Crucifox UK Word Glossary

For those who aren't familiar with Brit-speak, I've compiled a handy word glossary while writing the Crucifox series. If there are any other words you were confused by, let me know and I'll include them in the glossary!

Crucifox are from London, England. There are no 'cor blimey, guv'nor's, but there are lots of other words and phrases. Brandon is from Glasgow, Scotland.

Enjoy! (or "knock yourself out", as we'd say.)
