    Maybe (as a suggestion) we can organize this forum into several subforums. Each subforum's subject is a nations "codes, cyphers, and spies." Like one subforum is about the US's intelligence and includes things like OSS or the Navajo Code Talkers, or Germany and includes things like the Enigma, or Britain with Ultra and people like Alan Turing, etc. just a possible suggestion. :unsure:

    Let's see how it fills in, then we'll look at splitting it up.

    Just to clarify

    "6" relates to organisation & allocation of signals units within "21st Army Group", with particular emphasis on DDay / Normandy Campaign. Not overburdened with cyphers. Input from the very diligent Trux.

    "5" is one of umpteen specific regt/corps -based sub-forums under the header of "Unit Histories" and is for any query, war diary or document relating to the Royal Corps of Signals - nothing much about 'secret' activities there.


    "4" (under "Unit Histories") Research in SOE etc still requires the occasional FoI application for which the admirable Jedburgh is on hand to offer advice. Many personnel files now open/in public domain, as the subjects can be proven deceased.

    "2", and "3" (also under "Unit Histories") are again for any general query/info/discussion about operations, the particular units themselves as well as those serving in special(ist), not secret, forces e.g. Commandos, LRDG, SAS, SBS.

    ["Unit History" has been divided into sub-forums (for individual regiment or corps) based on the amount of traffic/interest.]


    "1 - Top Secret" is actually the sub-forum on WW2Talk for anything relating to Bletchley, Cryptology, black propaganda, intelligence, interception, etc, as well as discussions relating to relevant activities by Units mentioned above.

    Good here, innit.

    I don't really like to admit being WW2Talk's admin while I'm sarcastically crashing around here, half-drunk, largely clueless about the Pacific & occasionally banging on about armoured things.
    But... as I don't want to see anyone hacked off by an implication that 2T is overtly interfering, or that we have any problems with 'life' there, I feel I should perhaps point out that Fred is in no way anything to do with running 2T; he's just a tiny tad excitable, bless 'im.
    Post where you damned well like. It's a big old Internerd.

    Two separate forums.
    One owner.
    Vive la difference!

    People aren't stupid, obviously there's some co-chatter between Otto, Admins and mods of the sites, but again, to re-state:
    'We' have no interest in how 2F uses it's sections, other than what 'we' might feel as individual members here.

    OK?
    Now I'll just slink back to my local irritating limey activities.

    Not sure why, some of us for instance don't frequent the other forum. Why should we then limit what we discuss here.
