Just pottered onto this fascinating site:

Hitler's Third Reich and World War Two in the News

Not sure if it's been linked here before but many of the stories certainly have, it operates as a general news feed for any contemporary references to WW2 in the news, always amazes me how many stories are still being thrown up so long after the event.

Cheers,
Adam.

mmmm some interesting stuff I agree.
Lots of leads to use on some of our threads.
This one caught my eye, would fit into swastika thread, hitlerite obsession thread etc etc

Nazi insignia allowed -- Anti-Nazi swastika OK
Germany's highest judicial court scrapped a ruling against a man convicted of breaching a ban on Nazi symbols by selling T-shirts with a crossed-out swastika. Juergen Kamm had been fined 3600 euros for "selling unconstitutional symbols." But the federal court of justice found that Kamm had committed no crime because the items he sold clearly carried an anti-Nazi message. The court did not believe that its ruling would be exploited by rightwingers as a loophole enabling them to wear Nazi insignia: "They will not wear Nazi insignia that have been corrupted in this way because they will see it as a travesty of something that they regard as 'holy.'"

Great site Von Poop.

I have used it many times before and just looking again saw this which I was not aware of and it occured in my home town of Melbourne.

I don't read "The Age" so serves me right!

I hadn't even noticed the Vintage Vehicle section.
Looks like there's something on there for almost everyone's area of interest, I've had great fun following some of the leads on there.

Tony Borglum has a thing for tanks. Last fall, after he and his father traveled to England to buy one, they bought 4 more with the idea of opening a tank-riding and obstacle course in their back yard. "We were there a day and a half, and I got to thinking: 'There's nothing like this in the U.S.,'" said Borglum, talking about the obstacle course in England where he bought the tanks and an armored personnel carrier. What happened has turned Waseca County into a battleground, because residents are less than thrilled by the idea of battle tanks and an armored personnel carrier rumbling across the land.

Sorrow rebuild me as I step out of the light

Misery strengthen me as I say my goodbyes

I heal my wounds with greif

And dream of you

And weep myself alive

RIP Grandad Cairns, You will always be my hero
