      G'day all,

      I am a new member of this group so I thought I should introduce
      myself. My name is John Potter and I am an Australian reenactor of
      the Napoleonic and various other periods including Great War, WW2 and
      occasionally ACW. For the Napoleonic period I reenact with the 42nd
      Royal Highland Regt (Aust) and a group called Nelson's Navy, both
      founding member units of the Australian Napoleonic Association (ANA).
      In real life I am an Officer in the Royal Australian Navy and my
      family and I are living in the US on a 2 year exchange posting.
      Naturally I am using the opportunity to attend as many large scale
      events (of whatever period!) as I can without getting myself divorced
      before we go home.. ;-)

      I have recently signed up with Iain Burns and the newly forming US
      42nd unit and would be interested in doing some Royal Navy stuff as
      well if anyone has any suggestions for events in the next 18 months.
      I understand that there will be a large event in Halifax next year..?
      I know that some of the Australian guys are looking into coming over
      so I am hoping to attend that if I can get some more details and hook
      up with an appropriate group.

      Well that's about it from me for the time being. I am planning on
      coming to the 1812 GT in September (I couldn't make the recent
      Brigade Napoleon event) so I look forward to meeting as many of you
      as I can.

      Cheers for now,

      John
