    Stevin, I hope you don't mind but your personal settings didn't have the full post editor turned on, and you couldn't see the smilies, so I went into your profile and turned that on. You should now have the full glory of our smiley archive avialacle to you, every time you post.

    Taking 3 classes towards Certificate in Art & Design as well as working. One class is Writing & Illustration which is how I ended up spending so much time on this forum. I began writing (and therefore doing focused research) the book I always wanted to do incorporating my parents story with the events of World War II. I suspect I will be on the forum a lot for a spell and then off again while I get assignments and the writing done. I'm finding the forum rather addicting though!!

    Isn't it though?

    You are fitting in quite well, like one of the boys. Do you have any previous interest in the war before or are you learning as you go?

    Lifelong interest. I've been learning more specific Canadian military history now, versus the general information that was mostly available in the past. There seems to be more being written about the Canadians than ever before. Usually they were just lumped in with the British. So, bear with me when I seem to bring up the Canadian aspect a lot - right now it is the area in which I am concentrating my military education away from the forum.

    The forum is literally providing me with a forum to interact with others as interested and passionate as I in this topic. And I appreciate it! As I also appreciate the welcome I've been shown.

    You mean Canada had a seperate army in the 1940s?:eek: They fought in WWII?:p

    I understand what you mean. I joined and presently participate in Otto's other forum because it is more centered on the British and Commonwealth forces. I still complain because I cannot find good sites on such mundane items as British battledress and kit. Anything you want to know about the German forces is out there, but just try to find a good page (one that is not trying to sell you the kitchen sink) on Commonwealth dog tags. It ain't there, or at least I can't find it and I am pretty good with googling subjects.

    Huh, and I thought the only we got from "the great white north" was Bob and Doug Mckenzie!;)

    Seriously though, i would like to find out more about the Canadian troops that liberated my Father and his family in Holland!

    My Dad was in Holland and I have a letter written to my Mum by a girl from the house where he was billeted. She sent some gifts to my mother which I still treasure - little dutch shoes that say Ho1land 1944, etc. The letter was translated for Dad from Dutch, but I have always wanted to find her.
