    Very happy with this! Must finish the Swordfish book first though and that is quite long.

    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.

    The Works still adding to their cheap Haynes books.
    This one by Dick Taylor so should be good.

    Lanc, DDay & Falklands ones have also appeared.

    Hmm... getting a newer, sportier model when the old banger starts giving you trouble is simple in theory...

    The dream of finding Men of Valour (8 Hussars) in a charity shop has not yet materialised. A shop in Westport appears to have acquired Alanbrooke's library but they're going for a bit of a premium, so probably a good thing there's no time to go there.

    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...

    Bastard.
    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.
    Can't I?
