Better On A Camel – intimate BOAC memories

I have been pointed to a new website devoted to recollections from former British Overseas Airways Corporation – BOAC – employees about their time at this post-World War Two airline institution, which was merged with British European Airways in 1974 to create British Airways.


The author, former BOAC staffer Peter Jones, has gone to spectacular efforts to compile stories from around the BOAC empire. It was meant to be a book but apparently a publisher has proved elusive. The tales range from Burma to Iran and from Ghana to Panama.

For a touch of nostalgia and for a feeling of the adventure these BOAC activitists felt about being in the airline business back in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, take a look.

    I directed photo from your burial container on my iphone 3gs, anybody acquiring the idea on the iphone 3gs experienced the meaning “missing plug-in”, without picture seemed to be affixed. What plug in is important, and its it important own phone, or maybe will it be something that needs to have already been provided with the photography?
