I also notice that Bernhard's recent Bundesgendarmerie thread has been relocated here. Does that mean post war Austrian militaria topics are welcome here as well, even though they technically involve a different country? With the departure of BRD from the International forum, most of the traffic there will be SE Asia related (unless and until that too spins off into its own forum). Perhaps the Bundesheer would feel more comfortable hanging out with its Bundeswehr cousin over here than with the ARVN strangers over there?

Gene T,

In the dim dark days when the WAF was first formed, (and 56k was high speed?) I became one of the first 50 members of the forum. Unfortunately, that didn't help my two finger typing skill and I made a typo in my last name when I registered as a member. I requested that the web master correct my spelling mistake but it seemed that this could not be done. Since then my log on name, and hence my name on the forum, has remained as I first registered. It is way too late to change it now so it will remain as Criag for ever. My wife, however, says we will not be changing our last name!

Regards,

Gordon

Capitalism has triumphed! A long overdue forum! Thanks for starting this forum dedicated to West German militaria.

Congrats is due to Gordon in becoming the moderator. He is sure to do a great job as he is certainly qualified and experienced in this field.

Maybe Klaus could co-moderate if he expressed an interest.

Congratulations Gordon! Now you are going to have to drag out some of those goodies and photograph them.

I love it when seudo-names are changed out for real names (mysteriously happens when members become moderators).

Welcome Thomas J. Cullinane Jr.

I wish all the best to both you and to Gordon with respect to the success of this new forum.

Cheers,

Micahesl,

Thanks for the good wishes. Nice to have a second hand on the tiller. Like you I like to see peoples names. I am in touch with a lot of people through emails and PMs on the forum and it is sometime difficult to keep the correct personal name linked to the forum name.

Regards,

Gordon

Kameraden - Thanks so much for your words of welcome.

I didn't think life could get any better after the BRD Forum was finally established last month, that is until this past weekend when Ralph Pickard informed me that I was chosen to be a forum moderator.

I will strive to do my utmost to validate the panel's faith and confidence in me and will endeavor with my colleagues Gordon and Ralph to maintain the high standards we've all come to expect from the WAF.

Thanks again for your welcome. I look forward to working with everyone to expand the body of original knowledge on the Bundesrepublik Deutschland with new and exciting information.

Horrido!

T.J. Cullinane
