My grateful thanks are also due to due to the not inconsiderable number of members of the WAAF who are now happily married to Co-Authors of this book. Officially attached to H.Q. Staff. Woodhall Spa, they claim immunity from writing paragrapghs, but all have been very supportive and most helpful with detail.
