Thanks for these great links ;D
The Royal Navy is a very interesting link.
the link www.royalnavalmuseum.org/library/nbd_page.htm, I think it doesn't work any more.

There have been reports of some of the links not working...

I had already changed one a number of days ago, but have tonight been through them all...they all work  ;) ;D
One more charge and then be dumb,
            When the forts of Folly fall,
        May the victors when they come
            Find my body near the wall.

Bob..  Thanks for the links you sent me...re Military History etc...also. I have noticed  some little symbols next to my Hankins threads, (on the page where all the names of threads are)  what are they for, one is a padlock, the other is a question mark, and the third I cant quite make out...I hope that does not mean I'm "scarey" after all the "hoo-harr_ I caused with not understanding what I was doing..(nice girl..not bright at times) when it comes to computers... I'm still in the learning process, but getting there......thanks,,,, ;D
