I am just writing a hello to all of you. One of my main interests for a number of years has been the 'small wars' of the Victorian era; in particular those in India. I stumbled accross this forum some time ago and have decided to take the plunge and join (yes, this does mean I have a question for all you in cyber space!).
As part of my interest in the Victorian period I collect bits of Victorian militaria, mainly swords. I have a keen interest in medals of the period also, but as my interest is not matched by funds all I do is look read online and visit museums etc when I can.
I hope that as well as learning from this forum I can in time become a productive participant!
