I have already mailed them. Well, I just found a note in the mailbox
stating that Selektvracht has been at my door. Selektvracht is a mail company
with a very limited service. They only deliver Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday. British Royal Mail has a special agreement with
Selektvracht. Parcels go from British Royal Mail to Selektvracht
Netherlands. Veritas has sent the parcel in a way that the only ring twice
at day time without the possibility of evening delivery. Picking it up costs me
30 minutes cycling and 30 minutes cycling backand is only possible until 5 pm. I
just stopped delivery at Friday as it would mean that the parcel is sent back to
the UK. I asked Selektvracht to deliver it on WEDNESDAY (!!!) as that is
the first day that I am home whole day. So I will have to wait during one
day for this parcel.
UK citizens, this is your Royal Mail who does not forward their parcels to
Dutch Royal Mail but to that Selektvracht company. I will never ever order
something in the UK anymore with the exception of Amazon as they give me the
possibility of picking it up in the evenings (but in practice I ask them to send
it to my mother - it is not possible with this Veritas book as I live in postal
district 561 and my mother in 562.
WIth kind regards,

Hi Jan -
Why don't you phone or email Veritas? A friend ordered
Stalin's Ethnic Cleansing in the US and she received it quickly.
It also depends which method of shipment you chose, I think. I don't know
how long it takes to receive shipments Europe to Europe.
Veritas Bookshop told me the book about Stalin's ethnic cleansing
was sent to me two weeks ago. It still has not arrived. What are the
experiences of the people in this group with Veritas Bookshop (London, UK) ?
