Hello everyone,I joined the forum this morning after browsing the site for the past few weeks.I'm a brit living over in the states,born in birmingham and raised just outside brierley hill ,west midlands,served in the 1bn staffordshire regiment from 84 to 91 and after a long break from reading up on the azw my interest has surfaced after many years,I'm currently reading mike snooks book;How can man die better,which is a fantastic book,and i hope to get up to speed on alot of info,and i look forward to asking lots of questions.
Thanks,Phil

Phil,

Welcome aboard! Always good to have the Staffords about (they once provided me a very comfortable Warrior in Basra).

Enjoy the forum. I think you'll find the range of topics very interesting - and not just about the AZW.

Always great banter in the back of a WR - and the lads always seemed to have the world's supply of cold water! (Happily an ability later also achieved by 1 LI! Top cover is hot work.)
