  3. Was being taken round Berlin a few years ago by a young German tourist guide who embarrassingly told me about the time she was working as an intern in London that she saw a reference to the RAF museum in Hendon and wondered why the British would have a place dedicated to a 70's German terrorist group!

  5. You need to do more than make the album public, making an album public just means that other Facebook members who are not friends can see it. To make it available for non facebook people you have to get a link from the album edit page (Click on the 'wheel' symbol) Info here: http://www.guidingtech.com/5443/share-facebook-photo-album-public-link/ Tim

  15. We did the trip via Trent Falls both ways in 1992 as part of an exploration of Yorkshire waterways based around that Years IWA National Rally at Wakefield The outwards trip was as part of a convoy organised by Strawberry Island boat club. At Trent Falls British Waterways had anchored a crane barge which all the convoy moored up to. We left Keadby at 6.am and got to York at 9.0m, our longest day's boating in terms of both hours and miles that we had ever done. Click on the image below for some (Not very good) pictures: Tim
