Default Re: tell a Model A related story

Gerard takes some interesting shots with Pom’s camera.

I took a job in Sudan in 1977 when we had what seemed to be a never ending drought. There were 11 of us made up of several nationalities. Three English, one whose name was Ian was once the team leader of the Rothmans Aerobatic team, a gentleman of a fellow, one a former crop sprayer from the days when aeroplane spraying was conducted. If I remember correctly regulation made it just too difficult to aerial spray. The third fellow was pretty green and quite disagreeable. I don’t even recall his name.
One bloke in our camp was Gerard, a Dutchman, experienced, personable and not a bad drinker. Never had any money and when he bit me I “loaned” him cash which was never returned but that was okay because he bought liquor which I helped him consume. Gerard was quite a card and he too disliked the disagreeable pom.
The pom in question took many photographs with what was a 35mm camera. He was unmarried and sent the undeveloped rolls home to his mummy to develop and view. Well Gerard takes his camera to a brothel, gets one or two porno shots, I don’t know how many and simply replaces his camera where he found it.
I really don’t know the outcome of course but can well guess. You could too.

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
