Special X # 12: WWII in the Pacific

A place for Sladists to share their thoughts on Michael Slade and his work...

Postby PohlSE » Fri Nov 25, 2005 3:34 pm

Double post alert! :)

Ok, having a lot of relatives around for the holidays makes for a deeper pool of information:


Regimental and division flags my father suggests. Also, every emblem from every unit.

Metals and patches are a must, everyone agree. Uniforms and Kamikaze headbands were suggested by my uncle. His wife's father flew bombers during the WWII pacific campaigns, and she suggests photos and or parts of planes. Also she thinks they would have examples of AA shells from both sides.

I then placed a phone call to my Father-in-law, who served in the marines and fought in Korea, and he suggested that if the convention hall was big enough they might have a vehicle or two. Jeeps in particular and maybe a tank.

On the vehicle topic; my uncle wants me to point out that Japan didn't begin constructing motorcycles until after WWII. (Why this is pertinent I don't know)

Anyway, that's what the "think tank" here has to offer.

...And it has gotten everyone interest now. :)

PoulSE,

In for a penny, in for a pound.

I'll use it all: the conventional hall is taking shape in my mind.

MM,

I have a book called The Timechart History of the World. If it's the one your brother has, I agree, it is a very fascinating book. Is this the one your brother has?

MM,

I first heard about the book when my brother and sister-in-law had borrowed a friend's copy of it. A year or so later I saw it in the local Chapters store and bought copies to give as Christmas presents to the whole family.

This friend of theirs has 3 copies of the book. One to browse through, and the other two are displayed on the wall of his study. One with one side spread out across the wall, and the other with the reverse side displayed across the wall. It really makes a fantastic display.

Now we return to regular programming.

Sorry.

My uncle called them "judy" bombers. I don't suppose that would have worked as a title, huh? He was on a night carrier and used to tell us about how the judy bombers screwed up everyone's minds. In fact, his carrier was hit by shells from a friendly ship trying to defend his carrier from those diving devils.

Again, sorry for jumping the gun on you.

Slyragz,

No, that's the fun of the Board. It's like a whodunit. It's no fun if someone doesn't have a chance of solving the puzzle. I'd have announced the title in four more days to kick off the New Year, but you were too sharp for me, and you win that round of cat and mouse.
