Panto368 viewsNot sure what date but probably 1954 - I know it was February time as after the show I went swimming and it was freezing - thats me on the extreme right. The show was on Manoel Island in a small theatre attached to the Small Ships Training Centre. Cannot remember who put the show on but we did the Hornpipe. No names I am afraid although a Heather was there! 2 commentsrobinwilliams05/01/15 at 09:17alexm: Do you remember what was the name of the Theatre? ...

39 Squadron RAF, in Italy343 viewsInteresting though it has been, Prefect, to learn about the Algerine Class of minesweepers, it must be time for another aeroplane. Here is a 39 Squadron Canberra PR9 from Luqa on detachment to Villa Franca, Verona, in the mid 1960's. Back of the photograph is stamped " 3A Aerobrigata" (Aeronautica Militaire). Not sure if the aircrew are arriving or departing. 1 commentsIvan03/28/15 at 09:32Prefect: By all means.
