Some of us at the SC.gathering at RAF Cosford Museum on 11th.May enjoyed a coffee and chat near the display representing the Berlin Wall. It is quite a poignant presentation and here I’ve kept all but the family in colour whilst attempting to show the family in B.& W.

That's very effective, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Penny.

They seem impressed by the light, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I thought this was an excellent little display, although most others seemed to have missed it.
This is really good,Brian, I didn't see this on the day,I wish I had.
Brian Walbey: It was in the hanger with all the aircraft hanging in the roof diagonally across from the shop next to the teabar.
i missed this one that day as well Brian... but i like the way that you presented it here today....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. It was in the hanger with all the aircraft hanging in the roof diagonally across from the shop next to the teabar.
Well done, Brian!!! Really great!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, doing this meant I also got to have a play with the image as well.

I remember this scene. You have done a great job here.
I remember the day that my (East) German grandmother turned 65, she was allowed to walk 'through the wall' and had a week's time to see her family near Leipzig, which she had not seen for over 20 years.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, yes some of us had a nice long chat not far from this. Obviously I didn't know your grandmother came from the eastern side of the wall, that must have been a very memorable visit for her, and one she didn't want to end.

A striking image Brian but I'm afraid I don't remember this installation at all!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. It was in the hanger with all the aircraft hanging in the roof diagonally across from the shop next to the teabar.

a fitting photo- today 53 years ago the Berlin wall was erected on 13 August 1961 - yes, one of the happiest moments in my life when the wall was broken down in 1989 ...
Brian Walbey: It is a pure coincidence that I posted this on 13th.August Philine. I recall you've mentioned in the past that your immediate family, and presumably yourself, lived on the eastern side of the wall for some years, or am I getting a bit mixed up.
I remember this...AND our coffee hour!...quite well, Brian, and really like your take on it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. I really enjoyed that time, which was far too short, when a goodly number of us just sat, chatted and enjoyed each others company, not for the last time I hope.

Very clever, Brian. I think I was part of that chat but I can't recall seeing this display. The family look like they are covered in dust as the result of some sort of building disaster (I have very vivid memories of the survivors from 9/11).
Brian Walbey: It was in the hanger with all the aircraft hanging in the roof diagonally across from the shop next to the teabar. I think the dust look comes from my B.& W,conversion and a bit of mucking about.
I don't recall ever seeing this Brian. Well found and presented
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. It was in the hanger with all the aircraft hanging in the roof diagonally across from the shop next to the teabar.

You show just what an interesting place Cosford is Brian.
Brian Walbey: I found this bit very interesting Chad.
what a funny sight
Brian Walbey: A mock-up of the Berlin Wall, not funny of course for those poor souls who were stuck on the wrong side of it.
I like the statues.
Brian Walbey: This mock-up of the Berlin Wall is done very well, although in reality I suspect people wouldn't have been allowed to get this near to it, certainly on the East German side.

Looks very dramatic - recently watched the spy who came in from the cold again. Excellent classic film if you haven't seen it.
Brian Walbey: It is a very good mock-up Mike. I've seen the film a long time ago, and read the book as well I believe, although my ageing memory doesn't recall a lot of the story.
A really good job on this Brian! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Martin.
A fabulous image Brian! Great POV too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it is of course a one-sided mock-up so there isn't a really good angle other than this one.
I remember this Brian,I like your composition and treatment
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, yes this was just near to where we enjoyed a chat and a cuppa for a little while.
clever treatment, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
