The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that member numbers have gone down from 250 to 195. What has happened is that those that got through the initial vetting procedure but were subsequently blocked from accessing the site were still showing up as members. They have now been deleted. Since the new forum was set up we have stopped over 2000 malicious attempts to hack into the site, however when you realise that the US State Dept was recently hacked and personnel records taken anything seems possible.

I have been promised photos from a few of you so please pull finger and email them to me. With best wishes for a good summer and let's hear from a few new faces on the forum. Frederick Peall

Freddie, we owe you a great debt of thanks, I know some of us have said so in the past but your work and dedication to the site is hugely appreciated. I guess you must have left the Carabiniers before I joined them in Muenster in about 1970  so we never met, perhaps you were still serving and at ERE or maybe you were IN Muenster and I never knew it!!  Anyway, having watched the SCOTS DG site fade into oblivion after so many would be contributors were enticed to Face Book, its content stale and out of date for a great part, I know we need regular contributors to keep this site alive and well. As with most sites, lots more people read the posts than actually contribute. Of course posting on a social media site is not everyone's cup of tea and I know from some of my local chums that not everyone feels comfortable to do so. BUT; as I always say to them, there are no grammar police, no spelling wizards, no pedants waiting here to catch folk out or criticize. It's just a great opportunity for some chatter, some crack, some "getting the beast off the back" ranting, some exchange of views, news and "whose." So I echo your encouragement to everyone to, even occasionally, get their fingers dancing on the old QWERTY keyboard and pass on our thanks once again. Best Wishes, David Fullard
