» JackB - 21-07-09:24 -- I'm wondering about the effect on non-Forum members. 'Here's my business card'. 'Oh thanks, what's Black Dahlia'? 'Well .... ' Butbut
» Larrynice - 21-07-06:59 -- It's a new platine credit card.

» Danny - 19-07-06:45 -- Believe what you want, Larry. The more points of view, the better.
» Danny - 19-07-06:44 -- Good for you, rather.
» BostonRob - 18-07-12:08 -- Larry, you have been led astray.
» Danny - 18-07-07:46 -- Good for your Larry!
» Larrynice - 18-07-07:04 -- I cannot to believe that Elizabeth Short could be killed by a ''stranger''.
» Larrynice - 18-07-07:00 -- I wait with impatience the new movie Dunkirk!
» Larrynice - 17-07-09:09 -- I saw recently the movie ''The Big Parade'' and the battle scenes had impressed me.
» BostonRob - 16-07-19:28 -- My uncle served in aa American medical unit in WW1. Long ago he gave me an 8 mm Lebel cartridge that looked like a tank had run over it!
» JackB - 16-07-09:57 -- Well, the British army also played a major role in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd battles of Ypres. The last one, in 1917, being also called 'Passchendaele', the Brits sent in 1.5 million men; 275,000 were killed or wounded in the 3 months it lasted. Also, the Somme offensive, which I mentioned below, was launched largely to help take German pressure off Verdun which the French were very bravely holding at terrible cost.
» Larrynice - 16-07-07:04 -- British army had played a major role during Marne battle(1914) and the Home Fleet imposing an effective naval blockage on Germany.The american help in 1917-1918 compensated the russian defection after Bret-Litovsk treaty. Without british, russian and american help during the war, France could have won the First World War ?
» BostonRob - 15-07-19:06 -- The French and the British played the major role, of course.
» JackB - 15-07-18:08 -- Hey Larry, we Brits helped too! July 1, 1916, 7:30 am, the opening attack on the first day of the Somme. British army go 'over the top'. In the first half hour we have 60,000 men hit: 20,000 dead, 40,000 wounded. The worst catastrophe suffered by any army in history.
» Larrynice - 15-07-14:10 -- Sorry,I forgot to salute the Pershing doughboys sacrifice. Probably, without them and their support, the french army do not won the First World War.
» Larrynice - 15-07-06:58 -- Thanks for Broadway and Hollywood too , USA!
» Larrynice - 15-07-06:57 -- Rob, Henry II Plantagenet was a great France enemy!
» JackB - 15-07-04:49 -- Well, there's also the Blues and Rock & Roll. A big thanks for those two, USA!
» Dom.. - 14-07-21:17 -- Godot & Bardot for Jerry Lewis. We won!
» BostonRob - 14-07-15:29 -- Larry, I am descended from Fulk, Count of Anjou and father of Henry II.
