I have been too busy with work lately to take any pics, but looking thro my old files I found an image which is rather appropriate for this week. My Great Grandfather and two of his sons were killed in the Great War; my Grandfather was one of the first fighter pilots in the RFC. We owe so much to those thousands of brave men, and equally so to the young men and women serving in our Armed Forces today.

The eyes are incredible - it reminds me of what my grandad used to tell me - that they were told not to shoot the enemy till they saw the whites of their eyes... haunting stuff.

Hi Ray,

I understand perfectly what you mean about work (eats my life up too - not to mention children!) .
Love the mono here, and the expression on the guy's face.
