The O'Palmer is looking for correspondants, writers, researchers, friends and collaborators. Get involved, Get in touch ...

Fiends, contacts, countrymen ...

So, you recognise yourself. You should be proud. Now you want to go about finding out what's happening to all the good men and where they have gone. Most important of all, don't do it alone.
Make friends and find out how things work within your own group. Harry already has a group, he is asoldier after all. Perhaps, for you, there is no one you can confide in as it may already be too late for them. Then look outside your social group. Make use of whatever contacts you have, from any field.
Be patient, work quietly, gently rocking the boat and getting the job done.
There's no need to prove yourself to others or be a hero. Let history be the judge.
Find support, It is out there. Take guff when you have to, give it when you can.
