You are very welcome.

Whilst I enjoy all the SWA material I do feel that the fairly recent Rules & Games section is a real boon – I've enjoyed revisiting several of the airwarfare games in particular.

(I am, by the way, not any one of the several authors of the rules/games – well, not so far wink)
