Thank you, Sir, for those remarks. My first reaction was a bit surprised – why should repeating those wise words be necessary ? But later I realised that repeating a message is necessary to keep knowledge within the peer group. If I may offer a quote myself: "The ideal war-gamer is sweet-tempered, dislikes the sound of his own voice and has been endowed by nature with very long arms". From "Charge ! or how to play war games Brig. P. Young & Lt. Col. J.P. Lawford – Morgan-Grampian, London, 1967".
So thank you, General Pettygree and of course, thank you, Bill !

I think this all needed to be said. Thank you.

It is a shame that this is not general practice here.

Sound maxims, Sir! And, although the sound of Maxims would not be heard on Napoleonic battlefields, nevertheless I have long followed your Dispatches with admiration both for the figures and for the narratives. Good Luck.
