John & Bob,
Thank you for those comments about the photo of Dan Dunham. At first I was reluctant to post it since I wasn't too sure if any would understand just how significant or important it might really be for collectors of wings. If my memory is correct, it is the only known photo of one of the better known designers and makers of WW1 wings that has ever come to the surface. . . at least for now.
I realize my skepticism was probably unwarranted but there does seem to be a good number of collectors who do very little research on their own. Either they don't know what steps to take initially, or they could just be disinterested which is something a few of us find hard to understand since doing research can be half the fun that comes from collecting wings. Sure, it may require a little added effort or commitment but it can be very rewarding. A good example of how rewarding it can be would be that photo. . . and for the record, it was not found on the internet.
I'll just close by saying to those who have a solid appreciation for wings, military history and research, I hope you like the photo too.
