Photographs

Post by DavePace » Fri Feb 01, 2019 2:58 am

Fred and Betty Gray have very kindly sent me some excellent photographs to add to the AEA site. Though I still have a lot of work to do on the Roll of Honour content I will get these photos scanned and uploaded ASAP, will post here once that's done.

Will look forward to viewing those Dave, Remember Fred, on several occasions wandering around with his camera taking coloured photo's when the majority of us only had Black and white film. In fact it was Fred who took the coloured photo's of Aubrey Smith, Danny Daniels, and myself at Odiham, and the Group shot at Hankley Common, which are posted on my Photos on site. So no doubt there are a few crackers in his collection .

Bob, there are some really good photos, the standout one for me in terms of uniqueness is Willy Wiltshire being awarded his LS&GC by Haile Salassie, there is also a good informal colour photo of 1 Troop from 1968.
