    Good Day All:

    Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself.

    I've never been in the forces but am interested in militaria, and keep myself informed on current world events. Also am relatively well-read on WW1 and 2. Finally, the reason for my nickname is that my last name is "Mowatt", as in the Canadian author "Farley Mowat", though my surname is spelled with only one "T".

    Look forward to interesting conversations,

    Farley

    Another great read of FM's was Grey Seas Under: if you like sea stories especially. It is the story of a tugboat called the Franklin, which operated in the Atlantic salvaging torpedoed ships during WW2. Some of the episodes depicted illustrate the great lengths to which men went to save these ships, their crews, and their valuable cargoes for the war effort.
