Good evening everybody and a Happy New Year!
"Joining your net", as we "Flaggies" used to say.
There's a lot of thought provoking stuff on this great site and I'm looking forward to getting involved in it.
Regards,
Bazza.

Whisper it but we all seem to be of a certain age on this site which in my humble makes it better.

Cheers Len, "Flaggies" is the proud name we RA signallers gave ourselves.
In your day I imagine "Dropshorts" or "Long range Snipers" would've been what the Gunners were called. Later we came to be called "Plankies" (As in "thick as two short ..")
We had a lot of respect for the old Scaleybacks, they could do MORSE!.
