    Although I do not celebrate Christmas, it would be an interesting topic to see what everyone got that made them <shudder> happy on christmas day.

    And while no one got anything off me, I did get presents off others;

    An eight DVD boxset of the American War Deparment movies - "Why We Fight" from the 1940s.

    A collection of primary material from the Normandy campaign, "The D-Day Experience" from the IWM. It has diaries, orders, battle maps ..etc. (all real sized, and real looking - but obviously just copies, but it's still good) I'll enter some of the diary entries and such on here, at some point - shame I haven't got a scanner though.

    And an AC/DC DVD - Family Jewels, over 2 'n' a half hours of AC/DC.

    Some good stuff there pD, look forward to the diary entries.

    Well I got and Ipod video as well as 2 WW2 books (one on the Airmen of WW2 - it is a collection of stories and diary entries edited by Laddie Lucas and the other is "Witness to War" by Richard J. Aldrich - diary entries about the war in Europe (haven't seen the one on the Pacific war yet but if I see it I will get it). So I will (if I get around to it) post some (particularly from the Laddie Lucas book ("Voices in the Air").

    You were being lame by not telling us the books you got. Lame or lazy. .. or a combination of both.

    Damn Les, you scored!

    I got the CH flight yoke and rudder pedals for my 'puter along with MSFS 2004 and the Carrier fighters add on. I also got some shirts (F-16 Viper, B-1 Lancer) and three books (1976 Private Pilots Written Test Guide, The American Fighter Plane by Williams and Williams and a Tom Lea Novel [Western]).

    My in-laws gave me an autographed art print of Bud Anderson's P-51B, autographed by Bud himself!

    I guess I scored as well. :)
