You might some search avenues on Family Search.

I would love to see the treatment he gave to the Dambusters. I worked in a hotel in Lincoln when it was being filmed there and met all the stars. Do you know if it is available anywhere?

I think the Dambusters project has been shelved

Nope, as I said in my previous post, I saw the Peter Jackson version of The Dambusters at his theatre in Wellington, NZ.  It was a fundraising event for the Missing Wingman Trust! We were served with nibbles and drinks and entertainment by the RNZAF Brass Band before moving on into the theatre for the movie!   The whole thing was totally mind blowing! A huge screen, loud music, as we were sitting in the front row it was pretty spectacular! Just about blown out of the theatre!!!  With my Dad having served in the RNZAF, he would have loved it!  Sadly, he had passed away before it was produced, I remember him having a record of the Dambuster's March, it was his favourite!

Despite searching the net, sadly, I haven't been able to find the film online anywhere!! Probably not old enough to be put onto YouTube yet!  I might phone

👍👍Thanks Isobelw, obviously I need to
 recheck Scotland's people again! 


Also more on YouTube

I'll look forward to seeing it too, hopefully it will be shown on telly here, but I'm a bit doubtful about that!  I'm picking it maybe shown here in NZ at the Peter Jackson Theatre in Wellington.  A few years ago he gave the PJ treatment to THE DAM BUSTERS - that was fantastic!

Sorry to infiltrate this post, but I have been looking for some Baptist BMD's for some time, and not having any luck!  Any advice??  They would probably be from around the early 1920's in Ayrshire, possibly New Cumnock?? I've tried Scotland's people, but no joy there! Thank you for any pointers!

Do you think it could be possibly have been used to make soap of some kind?

In NZ, and after the nations demographic details have been collated, our Census documents are destroyed by the powers that be.

The only way we can find out where our people lived, are the old electoral rolls!  Better than nothing, but that only gives us those that have registered to vote, and no other family members

In some cases, some people were baptised not long before marrying if they hadn't been baptised as a child!

I was looking through, and thoroughly enjoying, re-reading all the posts on this thread recently, Carol, and what I noticed most was that, apart from mentioning help with FTs, the second most numerous vote of thanks went to the photo restorers on the Restoration Board so I think a pat on the back is more than due there!  I was also interested to note that some people also mentioned the panto,  which 'Despair' listed as the 'gloriously bonkers' Theatre Production Company.  So, if we do another panto this year, we will be calling it The Gloriously Bonkers Theatre Production Company  ;D  Thanks for that, Roger  :)
