View Full Version : New hand on deck
To introduce myself (some will no doubt be shipmates of mine on other forums) ...
I am a lifelong civilian with very poor sea legs, but also a keen biographer of naval, military and air force types.
My only naval ancestor was my great-uncle, who attained the rank of Ensign in the Imperial and Royal Austro-Hungarian Navy - hence the avatar.
Trust I can be of some use over time. :)
Welcome aboard mate its a great site you will enjoy it tell us a bit about yourself have fun,
Welcome to the forum William.
Wwe are sadly in need of posts in the Austro-Hungarian section so I hope you will be the catalyst for the solution to this problem.
Howdy William, good to have you here.
Welcome to the forum William. Good to have you aboard!
Welcome to the forum, William.
I am very impressed with your avator, and would like to know what it is. The Austro-Hungarian naval ensign or the Austro-Hungarian flag perhaps. The other interest is the coastline of the Austro-Hungarian empire, the Baltic, North sea, the Med. as all navies need a coastline. (excluding the Swiss with the America's Cup!)
Hi gents..I'm Big Daddy Popeye. Some of you may know me from other forums. I served with the USN for 20 years. All on carriers and Naval Air Stations.
Most anything you want to know about carriers or the USN I can find out or have an answer for you!
Happy to have found this forum:)
Welcome popeye! It's good having another American on-board!
We look forward to lots on the USN.
Perhaps for starters you could read the USS Barnes thread? The lady needs help.
Welcome to the forum Popeye.
It sounds as though you will be a great asset.
