I was invited by a Belgian young student, who was a mod here at that time, but i never saw him again ever since....
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
I came here for the wildly unexciting reason that I was hunting down some mundane militaria award specification or criteria that I was researching online at the moment, and the trail brought me Here. Rather than lurk, I decided to join the Forum and put at least a bit of the experience and knowledge I'd accumulated over the years to some Good use for once and help both the new collectors as well as the more advanced. Like others, I was a member at WAF also, but found This Forum to be Much more pleasant and less unsociable as opposed to the "run by a select few" Other forum who never seemed to give a damn what anyone Else had to say or contribute about much of anything there. Hobbies like this require endless little essential bits of what to look for and what to avoid, so I figured if I could help even a few decent people keep their collections going in the right direction, why not?
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Well said William.

In August of 2009 I picked up two of Third Reich flags and needed to know
if they were good or not - turned out they were 4th Reich ! - which lead
me to WRF. After joining, I posted some other things from my collection
that I had questions about, and soon found there were lots of folks
here with similar interests. I do not use any other forums.........
i was trying to find some information on german helmet decals and came across this site. and have never looked back. but i never thought i would join a forum in a millon years, but its great. and it helps to talk about all the stuff we collect. the misses and freinds are not very intrested. thanks
Wow, do you guys ever look to the left of the screen and surprise yourself with how long you have been here? February 2010... I was a senior in high school. Now I am almost finished with college. How time flies...
Adrian, I can't believe I was here two months before you were! I always thought you were one of the founders!
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
