Default Les McLean

I used to hear from Les McLean periodically. However, I have moved house and he may not have my new contact info. Anyway, is anybody still in contact with Les, and can maybe email some contact info? Thanks!

He was alive and well last time I spoke to him a couple of months ago! He is still at the address and phone number he's been at for a few years now.

I am very pleased to hear that Richard, thanks for putting the record straight.

I'm a bit confused, after reading the above links posts and then Richard's post...

I say confused, as Les' daughter signed in to the link above and confirmed his passing. I can only presume that it was her?...

There is more than one Les McLean. The one TalkPhotography were talking about is one of that forum's members:

https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/me...s-mclean.2654/

The one I know and the one I suspect this present thread is about is not from Yorkshire, he's from the north east, and he doesn't ride a scooter!

Ah, that would make sense Richard.

It must be odd reading about one's demise, only to pinch oneself to double check that you're still around.

May Les have many more years to come.

I avoid this kind of trauma of having to read about my "end"( not even a pretty sight when alive ) by not being on Facenovel, Birdsong or Instabasicmetricweight
