RE: RAF Gan & Ian Hourston Addu Photos 1967/1968


I thought it was time to place some of Ian's fantastic photos up as a Header Pic, I know they will be of interest to many forum members that were either stationed here or passed through in transit. They certainly brighten up my day! smile.gif Thanks Ian......

Lucky to have spent the best 9 months of my life without a doubt and would do it again tomorrow as long as Wullie, Gerry, Rod, Ron, Bob, Gordon, Roger, Ralph, George, Keri, Setch, Nobby, Taff Small and Taff Short, Mal, et al.
Most of whom I'm still in touch with to this day.
Very happy days who I know the above named will agree with me



I certainly do!!

Ian

I don't have the time to correct my posts, nearly 25000 of them nor read back what I have written as I run 4 Forums and 4 other websites, but I'm just so glad that there are 36 hours in my day!!aww

I have no problem with anything you do, John (except perhaps - being cheeky - your spelling and punctuation). Long may you and your site flourish!
Regards and best wishes, Ian.

Two things Ian, we set out our standards from day 1 and the whole forum is not cluttered with photos of other peoples material, although it is a shared forum it is in my name and as such I am ultimately responsible for anything that might go wrong, I never did like SSO's/SRO's but understand why they were there now!smile

If anyone has there own photos to share on here they are more than welcome to do so as you have so kindly done recently, everyone is credited with their existence to the photograph [although I do sometimes question some of them as to their authenticity]hmm

We also encourage everyone to use an HTML/JPEG link which directs the reader to the original source, we have one member on this forum who has some wonderful photos from all those years ago of elsewhere in the Far East sadly someone used those photos without his permission, things got a little heatedcry

I trust the above is in order............

Oh well, it wasn't that good a photo anyway; it was just that it had been talked about by members.  (However, I've posted photos of pictures, bought and owned by me, on other non-profit sites without problems.)
Cheers!

I just wrote a post following-up the subject of the ILN cover photo of Gan, but I seem to have lost it.  If two similar posts appear, put it down to my advancing senility: I often say things twice these days. 
The point was that I discovered I hadn't in fact binned my badly faded ILN picture, so I re-photographed it (it was too big for my scanner) and tried to restore it in imaging software. Unfortunately it was impossible to turn various shades of pale blue-grey into a smashing multi-hued picture, so the best I could do was make it black-and-white, and sharpen it within an inch of its life.  I'll attach it for whatever it's worth;  I doubt the ILN will sue us for breach of copyright at this late stage.
