    l spent a few idle moments this morning delving with Google.....
    A diary quote caught my eye. http://www.aaac.100megsfree5.com/ww2...remembered.htm

    [79] [From the diary of Regimental Sar-Major Jock Reid:]
    On 4 July Staff Sergeant Alan Collyer sailed from Port Moresby for Buna in the schooner Gili Gili with B Company's stores.
    Gili gili was a boat as well as the harbour at Milne Bay.

    Then http://www.northqueenslandatwar.com/...amendments.pdf

    25SEP42 KELTON(S-11) departed Cairns for Port Moresby.

    KELTON was US Army Small Craft.

    Do you think you're reincarnated from a WWII participant?

    l've maintained an in interest in human history, as a teen l read a book detailing the war of a Japanese combat pilot named Saburo Sakai who fought in New Guinea during 1942. The Japanese military conquests during the first quarter of 1942 were stunning.

    l stumbled across a request for details of an American pilot MIA, who fought Sakai.
    There are geographical errors in the detail of his loss. My interest was aroused.
    There is a terrific story surrounding this pilot's squadron as it deployed, organised and entered battle. l have learnt much and yet the mystery of Cpt. Paul G. Browns loss remains.
    During deep sleep IT came to me and the future of processing is clear.
    Future processors will primarily be digital tuning radios acting as grid computing nodes.
    Voila. See ya in hell.

    A terrific read. Beautifully written and a real lesson in the written art.

    Now you know that more than two lines of writing gets em confused down here.
    So we'd like a two line summary please.

    A class of five-year old school children return to the classroom after playing in the playground during their break time.

    The teacher says to the first child "Hello Becky, what have you been doing this playtime?" Becky replies "I have been playing in the sand box". "Very good," says the teacher "if you can spell 'sand' on the blackboard, I will give you a biscuit". Becky duly goes and writes 's a n d' on the blackboard. "Very good" says the teacher and gives Becky a biscuit.

    The teacher then says "Freddie, what have you been doing in your playtime?" Freddie replies "Playing with Becky in the sand box". "Very good" says the teacher. "If you can spell 'box' on the blackboard, I will also give you a biscuit". Freddie duly goes and writes 'b o x' on the blackboard. "Very good" says the teacher and gives Freddie a biscuit.

    Teacher then says "Hello Mohammed, have you been playing in the sand box with Becky and Freddie?" "No" replies Mohammed, "I wanted to, but they would not let me. Every time I went near them they started throwing sand at me and calling me nasty names".

    "Oh dear" says the teacher. "That sounds like blatant racial discrimination to me - I'll tell you what, if you can spell 'blatant racial discrimination' I will give you a biscuit".
