    Welcome Nigel/wet255.

    Cricket always makes me think of Robert Crisp, who wrote Brazen Chariots an account of his experiences of armoured combat in North Africa in late 1941. I have an interesting painting of Crisp in a Stuart which hangs in my study.

    Do you mind if I add you to the authors section I am allocating today? And please tell us when you are publishing and where you are selling it.
