A number of members have written to me to say that Brecon is out of stock re my books and asking where they can be obtained.
I'm pleased to say that Brecon has just placed an order to re-stock so it might be wise to contact them to reserve copies in advance.
They should be in Brecon in a fortnight.

It is still the 8th edition on sale at the moment.
You will have to be patient for the 9th edition.
Courage, mon brave!

Sorry for the musical reference.

Thanks for your answer.

Hello Steve,
In English: "I will wait day and night, I will wait..."
The problem is that the continuation of the song is "...your return"; she is in love.
Pretty delicate about the author of England's sounds...

By a marvellous coincidence that was my father-in-law's favourite song.
He first heard it as the British arrived in Beirut in World War Two (March 1944).  As his battery drove through the streets, all the cafes were playing it so loudly the troops could hear it.  He never forgot it and whenever he heard it, it took him back there. Lebanon had been liberated from the Vichy French and it was a welcome few months of peace for him in Syria/Lebanon.
It was of course the original version (not, rusteze, the slushy version you offered!!! hrrrmph!) but this one sung by Rina Ketty

Mr Whybra,
I am always fond of stories lived and moved during tragic events.
But since you know the meaning of the lyrics of this song, I am relieved to have brought this precision before in my post to Steve ...

Cheers

I agree your's is better. Nevertheless, it must become the theme tune for Studies in the Zulu War.
