My book on the history of the GPSS is scheduled to finally come out at the end of April.

A couple of links concerning the book.  In the youtube video you can 'read' the book in 3 minutes

More details on the publisher's website at: http://www.bradford-on-avon.org.uk/pipelines.html

Thank you Longpockets and PNK. 

New information, in that it was new to me, did turn up recently that during the war the pipelines were built only at night and that the North-South pipeline between Stanlow and Avonmouth was built in 1938.  However, in both cases the 'new information' was incorrect - in fact I have absolutely no idea where it originated from.

I remember that cropping up somewhere. It didn't make sense as you would have needed lights to see what you were doing defeating the object of using night for cover! I suspect by the time of the pipeline building enemy forays were not as frequent but still a worry.
