Scraping Back Time

Scraping Back Time

I have always liked the “Scraping Back Time” photos that I have seen around so I thought I would give it a go. I am currently working in Guernsey one of the Channel Islands and the only part of the UK that was successfully occupied during the Second World War so I thought I would […]

Spitfire BM597

On 6th March 2011 I was treated to a flight in a helicopter while one of the few remaining spitfires fly around us, it has to be one on the most wonderful experiences I have had. This is a set of photos from the day.
