Just to remind people that we do not endorse the contents of external websites, the domain name for the above website is not registered to the defence forces but instead to three individuals. They may be members of the DF Press office but I cannot at this point confirm that.

Fair enough didnt see that as all DF websites so far have been registered as a government website and for some reason the dfmagazine.ie one wasnt.

Possibly because the Magazine is a commercial product, published by civilans, under the guidance of the DFPO.

If you look closer at the website and the emailed newsletter, you will see the inscription 4pm, so an external web company is doing the web design, and no doubt the domain name could be tied into the package contract.:smile:

how do you register to see later mags from the archive. when u click archive it goes all the way to 1989 i think but on the laft colum it gives the option to already registered people to log on and see more recent one.

only asking because one of my friends saw me in it and i never got to see the craic i made on the lens of the camera when the photography took my pic,

i had one hard time when he went to the CQ and said he needed a new canon
