Hi everyone, I'd like to do section 13, Ireland. I'd like to put the lockdown here in Bavaria to good use :)
Good to see you! - Ben.

Section 7 notes
~2:25 stumble "lieutenant...lieutenant general"
~2:50 stumble "that though... that though he said"
~4:02 stumbles "brigade... brigade of cavalry Cromwell had brought back from the w..west"
~6:33 stumble "in Wo...Worcestershire"
~7:49 stumble "London peti... petitioned"
~8:40 repeat "we owe you... we owe to you"
~14:50 stumble "near Lang... Langport"
~17:21 stumble "and the other half surrendered ...s...after a short bombardment. "
~18:56 stumble "many stie...sieges"
~19:44 stumble "clapped their scee... their scaling ladders"
~20:35 repeat "since defeat... since his defeat at Naseby"
~24:47 stumble "speedily res...restored confidence"
~25:18 repeat "the letters taken... taken at Naseby"
~30:36 stumble "Cromwell has given to the Mal... Malignants of Oxford
~31:31 stumble "General... Lieutenant General"

This looks a lot, but they are all simple fixes and stumbles and repeats are easily cut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLdJsoGQc9c (and you don't need to patch in corrections, as you caught yourself each time :thumbs: ) I suggest you begin at the end and work backwards, to keep the times correct (just a little 'pro' tip... the voice of experience)

Your reading style is excellent and there are no technical issues to be concerned about.

If you could do these edits ASAP and re-upload using the same file name, that would be great :thumbs:

Thank you so much for taking the time to spot these and lay them out so clearly!

All those edits have been done. I enjoyed the editing process; it's like magic watching words disappear as if they'd never been said! Thanks for the tip on starting from the end, I definitely would have started from the beginning and gradually lost my way otherwise!

The new version is here:

Welcome aboard. I think a lot of readers will “enjoy” the isolation, except those stuck trying to entertain children. And of course, we have a lot of medical professionals, who won’t be around for a while.
