This Blog site is an enterprise that has evolved through many attempts by the Editor to re-discover former 1DCLI mates and their family connections via LI Guestbook postings, few of which gain much response. Blogging per se, is a www phenomena that has emerged from the growing need of subscribers to develop ‘conversations’ with other like-minded individuals, who in turn are seeking contact to re-create the past. Often times a memory path is triggered by a small comment, that in turn develops into the bigger picture when viewed by others.
It is a simple exercise to log a Comment and there are many examples peppered throughout this site and related Blog Pages – all with the same objective in mind. However, do not expect the Editor to conduct a research endeavour regarding a former DCLI serviceman’s history. You will need to fulfill the basic criteria of full name, rank, service number, DOB or DOD as applicable and theatre of regimental postings, and a photo where possible. We will do the rest so far as publishing is concerned and then it’s a matter of patience.
Just like fishing! You need a baited hook in the water to possibly get a bite!
