Great photo’s Barrie. Is it OK for me to post them on the McAlpine Facebook page?

Broady, Hi, No objection as per last time.I sometimes"dip" into it and see comments about people I met or knew back in the early 60's.It was a hard life at times but looking back through my personal diaries I realize I had some good mentors then even if I didn't know it at the time.
