I am sorry if this thread offends or upsets you in any way. I did a quick search of the forums before starting the thread and discovered numerous pages of Navy-related posts (and numerous more for RCAF/RAF/RFC an other non-Army topics). I was honestly unaware that these forums were intended to be exclusively Army. If that is the case, then I have no problem with this thread being deleted.
As for posting a "plea to purchase", once again I did not realize I was out of line. I have seen many others come on these forums looking for help in locating various items of militaria. I am a small-time collector who does not have access to many militaria dealers or shows. I largely rely on making connections online in order to find many of the items I am looking for. In the past, I have received a lot of help locating items from members of these forums and am very grateful for their help. I have also been able to help other members find items they were looking for.
Why the complaint now? Is it possible that your problem is less about the nature of the post (there have been hundreds of others over the years about whick you have not bothered to speak up), and is more of a personal issue you have with me? If the latter is the case, then I suggest a public forum is not the most appropriate place to air your greivances.
Once again, if my thread is inappropriate for these forums then may it please be deleted.
