    Hi ya guys and gals :D, where have i been in the last how many years this site/forum has been running, in the threads I have looked at and the many unique photo and video's, pleased I did find this site.

    How I found it - this site, I was doing research for a drawing/art work about PO Lloyd Trigg VC - the link
    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/ww...in-who-shot-down-nz-vc-winner-found-7724.html

    I was so pleased to see "syscom3" posting this detail which really put my mind or brain case to create an action piece giving an idea off how both sides really showed courage and how dynamic this well known, or least to the few in the battle with only a few who survived put the attacker into a catagory placing the aircraft crew in such a high regard, earning the VC and crew acknowledgement.

    Ill be stopping here regular now, I have so much i have to see.

    Cheers, Ian 8)

    All you need to start an asylum is an empty room and the right kind of people. :)

    Hi Vic , last time I was in Canberra was in 1998 but the first was the most exciting, visiting the War Memorial Museum and it was shock when i went down stairs to find the first thing that greeting me was a ship-yard model of a Japanese 100 year old warship .. I fell in love - the model was outstanding but off course it was a full day but I seemed to keep going back to study this model.
