Thanks Andy , I surprised myself getting them to you !! . Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy . Quite a bit on Brunker . This book on the FLH was only released a couple of weeks ago , Cam Simpson is a member here , I hope he doesn't mind me posting this hard found work on Brunker , I haven't had a chance to read it yet , mine arrived yesterday , but what I've seen it's certainly a must have , not much detail on Colonial Units in the AZW , courtesy of their records being pulped to help the War effort in 1915 ! , and this is rarer still being a well detailed account of the F.L.H. You need to study mo You need to study mo
