Bon courage, mes amis!

To all our members and friends …

I wish you all the very best at these strange and difficult times – wherever you find yourselves.

Perhaps it will give you time to read those unread books on your bookshelf about the campaign, investigate the SCS trench maps DVD or Mosquito collection, or even do some online research. There’s lots on this web site to read and some fascinating links to follow. Enjoy!

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and soon after became editor of the Society's journal - 'The New Mosquito' - a role he held until 2008. He then became the Society's web editor, a role he seems unable to shake off. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915 to 1917, mainly in the Struma valley. Opinions expressed in these posts are his and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Society.
