Hi there,
I'd like to ask if anyone has personal photographs of HMS Cambridge Wembury during its service as an active Royal Navy gunnery range for potential use in an upcoming episode of BBC Countryfile please. I'd be very interested to see photographs that could be clear to use and that would belong to you personally. The sort of images I'd like to find would be similar to the attached postcard please. Many thanks for your time in advance.
Please feel free to contact me for further information at [email protected]

Yeah - No.2 mounting.
No.1 mounting up and to the right, out of picture.
Remember that be delivered to Cambridge, late 70’s.

The fixing flange was wider than the low loader it was on, which was also wider than some of the country lanes out to Cambridge, it cut its way down some of the narrow bits.

I was duty WEM, get a pipe to main gate, WE spare has arrived, QM pissing himself, points to Gun on the low loader trailer. What do you expect me to do with that? Got the lorry driver to park up and sorted him out some accommodation for the night.

I'm having severe snags with my email on my new laptop - (account issues and unsupported software I think) but I'll send them when I'm up and running.
Meanwhile, feel free to copy the pictures if you like.
Thanks again and no rush - any time next week would be great if you can please. Many thanks again, Dave
