New Addition

So what’s all this then? 

A couple of years ago I showed you a new arrival to the research library, and as at least one of you (well, exactly one of you, if memory serves) seemed to appreciate it at the time,…

…here’s the latest addition (Christmas present from the missus.  Cool, eh?).

So, a few random pages from Volume One,…

…followed by a few from Volume Two,…

…and thus, in theory, at least, were you now to ask all those questions that you’ve been dying to ask about all things Austro-Hungarian, I’m your man!

Happy New Year to you all, and a big thank you for your continued support, each and every one of you.

      Thank you kindly Glenn. Very much appreciated. I am a WFA member although it is a few years now since I attended a meeting – ironically, I bet most of the other local members are totally unaware of my site!! I have considered putting forward some stuff for Stand To – I can come up with some stories that I suspect people might ‘enjoy’ reading about. Maybe I should?

      • Glenn Kerr says:

        The simple answer is absolutely. You present remarkable unique stories and information. The cemeteries have always been my passion for the Great War and the stories that exist within each one. We would welcome the opportunity to print some of them in our own Maple Leaf magazine with your blessing. Our members and friends come from across Canada, the USA and Europe. You can e-mail me anytime!! at to expand the idea. Thank you very much for your note. Glenn
