My pop died in 2008 and I miss him a lot.  We spent a lot of time together, fishing, playing snooker, fishing, watching cricket, watching league, fishing.  On what would have been his 100th birthday the family and I went to the jetty where we used to go fishing, ate fo...

It's been a while since I've posted any photos of my finds.  I have been out detecting, have found some nice things even, I've just been busy with other things to do the photo side of things.

I went out without my Deus Duo partner in crime over ground we have covered a...
