Docks and Ports of London:2
Ontology on ww2talk?
We've suddenly gone high-brow...
Very happy with this! Must finish the Swordfish book first though and that is quite long.
Seaforth currently knocking £20 off this:
Naval Anti-Aircraft Guns and Gunnery
(Though add £4 postage if just tempted by that book.)
Any mention in the book about the original name of 'Mayfly' and which regiments fired it first?
There is cursory mention of Mayfly, I think, but not exact. Will PM you when I have the book to hand.
It's a gooder though very technical. Was a slow read for this non-techie but worth it.

A book buying opportunity:
Having just splurged on a number of once-in-a-blue-moon 'bargains', I think I'd better avoid searching Lulu for 'P M Knight' for now. Hopefully his cut isn't affected.
Yes, I know one has an NMP reprint and the other is in the gallery here - what part of 'problem' don't you understand?
Still waiting for the others...
Had filed that under 'emails I shan't open for fiscal reasons', and you do this!
God damn the pusher man.
Only 3 more to get, & it even feels like get one free.
I can stop any time I like.
