Brilliant; wonderful. We have all been waiting a long-time for this.

However, why do people have to misname Britain as England, thereby sidelining Scots, Welsh and Irish?

Thank you so much for the kind words. blush

I left the "England" designation on Britain simply as a nod to the original WAS. Truth be told, I went back and forth on that issue in draft after draft of the board. It was also Scapa Flow in a few drafts. I waffled mostly because I had updated, if you will, the names of a few other bases (Trincomalee, etc.), and radically altered the Atlantic board to begin with, so why not, right?. In the end, though, somehow, it just didn't look natural - not WAS-y enough - with "Britain" there.

No selling short of the rest of the Commonwealth, or its contribution to the war effort - and I pray I have used that term correctly - was intended. At least I gave the RAAF and RNZAF back to the UK.
