It’s nice to be appreciated; I thought you might be interested. Apart from you I reckon Martin R will read it, and Tim 2 3 might if we tell him it’s got tanks in it.

Apart from “War Bush” I have seen depressingly little in print on the West Africans. I have just orderd Davd Killingray’s “Fighting for Britain”, which covers all African troops (It’s not as if the East Africans are over-documented; there’s “Monsoon Victory”, and we could do with more books like Nunneley’s “Tales from the King’s African Rifles”).

Whenever I get to Kew again I might have to see what there is in the way of war diaries for the 81st and 82nd.

All the best,

John.
