Vol. 7, No. 4, April 2011

Many of you have met or corresponded online with Franklyn Brown, an "elder statesman," so to speak, of the history of WWI subchasers, and to me an invaluable source of support and information over the years. Franklyn moved some time back from his home in Holbrook to a place where he can receive more care, and his son was good enough to save for me a number of papers and files that Franklyn wanted me to have.

One little "find" among these was a set of prints of photographs of his excellent and detailed subchaser model, a set of scans of which were posted recently to the site. The model itself is safely in the hands of his family, who certainly understand the work that went into it, as well as Franklyn's passion for this little corner of history.

My best wishes to Franklyn and his family.
