The more observant among you will notice a slight change to the Forum - there is now a 'Google Custom Search Box'...

Our computer genius, Dan, has kindly put this on so that we can all search the whole forum easier than ever before.

To use, simply click on the button, type in a keyword (eg. a name) and click the 'magnifying glass.

The search will bring up every reference to your keyword on the Forum and Gallery

Happy hunting...

Great stuff!

It would have been dad's birthday today so I put his name in (George Harris and George Francis Harris) - and found loads of stuff.

'Today' being the 5th - when I typed this.

If I have praised my comrades too highly I make no apology, for they were beyond all praise.

It works great Nick. Thanks Dan. I will admit I didn't notice the difference at first - too early in the morning when I'd checked in before

This search box now seems to only appear on certain pages.

Is this deliberate, or has there been a technical glitch?


Remembering Tom McCormack, died of wounds, Bill Hughes and Syd Murdoch both captured, all at St Nazaire and all Liverpool Scottish/QOCH & 5(Scottish) Troop, No 2 Commando. Wonderful company & welcome guests billeted with my grandfather in Ayr in 1941-2.
