    In a box piled up in an office of an old trucking company building about to be demolished I found (yes ok going to the tip with my old man was one of the highlights of my childhhod) some old magazines
    from 1974/75 called 'Warfare'. All in good condition with great A3 size posters of battle action scenes and my favourite is the copies of recruiting posters from the day. Please my german and russian
    friends could you help me out with some translating? Due to being raised with "It's a nice day so get out of the bloody house" computers generally don't like me so someone will probably have to re size
    photos I'll now try to upload.

    This was the first time I have uploaded photos since recent site upgrade and it was heaps easy and they didn't need re sizing after all. I have more unshown and am happy to help out if people would like copies but they are A3 size and laminated. Maybe I could take a photo and email folks. Would not quite be poster material but screen saver worthy. Anyone interested please feel free to contact me. It was a good find but it'd make me
    happy to share them with others who like them.
