Whoops! I didn't see his claim on it. Thanks Jim, for letting me squeeze in there.Kitty wrote: ↑May 8th, 2021, 1:51 amHello Nathan, and the same warm welcome to the forum for you. Great to have started with the test so yes you are all ready to roll.
Update: Jim has relinquished his prior claim to you, so I was able to assign you Section 59. And here is your reader page: https://librivox.org/reader/16194. If you want another reader name, let me know and I'll change it.
Also please read carefully through the first two posts for more details about how to correctly speak the intro and title and footnotes and how to name your file correctly.
I would be happy to get to know your narrative voice.
yes it's always safe to read a few posts previous just to make sure the Magic Window has been updated with all the claims. As it is first come first served, the prior claim would get honoured and double work may be lost that's why it's always good to wait for the claim's registration before starting to record.
sure, here it is updated: https://librivox.org/reader/16194Sonia, could you please make my reader page reflect my real name, Nathan Dunn? Thank you!
wow, thank you for all of these, Jim. Quite interesting sections. The hospital diary of the nurse was very emotional It must have been hard working all day in that misery and death.neecheelok70 wrote:Here is Section 44--young men at war:
Here is Section 60--at least they had internal means of locomotion. I recorded a History of Naval Warfare, earlier naval warfare, where the ships were dependent on the wind. That made for some funny business.
Here is Section 73. I figured I would finish up my claims. No hurry, please. I fear this may be tedious, but I felt that it should be read slowly.
and another PL ok section, thank you for the final instalment of Kitchener's Mob, April. It was really an interesting insight into trench-life.adr6090 wrote: ↑May 7th, 2021, 7:26 pmhttps://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory15_48_dresser_128kb.mp3 time 12:46
He seems to have been just 18 when he joined. We have his letters as LV project already catalogued: https://librivox.org/war-flying-by-a-pilot-by-lessel-finer-hutcheon/ and in the preface they say:Availle wrote: ↑May 9th, 2021, 4:49 pmHere's section 68, at 12:49:
Interesting. I wonder how young he may have been...
Well, he was clever in a way, since the trenches were a much harder and more dangerous job than being up in the air, in my opinion."Theta was born in May 1897; the War broke out in August 1914. On his eighteenth birthday Theta decided that it was time to get a move on. His ambition from the first had been to enter the Royal Flying Corps. This was opposed chiefly because of his youth and seeming immaturity and the excessive danger attached to training. But fate, impelled by inclination, proved too strong. He had been a member of his O.T.C. for four years, and had attended camps at Aldershot and Salisbury Plain; but he deliberately set his face against “foot-slogging.” He urged that though he was old enough to risk his own life he was not old enough to risk the lives of others—his seniors—by accepting an infantry commission."

wow, Alan, this was a fast return, thank you so much. And your reading was excellent and interesting to listen to. Great diction, agreeable pacing, clear speech. It sounds as if you had fun recording. And word-perfect, so I can absolutely mark this as PL ok right away. Congrats on your first official LV recording. Hopefully many more to come.alanine wrote: ↑May 10th, 2021, 12:13 pmSection 62, clocking in at 12:06:
