    Hello everyone,

    I am LoudRex, but you can call me Rex.
    I was born in Arnhem, The Netherlands, therefore also the airborne division avatar.

    Just 26 years old, I am at least 16 years interested in WW2.
    This because my grandfather and great-grandfather both fought in the Second world war, but not in Holland.
    I also like the NatGeo and History Channel documentaries a lot.
    So I am basically learning every day something about the WW2.
    But the most interested am I in the eastern European part of the war, how worse were the cruelties there, jeez.

    My hobbies are reading information about WW2, collecting stamps, collecting banknotes and coins and at last my computers.
    I build every pc by my self, and trying to set up an web design business.

    Well I think I am more a reader than a poster, but we'll see.

    Kind Regards,
    Rex

    Hi Rex and welcome to the forums.

    I've visited Arnhem a few times and have to say it is a very nice and welcoming place. It also has a huge amount of WW2 history attached to it and I've taken the opportunity every time I've been there to see some of the wartime sites.

    Welcome Rex, I too like collecting banknotes but my wife has a hobby of spending them. :cool:
    It would be wonderful to have an interest in WWII and live where some of it actually took place.
