20th August 2017

Good evening everyone,

Well it's been a very productive week of the admin side of things, I've now finished all the town data for Wales Scotland and Warwickshire ready for the Imperial War Museum War Memorial register, it's following the lines of the Ordinance Survey system where you have the location name, a four figure grid reference, the County and what type of feature it is. I've changed it slightly so instead of having Swansea and Abertawe as two separate entries there is just one. This should hopefully stop some of the wrong spellings and entries into the main system.

It's also been a week of no Internet at the trailer and even got no phone signal here at the moment! So when this update gets online I got no idea...

With working so hard on all data I am now got a backlog of images in the system, hope your clear these this week.

A nice surprise today was meeting up with an old friend Peter Finn are spending the day in and around the Stratford-upon-Avon area, we've managed to see a Vulcan powering up at the old RAF Wellesbourne airfield this afternoon, there is a video of it on my Facebook page, for those that don't do Facebook you shouldn't need to be registered only to see it. Another nice surprise was a couple of hours ago, seeing three cats in the caravan opposite me, they simply watching Missy enviously as she catches shrews in the hedge behind us!

Tomorrow is a short hop into Stratford-upon-Avon to Tesco and I'll start this area, I suspect I'll be here for roughly a week, I suspect it will be then Warwick and Royal Leamington spa, not sure after that moment.
