Ah, Rigga - I wondered what that aroma was! Can't imagine that the sons of the founder of the pre-Avicii (sorry... Avin_whatever) company are waiting in the wings to carry out a 2nd re-purchase,...

Thank you CG - I had absolutely no idea Phil was no longer with us, and fully agree with the comments you and the other fellas have made about him. Definitely one of The Good Guys :sad:

212man,

I know - I was one of them :sad:, Oman too :ok:. CFS(H) visits were good value in both locations, I think their examiners found the visits educational as well, so mutually beneficial.

BEagle,

That's a wonderful picture, and an equally good story about Arthur Gibson to go with it.

I also took a lot of photos in GW1; the Regiment we were supporting asked if they could borrow...
