    Hello + Moin
    I was born in 1966 and work as a museum/archaeological technician in a Bronze Age museum village.
    Besides I am engaged in the construction of historical bladed weapons - in another museum village...
    I have been a dedicated amateur military historian for over 30 years. This includes plane crash investigation, missing persons search and especially regional research on the end of the war in my home region. In connection with my research on the Clausewitz Panzer Division, I hope to find a few details that I have not yet been able to crack after 10 years of research.

    By the way, my nickname ltdan comes from my time as a reservist, where I drove my superiors crazy with the absolutely letter-perfect fulfillment of their orders. (Why did you put that weapon together so quickly, Gump? - Because you told me to, Drill Sergeant?)
    However, since my comrades found "Gump" a bit inappropriate, just the unscheduled promotion....

    Welcome, welcome, welcome.

    It is our great fortune to have you travel over her and stick your nose into our forum.

    Step on in, the new guy has to buy everyone a round...or three.

    Gump. I live in the state that movie and book character hailed from and the nearby large city has acquired "The Gump" as a nickname.
