Become a Supporter

This website is offered free to use. It always has been.

But it does cost money to operate. Domain renewal fees, hosting and a website security service add up and are on a rising trend.

These costs are covered to some extent by the small amount of advertising and affiliate links that I allow on site.

But you can now do your part: become a supporter. For the price of a cup of coffee each month, you will greatly help in keeping the site afloat.

Latest supporters news

Prize draw: As part of my thanks for continued support, I introduced in August 2021 a free monthly draw for a military history book. This is open to all Patreon supporters and they do not need to do anything to enter.

I randomly draw a name from a hat and send the book. I will try to do this on or around the 15th of each month.

Winners will be asked to provide their postal address.

Exclusive free service: existing Patreon supporters have been advised of an additional new, free service that I have introduced for them.
