.....I will do the same, but I think the cheques were cashed before the 6 month expiry date ran out!

It does exist !!   I was reading a copy only last Saturday. Belonging to a friend in the Club over here, his copy arrived a short while ago.
Regarding delivery of stuff (and apologies for going off topic, but this may be relevant)
We here in Ireland (apart from the 6 counties), don't use postcodes (although I believe they are on the way). We depend on postmen/women who basically know everybody. And the mail rarely fails to arrive (specially bills !!)
I recently ordered a part from Cavalitto. I gave my home address, rather than my work. No sign of the parcel after a week, so I tried the tracking (UPS) number. It stated that they could not find my address, as it was not on the 'building register'. I never even knew something like that existed. Anyway, I contacted UPS by phone, and spoke to firstly a nice polite woman (who had a distinct 'eastern' tone to her voice, and who could not pronounce any one word of my name or my address. She informed me that they would be unable to deliver the package, as my address 'did not exist'. Despite me assuring her that it did (I was in it at the time), she transferred me to an equally polite man (mid European accent) who would let me change the delivery address, to my place of work (which was on this 'building register'). Delivery promised within 3 days.
It, at this stage would have been quicker for me to fly to Italy to pick up the part personally.
Anyways.....the following day I got a postcard....from UPS....informing me that they were sorry, but they could not deliver my package to my home address, and for me to contact them by phone. Obviously the postcard had been sent before I rang them re the tracking number.
I simply could not resist....so I rang them back, and asked to speak to a supervisor (a UK accent) and I asked him how was it possible, for UPS to send me a postcard to an address that did not exist, informing me that they could not deliver a package to the same address on the postcard (as it did not exist).
He apologised and ordered the possible excuse that the Irish Postal Service were simply better at knowing local addresses. So, I asked him, why didn't they simply post me the package, after all, the name of your company is The United Postal Service........at least he saw the funny side of it.

I had dealt with UPS only the once Kevin, it was an important letter to the USA.

They had obviously consulted the OED to ensure they got the meaning of the word ineptness exactly right and then made sure to put it into practice on each leg of its journey, its cost me a couple of hundred quid (20 yrs ago) but they compensated me reluctantly in the end after a letter to their CEO.

Anyways, good to see you exist in the real world if not the virtual!

PS Does Royal mail still operates down south because it doesn't seem to operate up here!

The Treasurer has asked me to post the following

"there has been a problem getting the appropriate postal service for UK mail added to the Club’s Royal Mail account.

Treasurer believed this had been resolved this week but will investigate."

Thank you for that Diana, we must hope it will be sorted quickly. These things often take a disproportionate amount of time to resolve, but we will get there in the end.
