My countryman Rupert Murdoch had to forgo Australian citizenship in order to take out US citizenship (so that he'd be allowed to take over the nice free press of the USA) but wasn't required to forgo US citizenship when getting his Oz citizenship back again in order to sweep up whatever press he didn't already own here. We allow dual nationality as do many countries. It appears that US citizens can also take out citizenship elsewhere but people *becoming* US citizens have to renounce their former nationality to show that they are serious about joining you.

Here's one result. With the sun at something like two o'clock in the plane of the picture and four o'clock in the perpendicular plane, the right side of the cockpit is lit such that the tach and the gun breech support on which it rests are quite well illuminated. It was possible then to match the support with the fuselage green band immediately to the right of Dilthey's left arm above the elbow. This area presents a sufficiently perpendicular area that is subject neither to the lightening effects of reflected glare or the darkening effects of shadow as the fuselage curves away from the light, and additionally appears free from the effects of lens flare affects which seem to be present in the area of the tail. That the support patch should match the fuselage color almost exactly accords with my belief that basic maintenance paint colors were those most often employed in decorative schemes except where this would result in patently wrong results. Doubtless there must be a German equivalent for the ever popular Americanism, "Good enough for government work." Of course, the caveat remains that my analysis--as most of ours here--is based on examination and manipulation of a small, relatively low-grade photoreproduction.

Potter has no information regarding provenance prior to Donald but knows for certain that Donald was in communication with Rodney Gerrard as he, Potter, has copies of the correspondence between those two. Further, Potter states that his example of the putative report is a carbon, presuming the report to have been done in "triplicate," this being one copy of a number of multiples. In my view, the inclusion of fabric swatches on a carbon copy is suspicious. Although he is aware of the issues surrounding items acquired through Gerrard, Potter himself believes the item authentic, but has not undertaken to have it examined by an expert. These details concerning the present whereabouts and history of this document were developed in a telephone interview with Robert Potter today, 28 August. The asking price as reported by the Webmaster of the Rožbud's WWI Aviation Image Archive at http://www.geocities.com/aerodromeaces is $2,500. Any takers? So congratulations to List members who spotted the association with Gerrard. Can anyone tell more about "Barfoot"? Does anyone know of Potter or Donald? And can the article about Gerrard be cited again?

Oswald Watt donated his Bleriot to the French Air Forces at the wars start, uncertain if Britian was going to join the fighting. He enlisted with the French Foreign Legion and flew in French Squadrons. There is a picture of his MF emblazoned with a Kangaroo and the words "Advance Australia" in the book, "Highest Traditions, a history of 2 Sqn RAAF". When Australia sent its Air Service into action Oswald Watt joined the AFC and flew with 1 Sqn in Palestine before taking command of 2 Sqn and taking them to France. He later commanded 1 Wing. All the kangaroo's boomerangs emus etc AFC aircraft wore are attibutable to Watts senes of his Australian Identity. Watts quote on the front page of the AFC page is a classic; "I am an Australian and I don't have any manners." lol. Australia had one Airman in the Foreign Legion anyway. Not a squadron or Wing though like the Americans had. When Watt led 2 AFC over to France, their DH5's apparently had red kangaroos on the nose and red stripes and flight markings. Has anyone seen photos of their Aircraft at Harlaxton or St Omer with these markings? cam AFC - http://members.xoom.com/PointCook/index.htm ______________________________________________________________ Get Your Free E-mail at http://www.prontomail.com ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 28 Aug 2000 20:30:54 -0500 From: Ernest Thomas To: wwi@pease1.sr.unh.edu Subject: Re: Squamble the Squasta!

You determined the association of the previous owner with Rodney Gerrard and that something might be rotten here, and my method was more that of "instinctual". I compared the example of the report at the Voss site to the examples provided by Alan Toelle in his article in C&C Int. "Goodbye to All that Red" and found that the similarity between the confirmed counterfeits and this report that is going for auction to be too close for coincidence. The handwriting style as Dave Fleming noted earlier this month does look to be exactly the same on both. Let slip the dogs of investigative reporting!

My wife was using this special "marker" as she was using her watercolor pencils. I was wondering what it was and needed to find out if I could use it for a better purpose. :-) I used it on the SPAD's prop, to help with the wood color, and it's great! Some people scrape the pencils onto a surface and using a damp brush, brush the colors on. No more. This "marker" consists of - as she tells it - "clear" pigment and is damp. It picks up the pencil color superbly and you can "brush" it on. It keeps a lot of pencil in it, so you use very little of the actual pencil. I only used it on a gloss surface, and have yet to try it on a flat one. I suspect it will work great. LMK if anyone is interested in something like this, and I'll see what I can do to grab some.
