  1. S! All, For Armistice Day, I thought I'd share this video: The writer and reader, Dave Sullivan, is a friend of mine; he's been researching the life and death of Michael Francis Kelly as part of his Master's degree, and since Dave is also an actor, he put some of his research into an imagined monologue by Kelly. This reading was filmed last summer, at the Beaumont Hamel memorial for the Newfoundland Regiment, which was almost annihilated on 1 July 1916 close to the site of the memorial (at one point, you can see Dave gesture over his shoulder towards Hawthorn Ridge, the site of the German machine guns which tore the regiment to pieces, despite the fact that the ridge was mined and supposedly destroyed just before the attack).

  2. Fritz certainly spelled the name right in his submission, so yes, it's certainly their doing. What struck me is that the name is changed for both skins (Alb. D.III and D.Va), so it looks like they did it deliberately, thinking that their version is in fact the correct spelling. It doesn't matter much, of course, but the academic side of me, accustomed to finding out how textual variations find their way into documents, is therefore curious as to what sources they're using.

  3. I was pleased to see the new Jasta 10 skins in the latest pack -- thanks to Butzzell for doing them! Unfortunately they spelled my name 'Maushacke'. That's the way it's rendered in the version of Udet's memoirs that I have. I don't know whether that was a mistake of Udet himself (does anyone have the German text?) or of the translator of the English edition (Richard K. Riehn), but certainly it should be 'Maushake', as in every other source where I've found him mentioned. S! Maus
