DAILY MIRROR (4 Oct 1969) "The great moon game" p.7

This is a guess based on evidence found that Bellamy was paid half the price of his July 1969 Daily Mirror work for something he calls "Daily Mirror Moon Map". I have searched the Mirror Magazine for that period but not found it. However I did discover this:

"BLAST-OFF! Get into orbit today with the Mirror's Great Moon Game competition" [...] "Hundreds of consolation prizes await successful entrants In our Moon Game You could win a superb forty-eight page Moon Flight Atlas, a huge full colour Moon Map. or a fascinating Moon Globe"

Results were to be published in the Daily Mirror Monday November 3 - [unseen].

However this still leaves a problem. A full colour piece fetched a larger income than the suggested amount

There was a large (two double pages) moon map  published in the Daily Mirror Friday 18 July 1969 'Mirrorscope Moon Special' and is credited:  "Moon Map copyright Hallwag, Berne, Switzerland.  Additional graphics by Roy Foster and Roy Wright."

The named lunar places are typeset; plus additions of lettering in "UNO" pen stencil looking style indicating various moon landing sites, with map 'key' text

Do you know anything more? Do you know anyone who won one of these consolation prizes? You can email us at feedback @ frankbellamy.co.uk
