    Hi All,

    Good Luck with the new forum, not too keen on the registration palaver I think people like to just read and reply quickly without too much effort or routine.
    and keep a tight rein on the rubbish.

    I look forward to the discussions that will come.

    Cheers

    SunLife

    Think about it, anyone with stars is a moderator. Everyone else is enlisted, and the more post you have the more medals you get. The first medal comes at 11 posts, the second at 51, ther are 7 more medals after that.

    Everyone should know what the first medal is, anyone know about the second one?

    Greetings, fellow WW2 affecianados!!!

    I'm always glad to discover another such group to exchange & debate with. Believe it or not one can take a lot of flak (no pun intended) for showing more than a passing interest in the gargantuan phenomenon known as WW2.
    It's difficult to convince the "uninitiated" that one isn't merely obsessed with tales of horrific slaughter and bloody violence, but the vast array of political, cultural, social, and technological elements which made WW2 the formative event for the history of the next 50 years, and continues to influence the development of world society to this day.
    Only today I watched a television program describing the popularization of power tools, which told of the rise in use of such devices being attributed largely to a program developed in the US during the war in which citizens were encouraged to repair consumer goods such as small appliances to compensate for shortages the producton of war materiel had caused...
    People were allowed to take tools used in manufacturing facilities home for use in such repairs, and the idea of "do-it-yourself" was born.
    After the war, the idea became so popular that companies like Black & Decker were able to switch to producing power tools for home use when war production was scaled back.
    It's just another example of a way in which the war changed the nature of society which had almost nothing to do with combat..

    WHEW! I do ramble on!
    Until later.
