    In case you dont know there is a new series of docus on the Berlin battles on the Quest channel beginning at 9pm on Sunday night? It has a British comedian Al Murray (who i asume had relatives who where in the area in ww2.,going over the same ground the Allies trod also I assume more from the Brit and American point of view. In the advert it shows Murray using a flame thrower, just after it show a soldier using one for real in ww2. I hope this means we are going to see a lot of the equipment used in the war for real? Looks like it is right up our street guys.

    I met Al over in Arnhem a couple of years ago. A genuinely nice guy with a real passion for WW2. We met up a couple of times.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Is the Quest Channel a British or European Channel? I wonder if we can get it here in the states through cable? Sounds like a great show. You do have a multitude of history connections Ade! You need to write a book!

    Take care,
