    Here's my effort: Grandad's War the idea behind it is to record my Grandad's service with both the West Yorkshire Regiment and East Yorkshire Regiment.

    I'd welcome any thoughts or criticisms whatsoever :)

    Looks like a blogs the way to go.My mate, who used to work in web design said my webpage looks like something a group of 7 year olds put together as a school project :huh:
    So will be starting a blog sometime soon, have been inspired by what I've seen on this thread.

    Hi, I have a long running blog based on cycling the coastline here in East Lothian, SE Scotland on a bicycle designed originally for snow but ideal for soft sand;

    The blog is mostly cycling (offroad/mountainbiking) based but if you search down and click the labels you will find a lot of WW2/cold war stuff i write about and photo or film related to the County,

    Recently i started a 2nd blog which may be of more interest to folk on here;
    No Through Road, No Through Road
    I have started to document with photos and films i make stuff to be seen around East Lothian and further afield, a lot of stuff i have not found mentioned or photos of online, Spigot morter mounts and Fugas points and other things i have found out about but still to do is the countys secret Aux Army Unit Bunkers and other less known stuff...feel free to browse and leave comments :)

    Hi, I've just joined and haven't a clue what to do next. My reason for joining is to find more information about my dad who was in the L of C Signals in Papua New Guinea during WW2. I would love to know what their jobs were up there and any other info. If I'm in the wrong spot - sorry!, but maybe you could direct me where to go. Cheers.

    It isn't confined to WWII or any subject in particular but the latest entry in mine should be of interest to anyone with WWII connections or interests. I find it is a good way to spread the information that I have and make contact with others who have similar interests and additional information.

    Hi everybody,

    I hope you have all had a very nice Christmas and I wish you a very happy new year.

    My website 'World War 2 Discovery' launches at noon on January 1st.

    I have always wanted to learn much more about World War 2 history, to try and understand what life was like for the generation living on the Home Front and those on the battlefield.

    I will be revisiting historical sites, exploring museums, attending 1940s weekends and events, meeting people such as yourselves who are passionate about WW2 history, picking the brains of historians and so much more.

    This is a journey, a journey that will take a lifetime, I don’t know exactly where it will take me or who I shall meet along the way but I have never been so excited about anything in my life.

    If you ever get a spare minute, feel free to visit WW2Discovery.net

    Launches noon on January 1st.

    Thanks.

    Ross

    I've FINALLY started my Blog - Elite Warriors/Pathetic Soldiers

    Mostly consisting of stuff which I find on the side and feel could be better covered online...

    Elite Warriors/Pathetic Soldiers

    First series of articles will (mostly) focus on the Reconnaissance Corps.

    I think there is an Australian sub-forum here somewhere. The mods can direct you to it if you can't find it.

    I will be starting up a website soon. This will be dedicated primarily to the historical mystery fiction I am writing about New York in the 1950's, but I should have space for my first book Armies of Empire and other WWII stuff as well. I will post the link when the site is up and running.

    Not really a blog, but I help administrate a Facebook site called Bangsbo Fort. Bangsbo Fort is a museum which tells the story of the Germans who occupied Frederikshavn in Denmark during World War 2 and built more than 80 bunkers around the present museum. They created a command center here, where all of the Intel in Northern Jutland was navigated back to. We regularly update the Facebook site with stories from the german war journal as well as Photos from the area.
