Dear Friends,

Because of a request I like to share with all the other members of this forum a translation of my signature.

My Avatar shows King Frederick August I., King of Saxony, known as 'The Just'.
„Macht Euch Euren Dregg alleene“

"Sort your filth out by yourself!" The King of Saxony Friedrich August III., at his abdication 1918, referred to the quarrels in the parliament and the squabbling within the provisional government.

My signature is my uncle Paulie Galtieri (not as some might think related to john paul gaultier who is spelt similar) he is also known as Paulie walnuts due to his penchant for cracking them. He is a well known member of a social working/banking/security organisation and is well known for his tactical ability and wilderness tracking. especially in the snow. He is also an outstanding diplomat with roots going back to patrician Rome via Sicily

Hi,
my avatar is Charles V from Tiziano, in the Mulhberg battle.
My signature was in use in the Tercios in Flandes, to resume: "I was born in Castille like the majority of the spanish soldiers, I was lived in Italie some time to prepare for war but also to know the italians pleasures and finally I was sent to Flandes in this f...g war where I was sure to die ..."
Best regards

My signature refers to my painting skills and my avatar is how I look if I don't shave for a couple of days.

My signature is a quote from a gentleman who was playing BLB2 at Historicon who had a question. I gave him the answer and that was his retort. I held my tongue..

Avatar is, of course, Dillons regiment of foot. It is in fact a reduced picture of an actual size painted on silk replica of the flag which I have hanging in my painting room.

Günter,

I assume that Dregg is the Saxon dialect version of Dreck... is that the case?

Cheers,
