Vol. 5, No. 7, July 2009

It rained almost every day in June, up here. One might think that would leave me with a lot of time to catch up with posting new materials, but it didn't work out that way. There are several new items of interest, but a lot waiting in the queue.

Among other things, I have received records for all the rest of the French 110' subchasers. Some of these new records are posted; more to come.

Best wishes for a happy Independence Day!
