    Well done. Great nostalgia!

    Before my wife was struck by Alzheimer's we liked to visit the 'local' do's. Near us is RAF Upwood and they hold a 40's weekend every year. It was especially interesting for me because my mother was stationed at Upwood for part of WW2.

    Looks like a fun day out.

    If I may, I think the first shot would have benefited by being a little looser. Being able to see (what I assume is) the gun he is leaning on would have given a little more context to the shot.

    Also the saturation on the last one seems a little overdone. The women's red hat is quite extreme as are several of the blue shirts.
