Short bit of archive rescue footage
« on: June 29, 2020, 09:53:33 pm »



Anyone recognise anyone or the location? I thought perhaps Jim Eyre on the phone? I never met him but the nose seems familiar?

Thanks Mike. There’s a good write up from the casualty point of view in Poohs book. Interesting to see the film to accompany it!

Is that (the late) Chas Yonge in the last few seconds?
That's how I remember him from when I was a youth.

The bloke using the phone is Harry Long (not Jim Eyre).  (By co-incidence I've just been chatting with Harry about something else and he mentioned it in passing.)

He also agreed with me that the caver with the blonde goatee beard at the very end of the clip is Chas.
