|"I was born in Germany in 1979, but since 1985 I live in Hungary.
I am interested in any kind of warfare since I left elementary school,
especially WW2, not only in the technological aspects, but also the
history. Itís good to know, why one part lost a battle, not only when
and how. I was always fascinated from that beautiful warships in WW2.
Iím also a quite good photographer, but I refuse to work with digital
cameras. I donít really like, that some machine tell me, what I have to
do, and how I have to do this. "

"I was born in
Ryde long before the advent of digital photography (or
digital anything else) and was
sent to sea (not unwillingly) at the age
of 16. I served my
apprenticeship with BP Tankers and joined the RFA
in 1956, my first ship being
RFA Robert Dundas. I progressed through the
ranks and was promoted to
Chief Officer of RFA Dewdale in 1973
. After serving in all
classes of RFA in most parts of the world including
the Falklands conflict, I
retired in 1990 at the age of 58.
I spent the next seven
years as Tourist Information Officer with the IOW
Council - working in the
summers and holidaying abroad in the winters.
I finally retired in
1997 and took up golf and computing, both of which I
infuriating but challenging."
