I took a gamble as it was the Scotsman Saturday supplement that I was looking for, but the nice lady on the phone said I could always return the paper if it did not have all the sections. When the gift pack arrived the paper did have the magazine in mint condition, which will be incredibly treasured, and the gift pack and certificate are lovely too...many thanks Historic Newspapers for delivering exactly what I needed so quickly, and all the best in the coming challenging months!!!
