A few days ago I received an email by my friend Luftschiffharry who keeps me informed on Zeppelins and also donates the odd historical photograph. He informed me about a very nice detail concerning the Zeppelin crew photo I used in Hobbies and Jobs for Steampunks (three posts down).
The Zeppelin crew belongs to Marineluftschiff L6. The commanding officer, Kapitänleutnant Horst Treusch von Buttlar-Brandenfels, was the only Zeppelin commander to receive the Pour le Merit. Thanks for the information, Harry! It is highly appreciated!
The frequent background infos from Harry and the general Steampunk-links I get from Timo (I have mentioned him earlier) got me thinking.
During the last two years (the blog started in July 2008) the blog has acquired quite a network of people who in one way or the other have contributed to it.
So, I wish to thank all my readers and friends (and readers who are friends) who have in one way or the other contributed to this blog. I cannot name them all (simply because I do not keep emails that long) but you know who you are.
Special thanks go to:
Timo, Luftschiffharry, Dahlia Jane, the crew at the Gatehouse, Clockworker, Lavie Tidhar, all the publishers who sent books for review, The Cog is Dead, Tom Slatter and the crew of Iron Grip: Marauders.
I also would like to thank everybody who has twittered about my articles, has put me into their blogroll or told their friends about the blog. It is really encouraging to see feedback coming in and getting appreciation for the stuff I am doing here.
I would be doing it anyway, this blog is a major leisure-time project of mine, but getting feedback makes it more fun!
So, once again, thanks to everyone who has ever contributed to this blog in one way or the other, I hope we will continue enjoying each other’s virtual company for quite some time to come.
