Re: Sinclair Generals

    will you also accept a Captain of Marines as a berserkr?  I come from
Caithness and joined the American Marine Corps in 1968 as a private.  I spent 21
years in  Recon and Force Recon and carried arms and fought on four continents.  I
retired from active service in 1989.
    Yours Aye,
    Tearlach Sinclair
    Captain, USMC
