A number of minor changes have been made to the forum as follows:
1) The dates at the top under the site title have been changed from "1837 - 1913" to "1837 - 1902
". This has been done in order to reflect the main focus of the forum - i.e. the Victorian period. The end date of 1902 (rather than 1901 when the Queen died) was chosen since this was the year the Boer War ended.
*Please note we are still covering the minor campaigns and actions that took place from the end of the Boer War up until the outbreak of the First World War in the "Other Campaigns" section - see 3 below. However the scope of this forum is really the Victorian period
2) Originally we included the Sixth Cape Frontier War in the Wars and Campaigns section. However this campaign was fought before Queen Victoria was on the throne and since there have been no discussions based on this campaign it has now been removed. The Cape Frontier Wars sub-forum now begins with the Seventh War and as a result there has been a slight reordering of the sub-forums due to the date change.
3) We have amalgamated the "Other Victorian Campaigns" and "Immediate Post-Victorian Campaigns" sub-forums.
These have now been replaced by a single sub-forum called "Other Campaigns
". All threads and posts from the previous sub-forums have been moved to the new one. I am sure you will agree it makes sense to use just the one sub-forum for this purpose.
