Re: New to me. Glycine Combat 6

I like these Glycine field watches. I've been thinking about getting the Combat 7 because it's smaller, at 41mm, and would be a better fit for my wrist size. https://www.amazon.com/Glycine-Combat-Vintage-Automatic-GL0238/dp/B07G4D25ZY Ever thought of getting one of there originals from there heyday...

Re: I collect stuff that goes with my Militray watches a few pilot wings

Well I added some stuff this week to go with my US Navy ships clocks. I bought two climometers they had them on the bridge of the ship. It told you in degrees how bad the ship is rolling and in a typhoon you see it do some weird stuff. https://i.imgur.com/XO1FUTe.jpg https://i.imgur.com/9ipKC9M.jpg ...

Re: Bee's

My neighbor does this hobby glad he does it his bees do a good job of pollinating my apple trees. Apple tree's need different type apple tree's and be cross pollinated to produce apple's. Looks like a good hobby. The last two years I had a bumper crop of apples due to those bee's.

He started out in PBY's in the Aleutian's Islands when the Japanese invaded them. Later he transferred to Avenger torpedo aircraft on aircraft carri...
