    Default Interest in this project

    Is anyone actually interested in these entries ? Or is it now a case of operating in a vacuum where it's outlived it's sell by date ? I'm curious

    Cheers

    I'll take that as a general no then ?

    Apart from the usual few suspects, no one seems to be looking at the project of late and no one seems to be adding any entries at all. It seems a little silly to talk and write to one's self in public in effect. I can understand that data is now very hard to come by, but when something caused me to notice again the many poorly accounted RCAF entries in Canada, anyone could have looked those up off Ancestry.com and entered them on here for example.

    I'll finish off the page of notes I have prepared as I've already done the work, but then I'll cease to add any more entries after that if there is little or no interest in this project anymore.

    There's no petulance involved, but it does look and feel a bit daft now to me, to be talking to myself as the only person at a party !

    Jon,
    I always browse through them, but it's outside my area of direct interest, so there is little chance of me being able to add anything. I suspect the same applies to the vast majority of forum members.
    You could say the same about almost any thread - relatively few people will be able to have any input.
    I suspect though that we would all like to see this important work brought as close to conclusion as possible. If you stop and leave it to a future researcher to take it forward, so be it. You should be proud of what you have done.

    I read the updates most days, as I have found it very interesting to see causes of death and where. I know that sounds a bit morbid, but I think it shows that servicemen and women were not just dying due to war activity.
    Kind Regards
