For newcomers

At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Fastest single-engine fighter of WWII (Mosquito may have been faster); said to have exceeded Mach 1 in a dive. Typically the USAF slowed it down by loading it with heavy armament (tank busting rockets) but then there's no point in having a war plane if it can't make war.

Compression of standing material gives better sense of immediacy to blog. Lettering on main pic not easy to read. I take it you've played around with the size of this pic; to occupy box with my montage a width of 615 pixels did the job.
