    I hope I am not breaking any rules but could I suggest to anyone looking for something to read that there is a great and at times very funny story written
    by a present day german officer about his grandfather's chest.
    The story appears in the classic thread of The Great War forum and is under the title of " This is the secret of of my grand dad's trunk " It will take a couple of hours to read.

    It's a classic thread and will take more than two hours to read.

    Definitely more than a couple of hours :) .... and make sure you have a box of tissues handy ( even the macho types needed them !! :cry_smile: )

    Thanks John for the reminder ... I used to wait every night for the next installment - funny how that one thread seemed to bring a lot of nationalities and different opinions together !!

    Annie :)

    I think if he ever decided to make a book out of it - it would become a best seller. I glad others have seen it and enjoyed the story.
