Welcome to my playground

Thank you for checking out Gud2BRabah.com, the internet sandbox for Ross Wilkins, aka Rabah.

This site is a work in progress. Check back periodically to see how the site changes as I find time to play with it!

This page will be used to document the twelve years I served in the US Navy. 

What's a Rabah?

So where did "Rabah" come from? I portrayed a 16th Century Ottoman Turk named Mu'allim Rabah az-Zafar, OP in the SCA . As I understand it, "Rabah az-Zafar" loosely translates to "Gain the Victory". "Mu'allim" is a title that denotes my inclusion into the Order of the Pelican, the society-wide Peerage that is given for high level service to the society.

Drumming
