Re: Details of the Norwegian motor vessel Silva?

Sid, I just wanted to let you know that I’m a “she”, just a little old housewife with a somewhat unusual hobby. My website came about way back in the ‘90’s because my daughter wanted to know what her grandfather (my father) did during the war. I felt I owed it to my children to find out. It was my s...

Re: Test Messages for Philip Morgan

And the same to you and everybody! Hopefully, this year will be the year everything will get back to «normal».

My grandson (now 15, can you believe it?) has had COVID for the past week. So far, the rest of us have escaped. Fingers crossed!

Re: Confirmation that the Malta wreck is HMS Urge

That works - thanks so much! I realized later, I could probably have just googled it too, and saved you the trouble. I just wasn’t thinking.

Platon, I’d love to read about this, but the link goes to a 404 page; am I the only one?

I’ve noticed that too, Phil. Still, I myself am busy every day deleting spam attempts, up to 80 a day.

Re: BEST WISHES

Thank you so, so much, Phil, for thinking about us!

We have been extremely fortunate, have kept electricity throughout (unlike so many others in Houston), and are doing well.

Re: 2021

Thank you, and the same to all of you! 2020 was extremely rough, but in the middle of it all I continue to consider myself and my family among the most fortunate ones.

Re: Question to forum members

Thank you both for taking the time to respond!

Question to forum members

Hi everyone! I was wondering, are any of you using the private messages feature and if so, is it working properly for you? I’m asking because I’ve sent a couple, without receiving a response, which has made me a little suspicious. I’m hoping it’s only a coincidence. But if indeed there is a problem ...
