Re: Truths, Untruths, and damned untruths (of sorts)

Surely, in the spirit of an open forum I am entitled to do this and keep fellow posters up to date ? Of course you're entitled to do so. Nobody has said that you're not. Richard (or anyone else) are equally entitled to express their views on what you post here or elsewhere. As long as you're all ci...

We have the opportunity to contribute to WSS, if we choose to take it. I'll have a read and put forward an update on the Society and what we are continuing to do having set aside the journal.
Thanks Phil. It would be good to set the record straight.

The Japanese took advantage of the prevailing jet stream winds to deploy balloon weapons against the U.S. and Canada during the war as well.
I'd heard of the Japanese bomb balloons before, but Grant's article was the first time I'd heard of the British using barrage balloons offensively.

Re: New article: Operation Outward

I had intended to post here every time a new article was posted, but this is the first time I remembered to do it :oops:

If you really want to know when new articles or reviews are posted, sign up to get emails. Don't rely on me ;)

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Do the team think there is any future for the Society. If so ,how do we proceed. My own view is we could try to re-launch the forum, and then take it from there. Personally, yes I think the society still has a future. Surely we proceed as we'd originally set out, with contributions being posted to ...

I received emails from both you and Mark and replied to both of you. Apologies if it didn’t get through.

Fred.
I got yours, but apparently some people only replied to Mark, and didn't copy the team in.

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Everyone that was listed as a member at the end of sub 15 should have had either an email or a letter, setting out Mark's proposal and inviting them to give an opinion.

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

So, how is the SOTCW re-boot going. Well, you will recall that I agreed with the SOTCW Team that I would proceed if I achieved a hundred positive replies. Actually, I proposed this to them but got no response from Russ, Phil or Andrew so I assumed that silence was concurrence. Apologies for not res...

As this overall topic is now spread over various threads it might be an idea (if its possible) to consolidate it all under one thread. cheers John
I think that's possible, but the end result can be very confusing. So, instead, I've posted links to this thread in the other threads.
