Hi one and All. Some of you know me already, like Bader40, and Waltsdaughter, just wanted to say Hi, and good work on the site Marion.

 

I'll be popping in from time to time, and don't forget our other site Bader40 B)

Yeah, now we need a trip down to the pub. I'll buy the first round. :drinkin: Barry, it is so nice to see you here. A hearty welcome from VI Corps and Company.

 

If the name sounds familiar, Barry is one of the moderators of the Dick Winters Forum. I'm always over there bugging them and now they have to pay me back. :wacko::lol:

 

Looking forward to your posts and hope you will feel at home here too. :glasses2:

I have just got a new PC ( the last one was a real relic and it has taken me a while to get it running right), i hope that neither yourself or Marion think that i have been neglecting my duty. :o

A very warm welcome James. Great to have you amongst our new members. I hope you will find this site as beneficial as we do yours.

 

How long have you lived here in the states? We'd love to hear a little background about you and the how the site got started.

Thank you for the welcome, Marion. I emigrated to the US in 1950. I am a retired aerospace systems engineer. My WW2 Memoirs website resulted from the urging of my family and friends -- before I got too old to record my memories and remembrances.

Thanks for the welcome, Bader40 -- nice to see another Lanky on the Forum. Yes, I have been to Crawshawbooth -- I used to take the Ribble bus from Burnley -- stopping in Rawtenstall -- to Manchester when I worked at Metropolitan Vickers (Trafford Park) in the late 1940s.

I'll introduce myself here as well, Stevin Oudshoorn from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Marion and I got in contact through Mr. Art Morneweck, whose brother is buried in The Netherlands after being KIA on April 12, 1945. I have him on my website and Marion has a great tribute on this webiste for him as well.

 

I am amazed by how this site is growing both in perspective and size! Thanks to Marion I have also been in contact with several veterans and have now Mr. Palmer's book, which I recommend to everyone. I am a slow reader but this book I finished in no time!

 

Also big thanks for Marion for keeping an eye out for the technical well being of my site.

 

As to myself; After years of working as an editor I went back to university to study history. ( :drinkin: ) I try and research the lives and deaths of all the Allied soldiers that were killed in The Netherlands or are buried here. That is what my website is about. I hope it is a fitting tribute to these men. Furthermore I read and try to study everything to do with the land and air war in ETO.

 

I'll be back!

 

Greetings,

 

Stevin
