I am pilgrimmaster, a construct by which am known on a number of forums, a fifty something year old male (married to pilgrimmistress) with an interest in the second 'Great War' which stems back to my childhood; the son of a former wartime Wren and post-war soldier I spent much of my childhood in Germany, read War Picture Library magazines (yes, comics) avidly, finding it somewhat difficult to reconcile the Germans I knew with those killed by Captain Hurricane RM and Maggot Malone; educated at H&ISC Junior School and later at SLC Ramsgate I maintained my interest in this conflict whilst developing an understanding of previous and future wars.
I have vague (and I hope unpretentious) academic interest in the subject, have been and possibly might still be a member of the Centre for Second World War Studies at a midlands university, but the only hobby I have which has a direct link to WWII isshooting Lee Enfield rifles. That and the occasional battlefield tour.

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.

Wars are rarely fought in black and white, but in infinite shades of grey
(Poppy is occasionaly correct, or so I hear)
