Do you remember when in August Prince William of Gloucester crashed and died in his light aircraft during an air race at Halfpenny Green Staffordshire, I was in the crowd watching that day and remember it well.
Well today I visited the church in Bobbington near where he crashed to see the wrought iron memorial to him.

He was the Queens cousin and grandson of King George V and was 4th in line to the throne at the time.

Mention 1972 to a Canadian and all we think of is the Canada - Russia Summit Series of hockey (we won, BTW) :)

'72 was a good year for me - I lost my virginity. :eek:

I also picked up my enthusiasm for photography and began lusting after the new Olympus M-1 (later to become the OM-1). I managed to pick up a used one in late '75 just after I left the Navy - I still have it and it still works. :D

Oh yes. While practicing on the tank range, we had those Ziggy Stardust posters stuck on the side of the targets to see if we could hit the Starman between the eyes. I did manage to place a couple of 88mm rounds close enough to blow the poster off the target tank, but never close enough to eliminate the threat. :D

Funnily enough, I just downloaded the theme tune to Robinson Crusoe as well!


Coming back to the original. I do have vague memories of the event, and the photos are clear and sympathetic - like the shadowing on the wrought iron.
