And there was me, checking every hour or so, solomnly sworn to absolute secrecy from some days ago that today was going to be 1851 DAY !! :- 8-[ \:D/ ..................

Except, Ah-hem [-X , whaur's the warning about the 13,000 (check me on that total someone, please) "missing" images?, - missing in the sense that they have been withdrawn because of an unaccpetably low quality .......

Delighted to see it at last David,
Could you say if the "missing images" are confined to certain areas?
Or are they spread all over Scotland?

Hi Jack

As far as I'm aware there is no geographical bias, but that's really a question for SoL and GROS ........

Thanks David,
Yes, i suppose they could be anywhere,
fairly often have i come across near blank pages in amongst the perfectly legible.
