Cool

Nostalgia being what it was, here's a selection from the RNAS Culdrose Air Day, 1975:







This one had my car in frame: it always put the size of the Sea King back into perspective!

I trust that these two images fit in with the spirit of this thread.
ETPS reunion at Boscombe in '95.
The Gentleman in front with the Mivvi needs no introduction. I have the greatest respect for all four, two being my closest relatives.
It was an honour to be there and an experience never to be forgotten.

Hairy, could you please resize the Bucs. They are really too big for the page. The ideal size is 640 x 480 - thanks.

Good pics indeed.

And sharpshot I see the great Bill Bedford, who I met one one occasion. Who are the others?

Glad you liked them - I was a little nervous posting them. I had seen Bill display so many times and it just seemed fascinating to see three T.P.'s (and many more) tucking in to ice creams on a warm summer's day.

They were all so down to earth and such gentlemen.

The other two; ahh, my now late father and one Paddy Barthrop whose fate I am not aware of.

The three of them got me hook line &.........my father had arrived on these shores with the RNZAF in 1940 and had just given the Acubra hat to PB and I wondered why as he seemed fairly attached to it. Well it "transpired" that it was in lieu of a jumper that the old man had helped himself to having shot PB down over the channel. It was all so believable as it just came out with many a tale. Strewth, was I horrified - my dear father had shot down his mate
Well I had a sleepless night - my paternal hero worship in tatters.
On viewing my troubled state the next day, they kindly put me out of my misery and laughed their socks off!

I can't help feeling that they lived at the right time and would find the modern PC world somewhat alien?

Ted Rudge's old Dove's & Devon's are slowly being pulled out of his old hangar at Essendon Airport: here's the old RAE example, with a pile of Gypsy engine boxes to keep it company

I hate saying this but for the benefit of all, please ensure that when you post your pics that you use 680 x 420 resolution.

If you have a look at this page you will see how larger resolutions make it expand and people miss some of the wording because it '5 - 7 inches to the right! The above resolution is just right so I would grateful if you would kindly stick to it.

So, Hairyclameater, would you please resize the Buccs. Thanks.

I believe this was taken in Iraq or Egypt 1936-7. Granddad was flown out from Egypt to Iraq to help put down a rebellion. Nothing changes.
