Sad to see that George C has died (for me Citadel 1964-66)
GRAND NATIONAL 2018
The weather plays a deciding role in horse racing but, what is unknown to the outside world, is that us METOBS have a more direct influence ….
The Grand National is Saturday week and us cloud observers will know that the previous two winners were MANY CLOUDS and last year ONE FOR ARTHUR. (made my grandchildren rich as I had it on all their ‘slips’ (I was the bookie!).
This year there are a few appropriate but outside the 40 horse limit (No 56 Splash of Ginge) (?Anyone heard of Gary since he relocated South?) and No 52 Vintage Clouds) These are unlikely to be runners.
One that is a likely runner at 40/1 is No 22 CHASE THE SPUD
Need I say more !

Sorry about the mistake - I meant Arthur, not Charlie.

Regarding the bedcover, they are rare as hen's teeth - don't know where they all went.
As there is one available to us (Charlie) why don't you get EXACT replicas made, and sell them at, say, £40 or £50 each. They are in great demand! If you are not an entrepreneur or salesman, ask Kenny Ashton to do it......failing that, I'll do it for you. Don't just forget it!

So very sad to see that George Clevett has crossed the bar.
George was one of my mentors on my first sea draft to the Eagle in late '58, the other one being Mick Lehan, the killick was John Moran.
Our paths crossed again much later at the Admiralty when George was in ASWEPS when it was in its infancy.
Remembered as a gentleman and an all around good bloke

Finally sold for £71 plus postage. Rare item considering there must have been thousands made. Cloudobservers was gifted one from one of our lady members, it is used as part of a display and always draws comments.
Many thanks for your reply.I will be continuing to visit the site.
(Please give my regards to Colin, served on the "Intrepid" together.)

Websites that include a guestbook or some form of contact are unfortunately the target of spam, phishing
and other attacks. The more prominent the site the greater the need for security as these websites attract more
jokers from curious nation states down to some ex crab typing in his three bed semi.
In the latest version of Cloud observers we have up to now deleted 145 thousand Spam Comments alone. It may be that one or two genuine messages have been
lost in this necessary filtration however, we structure the site in such a way as
messages from members and other trusted parties pass straight through.
Hope this answers your question

I look at your web-site very frequently & I've noticed that a lot of messages & comments are not published, why is that ?
