Hope to get back to wild-camp Lathkill Dale and magpie mine sometime. Some dark history at that lead mine. Also on the cards for wild-camp and video will be Lud's Church and Errwood hall. Hoping for full moon in all cases. Why is it always cloudy at full moon!!!

Nice to find a great channel with superb Casio instructions.. Finally understand the moon and tide phases on my GW-7900 - really useful for astro and beech photography. My other Casio SGW 1000, just have to figure out the compass and altimeter. Somehow think I will be buying more Casio's' as they are addictive!

This year will be the 70th anniversary, so will have to be up there on that day. Maybe camp plus drone footage if i get one this year..

It was good to hear from the son of David Devere Moore, the Radar operator on B-29, “Overexposed”. Maybe I will take up a poppy for him and his family. he wrote :

I’m Terry David Moore, born 2/15/1946. I live in Tempe, Arizona, near Phoenix. My Son, David Eric Moore, was named after David Devere Moore. My Father was David Devere Moore, the Radar operator on B-29, “Overexposed”
My Brother Tom & I am the only 2 living survivors of David Devere Moore.

My Brother Tom was born November 3, 1947, the crash occurred on his 1st birthday. Only a few photos survive today showing my Father & my Brother & I all together.

Photos of David Devere Moore from 1943 show a resemblance to the actor Tyrone Power.

David Devere Moore flew during WW2, flew B-24 anti-submarine missions from England, late in the war flew B-29 missions to Japan, survived, started a family, re-enlisted,
& perished in a peace time accident. The loss of David Devere Moore is felt to this very day.

David Devere Moore is buried in Arlington National Cemetary, in Washington D.C. He is in Section 12, downhill from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Thanks to all for your kind and solumn words and caring of the crew of “Overexposed”

Thank You, Terry David Moore

No Dambusters in sight over at Howden. Looking moody and practicing some longer exposure settings for calm waters. More practice = an opportunity to go back soon.. #howden #peakdistrict

My Grandad, Fred Riseley would now be 117 years old. Here age 83 and almost blind, are recordings from cassette tape that my dad George Turnock recorded just before he himself died, aged just 54. I'm glad he recorded them, as now we have them to keep and remember these sounds indefinite. Sounds that would have been heard in the pubs during singalongs too. A few of the tunes we don't know what they are. Do you know any? He did however make a few up.

The Lost Villages of Ashopton & Derwent. Those little meandering streams from 'up the moors' turned to rivers and shaped history. I mean, those generations that lived, called there by those rivers which later on in time sercombe to pressure of the city dwellers needs for water in the 30's and 40's, en-mass consumption, that eventually called for the flooding of those villages in the 40's. Today has a beauty of its own but underneath a forgotten time of long lost generations.
