    You go through all of them like me and present them to an appreciative audience as it deserves.

    I would like to say 'tanks' for Snauzter one more time, and to nuuumannn also. The magazine 'Evidence in camera' seem worth looking, available from the Polish museum (a big 'thank you' for them, too).

    the gun camera photos like that of the buzzbomb being shot down is something that interests me. I have asked several people...even the guys who worked on and loaded to cameras in the planes to guys who processed the film. my question being...was the lens of those cameras magnified to a certain power rating (+10x,20x etc)??? ....because it certainly seems a closer range than what a sane pilot would shoot a flying bomb from. in the interest in clarity and information gathering i can understand the reason for it but have yet to get a diffinative answer.
