Re: Shipwreck survivors/ historians/ experts please help

Warsailors.com is fine. I’ll have to add though, that the credit is not all mine; so many people (too numerous to name them all here) sent me original documents over the years, I just transcribed them, or summarized them. And a lot of the info came from books (named in my sources at the bottom of ea...

Re: Shipwreck survivors/ historians/ experts please help

Hmm - goodness, it’s been so long since I worked on this, but I usually named sources at the bottom of the pages, or sometimes at the top of the page (I’ll probable say something like “received from”). I probably have the letter somewhere in my archives but hard to get to right now. I imagine it ori...

Re: Shipwreck survivors/ historians/ experts please help

There’s a group in Norway who are involved in registering all the seamen and women who served on Norwegian ships during the war. They may know of someone who served on Skytteren. You’ll find a contact address on this page https://www.krigsseilerregisteret.no/en Worth a try. They also collect documen...

Re: HMS Stoke

Your last sentence really hit home for me. When my daughter, many years ago, asked about her grandfather’s (my father’s) war service, I realized I knew next to nothing. I decided I owed it to my children to find out more. It would have been so much easier if I had asked him about it while he was sti...

Re: Question to forum members

Very glad to hear that! We had quite an attack on the forum yesterday but I was able to stop it fairly quickly. Hopefully, we’ll be left alone for a while. But the price we pay is that anyone who wants to register now has to be approved by me, and I don’t like that feature, but it had to be done, at...

Re: Question to forum members

:D I’m glad you’re neglected in this case. Looks like our forum has been attacked today, so much so that I’ve had to turn on the “registration approval” setting again. This means that anyone who wants to register has to be approved by me before they can register and post. I’ve already deleted around...

Re: Question to forum members

:evil: Thanks so much, Hugh. I assume you’ve deleted it already, but can you remember the sender? Did anyone else receive spam pm’s? We now have 10 new registrations to the forum in the last two days; this is an unusually high number. None of these 10 have posted messages to the forum itself. In add...

Re: Question to forum members

Trust me, Phil, they get deleted even before breakfast, thereby sometimes depriving you of that good laugh! Sorry, not sorry.

Thank you for being here, we go back a long way, through several versions of the forum, you and I.

Re: Question to forum members

If I understand you correctly, this would be a separate section, concentrating on topics other than ships? If so, I’m not sure that would be a fit, since this entire website has to do with ships and seamen. Besides, I’m sure there are plenty of other such general forums “out there”. Also, I would wo...

Question to forum members

I’ve been wondering, has anyone been sending you spam via private messages through the forum? I’ve been seeing several new registrations here and there that are clearly up to no good, and these get deleted as soon as I spot them. But my problem is that there are others where I can’t be sure, so I’m ...

Re: Voyage Lists on Warsailors.com

Jakob, try the links now (my son to the rescue, very quickly and effectively).

Thank you again for letting me know, without your mentioning it, I never would have known.
