Aerial jolly, late 1991. Although I am not sure that the ship should be visible through that window! Surely the ship should be below us and not in front of us? CWEM(O) Happy Day in the front seat. He will probably tell you that he was bomb aiming or flying it!!

A confused Nick Athawes! This does not look like a Dieso, Fresh Water, Avcat or Trimming Tank to me!!
Archie Dickie in his very controversial BT Telecoms top, what bad taste!! Chris Baker in his standard run ashore threads, just bad really!!
The fashion police swooped just after this picture was taken. Many being sent down for a 10 stretch. Habitual fashion offenders had their outfits confiscated and given to the Chinese laundryman where they had all the buttons broken off and the seams rotted away (nothing new there then!!)
Nick Athawes, in Mini Coopers best run ashore outfit and Andy Green in God knows what!
