I was a member last year but didn't renew this year, perhaps I should. I will certainly be going to the event and so would like to participate.

Paul has some photos on his camera which he will upload in the course of the next few days.

Thanks to everyone who visited our table and kept us busy!

It was a great day and it will take me a few weeks to sort through all the info I received on the day.

One lady from Edinburgh came up to me and said she was trying to find information about her uncle who was in the KOSB and died at Arnhem, his name was Ferguson. I immediately replied "Robert Ferguson, 7th KOSB?" - the lady and David were surprised to say the least, especially when I produced a photo of the man and told her that his name was on a memorial in the Dumfries Aviation Museum. Apparently she had already been there and been told they had nothing on him. It turned out she was a distant relative to a lady who lives a few doors away from me and had given me the photo just a couple of weeks previously. A small world!
