    Quite. For me all-time personal favourites such as the SAAB Draken and Sopwith Camel fell by the wayside: -but that's the way it goes.

      True of course, except for one thing:

      The outcome of the World Cup doesn't depend on which team you and I, and millions of others, might vote for.

(English crew members had better get ready for a tough fight against the combined French and Spanish fleets because that's what England expects! However, Scotland, Wales and Ireland appear to expect nothing so the Scottish, Welsh and Irish crew members can relax below decks if they like!)

        In addition to those members shown above, there are an additional 6 who missed qualifying only by a very narrow margin.
        Each of those members will be contacted by me within 24 hours to discuss their individual situation.

        If you participated in the tournament but your forum name does not appear on the above list, and you do not get a PM from me within 24 hours, this means you have not met the qualification criteria by a substantial margin.
        Please do not be discouraged by this, as your participation and contributions were still valued and we would like to see you all in future polls; and next time around getting a ribbon into the bargain!

        • I thought the Eindecker should have made the finals but it wasn't to be.

                        • Campaign ribbon - revised list of eligible members

                          As previously mentioned, we had six members who came very close to qualifying for their campaign ribbon. I have sent messages to all of them and I received replies from five. In all five of these cases, my finding is that the members in question had reasonable reasons for only being able to participate in 5 rounds instead of the normally required 6.

                          I strongly recommend that these members should receive the ribbon and accordingly I have added their names to the list, the amended version of which is now shown below:

                          I believe this is the final list; and given that we appear to have decided on a ribbon design I would like to request from our Admins that all of the 88 members indicated above should receive the award as soon as is reasonably possible.

                          "England expects that every man will do his duty!" (English crew members had better get ready for a tough fight against the combined French and Spanish fleets because that's what England expects! However, Scotland, Wales and Ireland appear to expect nothing so the Scottish, Welsh and Irish crew members can relax below decks if they like!)

                          • The new ribbon is really nice. Thank you for the outstanding tournament.

                            • I take it this poll has closed... should have joined ACG earlier!
                              My humble 'vote' goes to the Hurricane, for what was a fighter that could seriously be said to have won the Battle of Britain, was 'easy' to fly (in relative terms to the Spitfire (not knocking the Spit), and in the right hand could hold its own with more 'modern' aircraft.

                              I await the next excercise with interest and congratulations to those who took part! Pip! Pip!
