During development of the website for the Scottish Parachute
many people provided pictures and items from the club's past for a
section on the club history. These
history archives have continued to grow and grow.
The items existed in albums and
scrapbooks all around the world getting damaged, lost and forgotten about.
This project allows them all to be shared, without any danger to the
originals, though some of the
pictures are already the worse for years of wear.
The collection should be
of interest to anyone who has ever visited or been a member of the
Scottish Parachute Club, or
who has an interest in the
days of parachuting.
I hope you enjoy this collection which has been a labour of love of mine
for 5 years now. As a newcomer to the club, I accept there are
bound to be omissions and inaccuracies. Whilst I apologise for these, I also
invite you to contact
me with any corrections.
This is very much a living project
and if you can add to it with corrections
or contributions, please contact
