    That'll be me then , Paul.
    Cheers for that, just reading today about Frankforce at Vimy Ridge in the preserved trenches and here you are giving me a site with a map of it.

    This transcription will be quite an achievement if they manage to complete it. I bought a proper copy of this book a while back. It seems a bit of a shame that I might not be buying any more !

    I'm sure that I'll be able to find other books to buy though.

    Books on the net can never replace a real one in your hand.
    Might buy this for £22 from N&M Press.

    Absolutely. But a useful handy source to have!

    I managed to get both NW Europe volumes, originals, on eBay this week for £29. Might be worth keeping an eye out on there?

    Has anyone else noticed page 213 is missing.
    Good job it's on-line, I was able to print it out and tuck it into the book.

    Great link, I'm building up a picture of Boulogne and Calais during 1940 from one veterans story and this book helps a lot.

    I bought a copy of that book, 1st edition, at a library sale for 80p, a bargain if ever there was one. The author, Major L.F. Ellis, also headed the team (Captain G.R.G. Allen, Lieut-Colonel A.E. Warhurst, Air Chief Marshall Sir James Robb) that wrote volumes 1 and 2 of Victory in the West in the same official series.

    The electronic edition you located is from here "HyperWar: World War II on the World Wide Web" with details of the British Official History here "HyperWar: United Kingdom Official Histories".

    Let's hope they all get scanned.
