PostSubject: Is this site all talk   Is this site all talk EmptySat Jul 27, 2013 12:38 am

Hi all, i watched with interest the formation of this
site, maybe i was a catalyst for the person/persons.
reason for choosing to leave that ' other place '.and
set up this fantastic resource. but, no im not that
egotistical to really think that...

However i have cautiously dipped my toe into this domain
and was met with common courtesy and friendliness..

My concern is this..if you look at my posts. concerning rare
items ie Kenneth Griffith's B.A.H. and Booth vc which had
people theorizing about how to obtain a view of these very
items.. i said, I HAVE GOT THESE ( sorry for shouting ).
if any of you want a dvd copy of any of them i will apon a
P.M. send you both absolutely free. gratis.inc pp. just with
one proviso. that person selects and does the same for any
other interested party. a good chain. its so good to share.
but, if this site is maybe just dealing in the virtual cyber-
space then reality does not apply. so you never even saw
this..                                             regard Les.

Hi Les
Would love copies, sorry I didnt get the impression you were offering copies.
I will PM you an address, Im more than happy to pay any costs involved.
A big issue with this forum is not only with what visibly takes place but the amount of friendshios struck up and carried on into other forms of communications. There are a number of authors and historians involved on the forum under various guises and the facility to share info with them is of immense value, so yes in a way the forum is all talk, but so much more.
Cheers Mate:Salute:

Hi xhosa2000.
I may be wrong in saying but I've tried to find ' Symbol Of Sacrifice ' , and from memory , I was told that the only copy or what was left of it was incorporated into ' Black As Hell , Thick As Grass '' . Happy to be corrected .
Cheers 90th.

impi, thank you for that
it was on a knives edge
i recall that when he was
suspended the topic was
the exit of Melvill and
Coghill from the battle-
field quite a lively debate
i remember..two days after
Pete's suspension i wrote
a post defending him to the
max..of course i was booted
off.and quite right to..that
other place was in my opinion
riddled with suedo class con-
tious sycophantic dinosours
(personally my own opinion)

Of course there were\are people
of excellent calibre there as well
inc many respected historians
and amateurs as..but i still
although blocked visit the forum
with my nose press up against the
window pane to see whats being
debated.yawn nothing has changed
the mad colonel is still bullying,
the site will go because it has stood
still,moribund. right end of what turned
into a mild rant. all opinions are my own.

Lastly COLL if you read this please join
this friendly democratic site.you were
very much the stage brigand, and i miss
your enthusiasm very much. sorry impi
none of this was aimed at you.its just
that ive wanted to say this for a while

Salute I love this man's humour.
Just to make sure, I re-read the topic inquestion. And rightly enough Mr Knight stood shoulder to Shoulder with Pete unfortunately they both fell.
Just as Melville and Coghill did!

So Xhosa. You have dipped your toes, in this domain, you hit the ground running with your posts to date. Have you formed an opinion yet! agree is this site all talk, or just a place where we enjoy meeting up, having the occasional row which normally ends up in the ring, but mostly friendly banter.

agree  My doors open! That's if you like trawling the net, looking for bits of information that may have been missed. Or new participants of the Zulu war that has been long forgotten!
