Here is a rather artificial picture, posed for the Press. It is supposed to be the briefing for "Operation Longtrek". I don't quite know why we would be briefing on a wing and wearing our leather helmets! But, that is what the gentlemen of the press wanted. I'm in the back row furthest from the camera. Sqn.Ldr. Colin Coulthard is holding the map. The fourth leather helmet from the right is worn by by a charming chap called "Greg". sadly he was killed a few days later as he tried to land his burning Venom on the crash strip. His control cables burnt through just prior to touchdown and the aircraft nosed in and broke up.
