Hi Hayley

Amazon <> has "limited availibility" copies. If you have
no joy with them, you could try the ABE website. I've bought lots of
books from there in the past. <>

Best wishes

Hi Liz,

Thanks again for the info. Just wondering where one could get their
hands on a copy of those two books by Roger Harris - Islanders Deported
parts I and II?
