The below has been encountered when recently looking up the site of
Note: This site has shut down. Unloading is now complete.
This has nothing to do with the near-closure in February 2001.

I suggest you visit
World War II; A British Focus
Land forces of the Britain, The Empire and Commonwealth
Britain's Small Wars and other valuable sites.
