Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

Not a pretty sight, seeing folks losing their daily hit of Tank Porn
There's something for everybody on the internet.

Ah,the good women of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry, Princess Royal’s Volunteer Corps................

On service I was once accosted by a sergeant one night who asked for my assistance in finding Two Queens. That could have gone horribly wrong.

Glad you're OK and taking a break. Well deserved I think. Also really glad the thread isn't dead, your supplying a bunch of addicts at this point I think.
I'm sorry but I really feel that I must take issue with your suggestion that some of us have become addicted to this thread.

Speaking for myself I can assert with total confidence that I am not even remotely addicted to this thread or Astrodragon's thread for that matter. I can quit these threads any time I want !

I um just don't feel like it . I certainly don't have any problems with leaving this thread . I certainly don't spend ages obsessing about it . Because that would be ridiculous wouldn't ?

Yes , I have absolutely no thread addiction issues whatsoever. No really . I really really don't. Honest . :p

The first step towards rehabilitation is admitting one has a problem.:p
 
You know the first sign you have a problem is denying that you have one.

Then again that might be a marketing gimmick by shrinks as it would mean everyone has a problem they can charge you large amounts to treat but only some admit it.
 
I only have a problem with excellence............................................I can't get enough of it! I include this thread in that category and I'm happy to wait until Allen decides to carry on as it's defiantly worth the wait. Should Allan decide to call it a day, so be it. He has enriched my life for several months with his well thought through story and I am very greatfull to his allowing me to share this journey with him.

Thanks Allan
 
I'm fairly sure that the forum record for longest thread with least number of story posts was "From the frying pan" in the fandom section, but there's still a lot of discussion here for every bit of story. I do believe Allan has indicated that it's a bit of a slog getting through all of them every time, so keeping off-topic discussions and retreads of already discussed-to-death-topics to a minimum might be considered.
 
Under normal circumstances I have a holiday in late January/February when I get a chance to give this constant researching/writing a rest, read some novels, and generally just have a complete break.
Because of the nature of the lockdown I haven't had such a break, and have been sorely missing it. So updates will begin again soon-ish, now that I've had a couple of weeks of not doing this.

Open a gofundme for Allan's vacation fund.

An excellent idea and one I might emulate soon. I am frickin shattered. Too much work, not enough time off, lockdown on the brain.
 
Just re-read this over the last few days & one thing I noticed in the examination of the captured Panzers was that the 75mm HE rounds were mentioned but nothing about any HE rounds for the Pz III. I know the lack of HE for the British 2lber is frequently brought up but did the Germans have the same problem with the 37 & 50mm tank guns or did they rely on always having a Pz IV in company?
 
It has been a weird year - a lot of people have lost jobs, or been put on furlough; but for a lot of us who have been lucky, our jobs have been busier (last year was the busiest my firm has been), but with no real chance to have any sort of normal break. Weird times for all.

Agreed --- we went to pandemic mode in late January 2020 and have been pushing straight through since then. My group's funding has never been better and our outputs have been insane. At the same time, I have not taken more than 2 vacation days in a row in the entire year and now I am getting close to hitting the carry-over cap. And I can't find a way to currently justify taking a week off just yet.
