I had a nagging feeling in my mind this was not the Les MC I have met. The last contact |I had with him was when he advertised (somewhere or other) for spare ENELa Nikon Lithium Batteries. I was able to sell him 3 spares that I had at the time. Then he live in deepest Northumberland about 35 miles north of Newcastle. (Otherwise known as the 'back of beyond'!)

I first met him way back in the 90's when he came to my old club in Sussex. I realised then he didn't take fools gladly when he started to wind up an extremely vociferous club member who disagreed with his idea of a landscape. We could see what he was doing, to the amusement of all, apart from the 'victim' who was totally out of order!

I did a thorough search (which I should have done before i started this thread) and determined that I last heard from Les in February 2018. That postdates the thread about the other McLean begun in 2017. So, that settles that!

For what it's worth, he emailed me at that time because he had looked "in to Fadu from time to time and noticed your post...".

So, he may still be checking in here from time to time.

In any event, I shall email him.

Cheers, all!
