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.

Welcome to the Forum, Nigel.


Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.
