It is with sadness that I have to tell you that Steve Davies, the founder of this website has sadly lost his battle against that bastard cancer.
He finally lost the fight at 4:15 on the 16th October this year.
I had known Steve for many years, originally buying many of his master European slides. Our contact grew into a friendship and we attended open days together, selling our photos as well as bumping into each other on occasions in car parks and on aqueducts.
A proud Welshman we often had friendly banter over sport. He only ever seemed to contact me regarding sport when Wales beat England at Rugby. Funny that.
He finally found the perfect match, or some would say the "Better Half". Helen was supportive of his interests and was his rock. They had too little time together, but at least it was happy time. And yes it was at an open day that I first met Helen, and I could see that they were made for each other.
Although we didn't see each other often, I will obviously miss Steve. I am honoured that he wanted me to take on his website and to hopefully grow it in a way Steve would have approved of.
So in closing, please raise a glass to Steve Davies. Ex RAF, proud Welshman, devoted Husband to Helen, and of course my friend.
