My paper Journal arrived today, Saturday 7th July. And what a lovely edition it is too.

Well done contributors: Andy Sykes, QUADICE! - ok I made that word up for four times - (Spanish Civil War is an interest of mine! So two rticles is a bonus. And two SAS operations 1941-43 is interesting too!); Alan Hamilton (I didnt know the French had Parachut troops! in 1935-40!); Rob Morgan TWICE (What a monster that Kaiser Wilhelm Geschutz gun is! Sorry no umlaut there; and interesting blimps in the Rearguard!); Greg Potter, (a player after my own heart! keep it simple! espcially when knackered); Ian Shaw (meglomania big scale games rings a bell with most gamers, nice link to blog); Richard Baber TWICE (Syria 1941 is a forgotten front Richard brings alive. And Ardennes 1944 - a favourite of many a gamer.)

Then all those book reviews too: well done Rob Morgan, THRICE; Richard Baber TEN-ICE - I am at it again making up words; Paul A. Allcock; Russ Phillips; ian Shaw.

And a final thank you to the production team and editor: Andre Rolph, Russ Phillips and PETE JONES!!

Got my copy today, read it between watching the formula 1 qualifying and the 2nd half of the game in Samara. Thanks Gents for all of you who have written articles and helped publish the magazine.

Good edition; does the lack of time pressure allow for improvements?

I think that one article attributed to me is by someone else, may be a gentleman called Ian Taylor ?
