This is a quick greeting from across the pond and a little about myself. I'm 37, ex army and currently studying history at the University of Chester in NW England. I am a bit of a miniature wargamer, especially the civil war, so my love of history and my hobby go hand in hand. This forum seems like the perfect place to indulge these, I have a particular interest in the Vicksburg campaign, with the aim of building a campaign game around it. I am looking forward to talking to you all.
I did my basic with LI and Green Jackets due to an admin snafu, half a platoon of AAC being trained by infantry instructors was a good start for us! I was stationed in North Yorkshire, with the now demobbed 9 regt.
