Hi, I'm new at this, but would like to reply to your message on page 5 regarding the first foot patrol in to the crater in 1966. You mentioned fusilier J. Collinson (ex provist sgt). John Collinson is my stepfather! I've shown him this website and he has enjoyed reading all the posts and photographs. He remembers his time there with great clarity, recalling most of his fellow soldiers. He also recalls the floods. He would like to contact L/cp Peter Madison, if anyone knows of him or could us find him. He would also like to attend any get together soon. Many Thanks.

Hi Mandy,I didn't know J Collinson but there is a John Madderson on facebook that might have known him,he joined the Northumberland Fusiliers in 1964 so there is a chance he knows someone who knows him.The floods washed all the make shift homes off the sides of the hills.

    • Well for a first finished painting that is a particularly fine work, well done I wish I could paint like that ! I really like the bust as well. My skills go as far as helping the kids paint their Warhammer figures. Although I think I am now more into it than they are, as I am finding it a great way to relax in the evening.
    • As some of you know I sculpt and paint miniatures. Not in the mood while under house arrest so I decided to have a bash at oil painting on canvas. Mostly done except for final touch ups and glazes. My first finished painting ever and 3rd ever attempt; based on a 200mm miniature bust by Alexandros Models (pictured). Michel Ney, Prince of the Moskowa, Duke of Elchingen. ”The Bravest of the Brave.” “Le Rougeaud.” Russia 1812  
    • 😄Very good!😄 The only real downside of this whole isolation thing is that I miss having kids still at home. We have grand kids but of course they can not come over nor can we visit and play with them. They are the only soft spot in my cynical personality. 😉 By the way, a group of geese is a gaggle, would a group of grandchildren be a mess? Thanks for your reply JohnF, it brings a much needed air of humour to the forum. Regards Brian  
    • I've been going through and rediscovering pieces in my collection.  I have also been helping my kids put together Legos.  This is the latest set.
    • Those are great thanks for adding them. Regards Brian
