After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

From the Islam Question and Answer Site, answering the question "Are there any texts that state the age of the earth?":
It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) took my hand and said: “Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, created the earth on Saturday, and He created the mountains on Sunday. He created the trees on Monday, He created disliked (bad) things on Tuesday, He created light on Wednesday, He scattered the animals in it on Thursday, and He created Adam (peace be upon him) after ‘Asr on Friday, the last of creation in the last hour of Friday, between ‘Asr and nightfall.”

Narrated by Muslim (2789). This hadith was regarded as flawed by some of the scholars, who viewed it as being the words of Ka‘b al-Ahbaar.
And who am I to disagree?

Presumably that's the opposite of "Light Division"... and Klaus Michaelse was a German officer who served with the 19th Light Division Afrika Korps in North Africa, 1942-1943. A sound recording of his recollections has catalogue number 2798 at the Imperial War Museum.
