Here is the complete cover of our Winter edition. There is also a personal endorsement from me for inside the magazine. Hopefully it may drive a few of our members your way, many of whom are researching their family's service histories.

Hi Carole, already done, together with a plug for this group. The Stirling Society attracts lots of people who are researching their families, hence getting your group involved. Am now in touch directly with Pat, and will be sending him a .pdf of the magazine once it has been sent out to our members.
Thanks once again to all at Rootschat. I'm already looking for the Spring edition cover picture!  ;D

Wow, all of these are all fantastic! However, in the words of Strictly Come Dancing judges.... there can only be one winner!
I have chosen PatBot, purely basing my judgement of the clarity of the aircraft colours and resulting print. I am so impressed by everyone's efforts, especially as you all probably have limited knowledge of the subject matter.
I am sorry that I didn't give much warning, but as this issue has to be mailed out before Christmas, I was somewhat desperate to solve the cover picture problem!
Would members of RootsChat like to have another go with the next issue (about May time)? I could then give more warning!
Meanwhile, will PatBot please let me have an email address so that I can forward her prize later this week.
Thank you one and all!

My goodness, that was quick.Thank you. How on earth do you do that?  :o

By way of introduction, for my sins, not only am I our family archivist and historian, I also hold the voluntary position of editor of The Stirling Times. This small newsletter goes out to members of the Stirling Aircraft Society, which exists for WW2 veterans and their families who flew or have an association with the Short Stirling bomber. Astonishingly we still have twenty veterans in our little band. Each year I try to source an original pictures to go on the cover of this little rag. Last time I was sent a beautifully colourized picture that was received with great enthusiasm by the group. So this time I would like to try and do the same, but lack the skill to do so.
Would someone be willing to help me please? In return I will email a .pdf version of the magazine to the selected artist, who I will also credit along with RootsChat. The Stirling Times is non-profit and only has a circulation of just over 100. I attach I picture which I hope is suitable.

Thank you. Yes I agree, she was very attractive. She was about 60 when I first met her as a child. She was a favorite aunt.

Thank you again for all the kind input from you talented folk. I keep trying (and failing), I can never make my efforts look natural. I know practice makes perfect and you all help me so much by showing me what can be achieved with the right skills and a good eye.   :) :) :)

This is the picture that appeared on the TV news as per my previous comment. The RFC wings belonged to her fiancée who was killed in WW1.
