One from the archives

My sister very kindly sent me some pictures she'd taken from old family negatives.  This would be one of my brother and me standing by a Whirlwind helicopter at RAF Tern Hill on Families Day in 1970.  I love the fact that it was chilly enough for a jumper yet we're still both bare legged!!!


  1. I grinned when I saw this shot and had the same thought re jumpers/bare legs. And I think that you're standing in front of a Wessex and I reckon it's early 1972.

  2. Just to add to the confusion, I think that it is at Tern Hill, pre HK days!!

  3. Brother here! Using Barbara's sign in.

    Date: 1970 Tern Hill Families Day.
    Whirlwind HAR10 (dad's favorite from the point of having to work on it.)

    Still remember that day and what displayed!
