Hello from a collector/researcher

Discussion in 'User Introductions' started by rcm_collection, Nov 25, 2020.

  1. Hello all -- I've frequented the forums in my many searches and have only just joined. My main interest is Korean War, which I began collecting U.S. years ago and have expanded into British and Commonwealth. That has expanded to other post-war conflicts as well, but of course with so many of these servicemen being WWII veterans I am led down that path as well. I collect named and identified items and research to the fullest I possibly can. I'm sure you'll see me posting soon with inquiries on where to look next. Hopefully I can contribute just as much as I seek.

    You're welcome to explore my website where I feature my efforts:

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Welcome to the site, Robert.

    I've made no special study of the war beyond looking into the Glosters (see here: http://ww2talk.com/index.php?thread...o-the-gloucester-valley-battle-monument.84938), but I'm currently resident in ROK with Korean in-laws, so if you need anything specific, information-wise, I may be able to help.

    Edit: that's a very attractive site you have assembled--my compliments.

    Dear Robert, welcome.

    And thank you for an excellent website, especially the diverse selection that you have here;

    https://www.rcmcollection.com/Archives

    From Gordon Highlanders journals (newsletters) to Commonwealth/Empire driving licences, from Civil Defence in Old Sarum to Kenya and Korea.

    A superb collection of stuff, thanks for keeping it available. I don't doubt that it is, and will be, appreciated by many members of WW2 Talk.

    Kind regards, always,

    Jim.

  9. Thanks all for the kind comments. I am happy to repost items on the forums here as I see there is a resource tab at the top. Color slides like the ones Keith posted are incredible and I would be pleased to include them as a photo set with credit to you. I have started expanding a bit like this. I think I need to upgrade soon as load times sound like they are slow and I have no intention of putting less on there.

    Thanks,
    Robert
