The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Reading yesterday about how the Germans created the Olympic Torch relay thingy (thanks Ugly) in 1936,which I was totally unaware of,I then began to wonder about any good things the Nazis did?
    Please avoid mentioning the more questionable aspects of their legacy - I'm looking for positive stuff.

    Where Eagles Dare.

  4. "Coal scuttle" helmets. As used by all wannabe imperialists since.

    On a related point I never realised that the septics wore the same tin lid as the Brits at the beginning of WW2 until I rewatched Tora Tora Tora recently and saw the GIs running about looking like a load of Tommies.
