I read that as 'wasteland'.

 

 April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.

I've read the Wasteland a few times but still had to google it cos I couldn't remember how it went after the first line

Afternoon Everyone :) 

Would it not be a rather cool idea that after the Desert War Group build has ended, we have a modern Desert War Group Build? Ok its a broad idea, (Suez crisis to Afganistan?) but there are a lot more participants that could be modelled in that era? Just a thought :)

Lets be honest the middle east could be ripe from 1946 to the present day so everything from a 109 to a flanker could be used with everything in between including Sherman's, pick up trucks and helicopters so if Steve wants to get it going. I'm in im sure i can find something to contribute with

Interesting video about the Luftwaffe's struggles at the end of the Desert War in Tunisia. 
If you like Ju-52s it will make you weep.

It's not often Transport gets remembered outside of paratroop drops 
No flashy graphics but has some IL-2  game footage

Excellent video, but there's so much info that my simple operating system (brain 0.1) got a bit overloaded at times.

Didn't realise that the Ju52 was used as a bomber in Spain

Yeah there were a fair number of improvised bombers used in the SCW 
IIRC the JU-52 was given one of those interwar ventral dustbin gunner position, with a defensive dorsal M/G and a bomb bay iirc

Some DH Dragon Rapides were fitted with a dorsal gun and bombs were thrown out of the rear door  
Edit: Apparently some Ju-52 bombers also took part in raids on Warsaw in 1939  
Learn something new every day lol

May I join this group?

The GB has ended Milan 
 
Would be great if you posted your build in the WIP section, though.
