We have about 60 photos from the Photographer - [member=1]Dan[/member] has them but I don't know where they are going to be posted
They are just numbered, not named so although I have them too I don't know which is which

They're too big for me to attach

OK thanks, no rush, I'll just wait until Dan's sorted them out and posted them.
