Hi All
I see Admin has started a thread for top poster of the month.
Whilst not disputing the quality of Pascal's posts which I at least have found both amusing and incisive, this awards Quantity, not Quality.
Admin, members. Could members nominate a best, or most important post of the month, which we could then vote for? I am thinking of one that advances knowledge, cultural importance and understanding, new research etc etc.
If members agree, I would nominate 3 posts:
1. Rodley Stainlen's post (OK, I know it was November) informing the world that his father/family was donating his/their ancestor's medal (Lt Edgar Anstey) to the regimental museum in Brecon.
2. Julian Whybra's previously unreleased research on the nationalities of the "21 unknown" nationalities mentioned by Norman Holme.
3. And, my own post about Chelmsford being a psychopath.

Hi All,
Based on Tasker's criteria I would nominate PO Tom's essay on "Kroomen" in the Royal Navy, for the months best.

Thanks Barry, just read POT's post quoting that essay by Hyde. Very interesting indeed. I have seen odd sounding nick names to these African auxilliaries named on Africa General Service campaign medals. One I remember was "Beer bottle" or something to that effect.

In one view, the nominee should be the one who started a topic in the year, had the most views in the year and not necessarily answers, that's what brought new people on the forum .. .

Many will be interested and read a topic without answering, simply because it looks just information about a subject he does not know.

This is the number of views that you can see what interests people the most.

So what? is that for 2011?



Cheers

Pascal
