Les, Ive just been reading your journal, and would like to correct a misconception if I may, not that its caused me a problem in anyway, but it may others, hence this public statement . I do not have any connection to the Crown Monochrome Group, my affiliations lie with the East Midland Monochrome Group hence the constant plugs from me for that group. My wife and I shall therefore be attending the CMG day, at the end of this month as paying visitors, and have to fight for our seats along with everyone else. On another tack I have a request of you, if I may. I assume that you will be taking a few of your books to the Crown Monochrome Group event to sell? If so would you please do me the favour of autographing one and bring it with you for me, its high time I had a copy to join my photographic library.
