A little bit of SNRG history

Many of you will know that the ringing group was started in 1971 by Humphrey Dobinson who started the Fairham School Ornithological Society (the Bird Club). Humphrey spent much of his free time taking pupils out on field trips and our transport was usually his Bedford (the Beddy) minibus. Humphrey now lives in Norway and recently his son Colin arranged for the minibus to be restored, the restoration made it on to Norwegian television and can be viewed on http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/distrikt/ostfold/1.7641950. I can't help with the translation of the commentary but to some in the group this will bring back many happy memories.
