    Roman........AWESOME pic. The man on the left is Willy Reschke, right? Yes, I know I didn't spell his name right. Who is the gentleman seated next to him?

    Marcel,
    I tried to put there this link:
    [​IMG] ,but the result was INVALID FILE...
    Then I downloaded the downsized pic you sent and put it there, but it failed again...
    Strange...
    Maybe here is the problem:
    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).

    Nope, the restriction is only when uploading a pic in your siggy. When linking something, you should be able to put in larger pics, like mine. Let me try:

    Njaco, where did you take the 20th SQDN emblem and the photo of the commemoration in my town from? 2ndBG web sites?
