Bit busy this week but I've started Operation Schleswig-Holstein, the last of the minor actions of 1916 before the big one.

Working on a re-write of the article on Infantry tank but it's slow going.

I've been on a wikibreak while I learn to drive a counterbalance fork lift truck and qualified today so I should get back into Infantry tank over the weekend.

added some gleanings here (and shortened the title) now all I've got to do is think what to cut as it's a bit long.

A trilingual editor pointed me to the right part of the French official history (Tome V, volume II, NOT an appendix volume this time) and have been adding details to the French operations on 31 July and 22 October. Makes a nice change to use a source from 1937 instead of 1918.

Had a week off for my birthday but managed to spring clean Pilckem Ridge a bit and give the French a fairer share of the narrative.
