Slowed down a bit with the wiki editing as I'm working in the toll booths of the Humber Bridge.

Changed the name to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_EF_(1941) after someone pointed out that "Crucifiction" was a coining by an excitable author. I'm still ripping off tolls on the Humber Bridge so have not had much time to work on AASF but I've got a couple of days off coming up and hope to finish it then. Kira the cat died suddenly and I was afflicted by gout for a week so I've been pretty subdued these last few days.

Anderson, R. C. (2010). Cracking Hitler's Atlantic Wall: The 1st Assault Brigade Royal Engineers on D-Day. Mechanicsburg, PA: Stackpole Books. ISBN 978-0-8117-0589-9.

Got a copy at last, by our very own Richard Anderson. It will come in handy for the rewrites of Infantry Tank and Clearing the Channel Coast.
