Another Australian

Post by TGewehr » Thu Sep 28, 2017 11:08 pm

Hello from the Riverland of South Australia.

Have been collecting since I was 8, when I discovered the 'stash' of souveniers that my Grandfather, an Australian western front veteran had in a trunk in his garage...mainly large German shell cases and the remains of his uniform kit.

Like all of these forums I am astounded by the knowledge and collections that exist. Very intimidating!! I am sure I will enjoy my time here.

Best wishes and good collecting!

Peter.

I am fairly new to this forum also, so I really don't have enough longevity to welcome you aboard, but I will do so anyway. Welcome! There is a tremendous amount to learn from the many experts who are the backbone of this forum.

I don't think we need a lot of longevity to say hello – hello and welcome!

Anyone using the name TGewehr needs to post a photo.

I would post one of mine, but the new hosting site is turned to crap already:(

Any way, welcome to the asylum.

Gustaf, I presume you mean a photo of a T-Gewehr rather than one of me!? The former would certainly be more pleasing to the eye! Will see what I can do....

Yes, to be honest, I do not care what you look like, I just want to see your T-Gewehr, I would post a photo of mine, but the webernet really sucks and I can not, if you send me your address, I will send one to you. I have a friend sho has an original WWI tank, and since I can not afford one of those, I needed something that would trump his.
Welcome to the forum. Do not expect to find anyone who is normal here.

Peter, you have to use a picture host from the internet. I use Smug Mug which costs me $4.99 per month. You transfer your pics from your computer to the host, then post here. There is also a tutorial on picture posting on the forum.

I use „picload.org“, 50 MB for free and easy to use.
Maybe also a choice...
Best wishes, Sandy
