Guten Abend, meine Damen und Herren

Post by Skeef143 » Thu Nov 13, 2014 9:59 pm

Hi, new member saying Hello.

Been a huge fan since Who Won The War Anyway? - at this time I was studying A Level German (although I was later to give it up) so I could understand Herren Ulrich und Grunwald's discussions :)

I've been having a look around the forum and I'm highly amused to see one of the signature banners features Staveley - my grandparents lived close to there for years and I'm only about 20 minutes away, although I have no cause to go there now. :D I also had an aunt and uncle who lived in Bingham for years, so I recognised the square straight away in "Another Country".

Some folk I know would say that I am an obsessive when it comes to AWP, but looking on here, I realise I am a novice compared to a lot of you :mrgreen:

Welcome aboard!

Nice to hear from fellow Aufaholics. I think we all think we are obsessives, then we find this place....

Hut??? What about the hostel :D

Hi Tracy - I hope you don't mind me mentioning this, but I've had a look over some of the longer topics the last few days, and you've mentioned speedway a couple of times, I'm a Sheffield Tigers fan

Hi Skeef 143, yes,I am 'Staveley', I picked the name because I had a mate there, it was not a fashionable place at all back in the days of Auf, hence Bombers saying to Barry " Bomber does not want to go to Staveley!" when they are looking for some 'action.'
I had a college mate I used to go and stay with, he had a flat above a chippy ( long demolished) in the centre and we had some good times in the local pubs, so had good memories for me.

Brilliant! :mrgreen: I think I know where you mean.

When that episode was on, my grandparents were still alive, so we were still going regularly. Needless to say when Staveley was mentioned, we found it hilarious.

Like I said, I never realised it would stick in anyone else's minds except ours (or other peole who knew the place) really. I think all the banners/avatars are great but of course I had to have that one.
