Technical Help / Ready print
« on: Tuesday 07 March 23 11:15 GMT (UK)  »
I have an Epson printer and there is an offer to take out a subscription for their inks.
I know that it works by reading the chip on the ink cartridge and will send you inks by post when required. But my question is do I need to leave my printer on permanent standby for this to happen? I prefer to turn off my printer when not in use and when I go away turn off all non essential electrical items as I don't like leaving things on standby.

Can anyone identify the location of the photo please. It was (possibly) taken around 1941/42.

Dad was posted to the area during the war and he and Mum are in the photo which I have chopped a bit in case the other person in the picture is still alive!

Can anyone tell if the cap badge on these soldiers relate to the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry or the Devonshire regiment?

Grandfather served in both in World War One. DCLI first then transferred to the Devonshires in December 1915.

Sorry about the poor quality of the photo, sadly it is the only one we have of him.
