    Jonathan Ball It's a way of life.

    Since Adam added a 'tweet this link' facility to the forum I've been attempting to spread the word to like minded souls with an interest in military history on this fine forum via twitter. I've started with a couple of Andy's investigations into events of 1940 at Wormhout and Nieppe. With that in mind I thought it would be a good idea to throw it open for suggestions of other great threads which showcase the forum at it's very best. A collection of 'classic threads' for want of a better phrase.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Jonathan - This post has reminded me of what I think is probably the best thread on here (I would say that though) and its not even WW2 related !

    That's a hard one !!!

    There is so much to choose from and the problem would be that everyone's idea of what constitutes a "classic" might be different.

    Now if you were to ask what is your favourite thread then I would have no problem at all.

    It was my first postings on the forum in 2006 and I was knocked for six at getting an immediate and most informative reply on something that had happened some sixty odd years earlier

    Wow! One of my threads a potential classic?
    I just re-read all 52 pages of it and it brings it all back to life. I never did get to the London Metropolitan Archive or get a photo of the plaque restored to it's home.
    I had also forgotten that it was my first thread and I didn't know how to upload photos!
    At risk of suggesting another of my own threads I thought this was a magnificent example of members co-operating and coming up with a result in double quick time:

    spidge RAAF RESEARCHER

    This is a more recent one of my favourites which grew from my research before my trip to the UK in 2011. Started off as "Single commonwealth burials in France" and brought two family members to the site who were researching relatives.

    Pollux has finished the book - He sent me a copy yesterday via email. I just need to get it translated into English :)

    Overjoyed to see my K2 tread on the list, up there with the best of them, almost my first thread and very much a learning curve, and at the time a severe test of my computer skills, self taught and one finger typing, confirmation indeed that it was worth the effort.

    regards lofty

    I know many here would agree.

    I just noticed that this one is posed because the engine isn't running. Who else can spot why this is obvious?

    No billowing clag coming out of the exhaust?

    I quite like the thread "Help! Tracked AFV i.d. needed!" for some twisted reason!

    Purely for the historical aspect I would like to nominate the following. It's a thread some will not like to see again but it contains contemporary documents I've not seen before or since.
