Beinn Eighe boots !

Boots on Beinn Eighe !

The boots in the photo above were worn by my old pal Joss Gosling who had them on the RAF Kinloss MRT. He was a member of the team as a young man that located the Lancaster on Beinn Eighe in mid winter. All the crew were killed and it took months to recover the crew due to the depth of the snow. It was a life changing event for Joss. The boots are now used by his daughter in her Bed & Breakfast to raise money for Lochaber MRT.

Joss was a wonderful man and told me so many tales of these early call outs and how it shaped his life. Joss took lots of photos of the incident that are a unique piece of history.
