    I'm sure they are a member of this forum.
    I know it's been mentioned before, I can't find the thread at the moment.

    Had a look at the site and like the concept but found it a little disconcerting because the Year was not shown.

    I went back to the Home page but still the same.

    I appreciate it's a work in progress but perhaps someone could mention it to the author ?

    hi ron

    ive just looked at the site again. it looks like someone heard you, the dates are now added. Theyre looking for contributions from old "vets". looks like another good resource for those with a story to tell to have them recorded.
