    After a run of four days at the National Archives last week and having the pleasure of meeting four different members (too briefly) whilst I was there.

    I've been wondering who have you met and where?

    Briefly showed Paul some photos of a very fat German at Beltring one year.
    Have spoken to Soren, also at Beltring.
    May have bumped into CS, B, EvB, RM, T&A and a few others more than once or twice... but I couldn't possibly comment.

    Sometimes wonder while standing in the military section of bookshops if some of the other nerds browsing might be web-acquaintances.
    I may even have banned 'em at some point :).

    Whether I can remember or not, I feel secure - as I take far more photos than anyone else, and thus have considerably more evidence if battle should ever commence...
    Looking at one now - 'Schütze Sensible'. ;)

    If I managed to convince the forum that Overlord was indeed in Northern Portugal perhaps a few would visit a wee bit more often...

    Had a very enjoyable lunch in North London about 18 months ago with Gerry Chester and Ron Goldstein which was noted on the forum afterwards -Gerry had flown in from Arizona and I from Western Canada - it was a good day - with a few laughs for three ex cavalrymen...
    Cheers
