Recently Marc Terraillon (see the French-language website Navires De La Grande Guerre) contacted me about a project he and some others have undertaken, to post information about the U.S.-built submarine chasers that were sold to France in 1917-1918. This led to some correspondence about resources on the French chasers, and a plan to translate some of this material into English. This month some of this material is online in The Chasers section, and more to come.
Those of you who are model builders will appreciate the re-release of the Glencoe 1:74 scale WWI subchaser model, now (or soon to be) on the shelf in hobby stores. I am by no means a model builder, but might just jump in and build one.
