February, 10th 2004

The new version of the site is online!

I am very proud of this work... Well, I am not sure, but I spent something around 120 hours to make this new site (only the English version!), so if you want to criticize my site don't be too harsh. :-)

The main news are, apart the graphics, a new page about ranks, a new page about the various Navy corps tasks, a new story in the contributions page, some new pictures, and a merchandise shop. This last one is just to support the costs of the site, the contents here are free and I don't want to start a commercial site. Anyway, I used original logos taken from 1940s books, "remastered" and repainted, so the merchandise will be surely something original.

Another main news is the fact now this site has an hint section about how to find info on Italian veterans, either if they're your relatives and you want to know what they did during their Navy time in WWII, or if they were your military buddies. Check out the "Find People" link to the left.

Have a good stay!
