    Good evening,
    I fall into the stupid but savable bracket, been avoiding the grim reaper for 60 odd years, one or two close shaves but still here.
    WW2 two of my father's brothers did not come home, one KIA with Bomber Command the other died as a POW in Yokohama Japan in May 1945, he had been a POW since the fall of Hong Kong in December 1941.
    So this explains how I came to this subject aged 9 years.
    I collect WW2 items as well but claim no great expertise nor do I regard myself as an " expert", I have read a little but have forgotten a lot.

    Greetings James. I can relate to your introduction-especially the reading and forgetting part.
