    Welcome to the Armchair General forums, Tom.

    I can't help you, but I'm sure there are some Australians here who can. Good luck!

          Hello, everyone. I joined yesterday, and thnk this is a cool forum.
          I'm a Bulgarian and naturalized American, curruntly reside in Varna, Bulgaria, and work as an English Teacher.
          I;m probably going to be doing here more reading that writing, since military history is not my strong side, but I'm curous and will probably stick my neck in more than one room.
          My main interest is Ancient History, and I like bios...being prone to psychologcal profiling eft and right.
          This is probably enough for now, thanks to all that wecomed me and helped me to get oriented in a new for me net space.
