I have been away from the hobby for a while for the usual reasons of family etc. Also, in the time I have been away, I have moved to Australia, but I have recently picked up the MENG kit of the Whippet medium tank. Construction has started, and I will try and keep this thread up to date with my progress. You can also follow the build on my website. Ross
HMS Timbertown was an internment camp in Holland during the first world war for 1500 sailors of the Royal Naval Division There is a television programme still available, and for a while yet, on the BBC iPlayer (27/02/2015). http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04kg1q1 The programme is in Gaelic, but don't worry there are English sub-titles. It's rather interesting and describes some of what happened to these sailors. Little known facts such as how sailors had UK leave but had to return to their Dutch prison are dealt with. If you don't normally watch the BBC Alba service, (and I can't say as I do), have a look.
