Two Airmen and a Camel.

Today's RAF Friday is going to be a short 'un. I'm feeling rather grotty and have a sore throat- pah! All I want to do is curl up, listen to Desmond Carrington and perhaps do a bit of knitting :(
Anyway, here are two little crackers that I adopted a while ago.
Again, like most of my snaps I don't know who they are or the year they were taken.
 I thought they were rather fun and who can resist a snap featuring an aircraft, a camel and some airmen, eh? I certainly can't!!
I'm actually quite envious of the chap on the right... not only is he clinging on to a rather lovely, snazzy shades wearing chap but he also has wonderfully shapely legs (ok 'leg' , but I'm guessing the other one is the same!).
Interesting are they not?!
I would also like to dedicate today's blog to Cyril, a chap who only had one wreath by his name. at the crem. I found yesterday even more upsetting when I went to look at all the beautiful flowers that were there for my great uncle and then to look down and see a lone RAF wreath from the Royal British Legion besides Cyril's name. All I can say is thank goodness for the RBL, otherwise there would have been nothing for Cyril. Just shows how important they are, and how they can help and be there for those who are not so fortunate to have what we sometimes take for granted.... A close and caring ring of family and friends.
And on that cheery note,
Happy R.A.F. Friday all!

Told you it was a short 'un!)
RAF Fridays so far...



  1. So sorry to hear that you're under the weather, Tups. I've had a rotten cold all this week too, so there's definitely something going around. Hope you feel better soon - plenty of cocoa and rest is my advice.

    Could it be Biggles and Algy flying that Camel, I wonder? ;-) Looks like they were having fun, whoever they were.

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that a few local councils (and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, of course) run, or ran, "Adopt a Grave" programmes. That always sounded like a good idea to me but certainly thank goodness for the RBL, indeed!

  2. Hi sweet Tupps, thank you for blogging even though you're got a winter bug at the moment. Tony is similarly under-the-weather and it will be a small miracle if I escape this virus (one just cannot share a little home with someone else and not pick up whatever colds, flues, etc they bring home).

    Thinking of you and sending tons of get well wishes your way, honey.
