  3. Growing up in the 50's it was one main theme on infant kids minds.
    An interesting aspect from yesterday was when a lady brought her father's army shirt and belt in wondering if the museum would be interested in it . She didn't know anything about her father's military history apart from that he ended up in Germany .
    There weren't any markings on the shirt, the only clue was the colour of the belt . I said that she could try writing to the Medals Office who might be able to find her dad's military records.
    Meanwhile when I got back home I went on to the net and researched army belt colour schemes eventually finding which one it belonged to . We gave our information to the museum who has her details . So hopefully she will know a little bit more about her dad.

    Should that read ?

     
  10. Its raining here ! I thought I would just check the pond life . The Dragonfly that I sort of rescued seems to have gorn ! I thought I would just check on the ones I found yesterday and found a newly emerged one getting soaked . I took pity on it and picked the leaf it was clinging to and took them both into our greenhouse. It should have a better chance in there .I will check it later .

    I grew up in the late 70s and the 80s, and being female, it's not exactly what you'd expect, is it? :laugh:

    Having said that, I'm a military brat on both parents' sides (and they from military families as well), although both had left the forces before I put in an appearance. I have the odd distinction of my grandfathers having fought on opposite sides in WW1... :whistle:

    Both grandfathers also served in WW2, paternal as a senior Colonel in the Polish army and maternal in the Belgian resistance. I've got a fair bit of the former's wartime bits and bobs, and it's fascinating to put them into context with what was going on.

    The museum sounds like fun though. One of the best bits of militaria / military history is doing the research. ^_^

    Why'd you take it to the bathroom to unblock it?

    Or rather, it was the bathroom sink that I unblocked. :laugh:
