New photo of an old memory
Took a photo of this and cropped it. It's me and my mate Bill Bell when we were on a course in Santa Clara, Jan/Feb 1984.
We were there for 7 weeks so spent a fair bit of time in San Francisco. We were walking along the waterfront near Fishermans Wharf and came across this photo studio where you can get dressed up.
They are velcro'd up the back but the photographer put other little touches such as the card up my sleeve and the gunbelt.
Bill is a fairly down to earth sort of bloke (common really) so he's a lowly cowboy just wandered into town to try his hand at the gambling tables.
It was great fun and it's one of those photos you never forget being taken.
By the way - For all you Vulcan fans out there - XH558 is currently in the air on a 90 minute test flight from Robin Hood airport (RAF Finningley) at about 17:10. After her return the crew will change and she'll be up again for a while.
