100th Post
Well this is my 100th post, and I felt I just could not let such a milestone go past without a few words.

Firstly I would like to say a BIG thank you to both Tony and Philip who jointly run and maintain this Forum. Behind the scenes there is a huge amount of work to ensure the site remains fresh, interesting and usable, I for one appreciate it, as Iím sure do other Members who are regular visitors to the site.

Perhaps the real benefit of such a specialist forum is to those who discover that an ancestor was once a Coastguard and are looking for a one-off piece help to take their family history a little further forward; or is that back?

Much of the help I have been able to offer in many of the previous 99 posts has come from experience gained from doing research for my own medal collection, but I get real satisfaction from being able to use this knowledge to assist others in what is a very specialist area of research.

So hereís to the next 100 posts, and the continued success of the Forum.

Regards to All

Hello Martin
Both Philip and myself would like to thank you for your 100th post and all the work you put in to answering our Forum enquiries. A lot of your time and detailed reserch has culminated in giving Forum readers fresh knowledge of their Coastguard ancestors, the location of many appropriate sources, but, best of all, the incentive to keep on trying to find those elusive forbears of the past.
You are a very good, and welcome friend to the site and we look forward to the next anniversary which we know will not be long in coming.
Tony and Philip.

The Forum is what it is because of your superb input.

Kudos and thanks. Grin
I run the site and provide technical back up. I know nothing about Coastguards.
Better late than never - as one of the many novice members that you helped to get started on coastguard ancestor research I can only say that I would not have gotten where I am today without you! You are one of those rare breed who always finds time to help others and are generous with your own time consuming acquired knowledge. Many thanks Martin and "Bem haja"! (I'll give you a clue - it is portugues)
