, of course, there would always be the risk of error in transcription,

You're reminding me of those typed verification sheets we used to receive. I must see if I still have one of those.
