    Just started a blog on this site which seems a good way to let others who are interested look at the info, diaries or whatever. My experience tells me that otherwise you have to keep linking everything all the time, which I cant really be bothered with. Unfortunately the result of my laziness is that nobody reads the books I've done, and the blog is only read by a select few!

    Our site is a huge resource of information and research around the Auxiliary Units, Britain's secret resistance force set up in 1940.

    We have a network of researchers around the UK submitting reports on various patrols often accompanied by photographs of any remaining physical evidence of the units themselves including the operational bases situated under the ground throughout the UK.

    The site also gives visitors the opportunity to search for relatives they think might have been involved, general background on the Aux Units and Special Duties Section, the training they undertook, weapons and equipment used as well as a huge library of images and videos.

    Site can be found here:

    Blogware built in here slowly taking off.
    Do feel free to start a blog: WW2Talk: Blogs, and comment on what's there.
    I don't much care what the subject is really - crack on with whatever urge takes you. Within reason... :unsure:

    A few recent ones:
    [blog='18']Murders of Lt. Brabourne & Lt. Vivian, 6 Battalion Grenadier Guards[/blog]
    [blog='7']Looking for Bombardier H L Parnell's Family[/blog]
    [blog='17']Ron Goldstein's Blog[/blog]
    [blog='21']zahonado's Blog "Before the Show"[/blog]

    If you start one, link it here.


    Oh, and there's also a facility within blogs to embed a link to your own external ones - again, feel free.

    My humble effort is built around a Polish Squadron in the RAF in WW2. It started as an article on a Polish Wellington Bomber that crashed near the village where I was born (in fighter country!) and took over my life!

    I have had a lot of help from the families of the airmen in this country, in Poland and many other countries worldwide.

    First time I looked into so many blogs.
    Great source of information and seems to be easy, even for non-computer minded people like me.

    I have set up a blog for WW2 historical stuff, focused primarily on British and Canadian armour. A little bit of modelling stuff (colour mixes for paints) but a lot of it is to do with documents I've found at Library and Archives Canada. In the future I hope to visit the Canadian War Museum Research Centre where I am told there are LOTS of photographs, many unpublished.

    My latest posts are about the Canadian-built Valentine tanks, and about three books to do with 3RTR. The next few will be based on reviews of D-Day (performance of AVREs, RM Centaurs, and evaluation of the German defenses) from August 1944.

    Chris,
    Great blog on the Skink. I had long thought it was simply a prototype. I had no idea how effective it was as an anti-infantry weapon in NWE.
