Hi guys , I found your Forum .. just registered and thought I'd introduce myself. I've Collected WW2 Militaria (mostly German & Japanese) for over 40 years...never had time for reenacting but every now and then I'll set up a display for a School or Veterans group (for free of course) I like seeing my collection put to work. These days the Schools over here don't teach that much about WW2 so it's important to keep the History alive. Is there any way to post pictures on this Forum ? I have a few I'd like to share with you. Thanks --Mike
Hi Mike, Welcome to the forum! Yes please share your pictures They need to be hosted online so you need to create a free account with say Photobucket.com and upload your pictures there. Once uploaded, you can link to them from your posts. Good luck and looking forward to your pictures. Thanks. -victor

Hi VeeVee. I registered on that Photobucket and ended up getting a lot of "spyware" attacks ...cleaned the system and found 66 had latched on to my PC ..don't know 100% if that's where they came from but , I'm a little hesitant to use them now. I've seen that some members have attached pictures to the posts ..is there a trick to cut and pasting it on ? That seems to work for them.
Hi Mike, I don't think the spyware is necessarily photobucket. Maybe your browser's pop-up blocker setting is turned off, or you left the checkbox turned on where it allows Photobucket to send you marketing news. Many people use photobucket. If you look at the address links of most of the pictures in this forum, they're hosted in photobucket. Once you upload a picture, it will have a tag whose code you can copy and paste into a forum. This makes the picture appear within your post. Basically here is the format:
paste your image link address here[ /I M G]
Enclose your image link address in the IMG tags.
I put a space in between the I M G's because the forum is interpreting it as a real IMG code and wouldn't display the tags. Just remove the spaces I put in between the I M and G's.

Thanks Martin and VeeVee for helping me out ..I finally got the hang of it ;D I hope everyone enjoys the Rough Rider Doc thread ..describing it without the pictures wouldn't have the same impact. thanks
