Hi Roger and Happy New Year to you & yours.

I must admit to having more than a passing interest in guns and all things military, which then became my engineering specialism (no I'm no gun-runner or criminal!). I'd have loved to have found iron miners or engineers in my family tree, but most are "humble" coal miners in Lydbrook but I was pleased to discover my dad's G-Grandad and his dad were watchmakers !.
Anyhow, re guns I thought the FoD cannon connection was considered unfounded, insofar as it's actually "Gunn's Mill" rather than "Gun Mills", altho that's at Littledean whereas Soudley is, perhaps, Camp Mill aka the Heritage Museum ?. Either way, please clarify what you're referring to wrt Soudley ?.
Also, where and exactly what have you seen in France, please; I ask as I love that country and have holidayed there many many times, so am always on the lookout for new places to see.
Thanks again for the programme headsup, atb Jeff
