Welcome, Plampers. Are you also into Nappies?  Undecided

Anyhoo, looking forward to hearing about your French & Indian Wars and ACW adventures in 10mm.  Smiley

Welcome, Plampers. Are you also into Nappies?  :-
There you go! We were all thinking it, but Westie had to go there.

Plampers, you may now have to explain your monica - unless you are in fact Jan Plamper, Professor of History at Goldsmith College?

My FSN comes from my name, "Frederick Simeon Nobbs", which is also why I am referred to as "Nobby". Why I get f***wit, t***bundle and a***wiper is beyond me. It may be my fine wit, my tank bundle and my frequent victories with Allied forces making me an Axis wiper.

There are some other interesting stories behind forum member names.
"Westmarcher" thinks he's a reincarnation of a Mongol warlord. Always trying to raise the Eastern hordes is our Westie. Since he lives in Argyll, he's drowned 3 hordes already, and hasn't quite worked out the problem with his plan.
"D_guy" is a very specialist guitar player. He only plays one chord, but plays it better than any other in the whole of the continental United States. (There is a 12 year old girl in Hawaii who's better, but he won't admit it.)
"Le Man" comes from his time as no 1 male escort in Brussels. Ladies would ring up and ask for "le man". 'nuff said.
"Dave" is ex-RN. A submarine commander in fact, and very posh.
"Orcs" ... well you just need to see a picture.
"Techno" is the suprising one.  He may seem mild mannered, but in his younger days he was leader of an elite special forces unit. Ruthless with the enemy, he always exhorted his team to "take no prisoners". Obviously, this became "take no ..." and so "techno ... " in the burr of his troops, as most of his team were from Arbroath. Techno knows 43 ways to kill a man (and 44 ways to kill a woman) with a Dremmel, and spends a lot of his time refining his skills on himself.

Don't let fsn's origin story fool you, Plambers. He is so fixated on tanks that "fsn" is the contraction of "fssssssnnnnn", the sound the main gun of a Centurion makes when its charge fails to ignite.

There has been another body of opinion that the sound is actually that of a Runcornian ruminate after sating itself on sour hay. I used to fully embrace this opinion but recently fsn posted a video in which I learned that Centurions are muzzle-loaders!  I am now firmly committed to the first.

Also, if you haven't guessed already, much to the consternation of the Internet Forum Railroad Commission, threads tend to derail on this forum quite frequently.   Wink

Redstef, Not far from Maldon! About 20 min from Chelmsford! Yourself?

Wotcha!

Back in the day (end of the 60's), I spent two happy years -well, as happy as school gets- at Maldon Grammar School before moving back to Southend...yep, another Essex lad and proud of it. Now living just across the Thames in beautiful Kent.
