What weapon\weapons system is the thing in your picture? It look like a late XIX rapid fire gun carriage and barrel witrh a scaled down naval turret... I have seen my share of military weirdness, even the little willie, but never seen that.
thank you for your offer and your nice comments upon our website! We are currently overhauling the German section of the website and our main concept, so no English translations are scheduled for the next few months. But it's great to know that there are people out there willing to have a look at the translations here and then :) This is really helpful and protects our English readers from too much eyestrain ;)
I'm trying to get a room at Lancaster Host for the upcoming WBC in Aug '08, but I was told it is full for that week. Now I'm hoping to find someone who has reserved a room but intends to cancel. Where do you think is the best place (website) to post a note on this?
Thanks! I think I chose well, too. When she had her Bat Mitzvah, her parents told her they could take a trip anywhere she wanted. Her choice? A Civil War battlefield tour. When she told me that story, I knew she was the one for me!
It doesn't appear that I posted the link to my Greece photos here. So far I have Thermopylae and Chania photos up on Flickr. The link is http://www.flickr.com/photos/14953024@N06/collections/72157604705139245/. I enjoyed the War Museum, but I visited that a couple of years ago. We had the chance to talk with some soldiers who were also visiting. I didn't even remember that it had that name :)
By the way, Rob, congratulations on your marriage! You must have picked the right woman if she went to the War Museum with you.
Hey Kaarin, I just got home from Greece last week too. We must have been in Athens at almost the same time. Looks like you already saw my photos in the Air Assault on Crete folder.
How did you like the War Museum in Athens? We spent one morning there although I didn't take any pictures. I remember thinking that a better name for it would be The Greek Museum of British and French Arms Exports.
Thanks for your kind words and offer. I am really interested in going back to WBC this year and defend the title. I miss you guys too. I will try to post a nice picture sometime soon.
