It is with sadness that we learned that Ken Clarke, the founder of Battle Camera Club (as it was then), died on 1st December. Happily, Ken was able to attend our 50th anniversary celebrations in June this year. Ian Rumley-Dawson, a member of Battle Camera Club for many years, has written a delightful memoire, which you can find by clicking here

Tonbridge Camera Club won the competition with 145 points - Battle had 138 points, so it was a very close run thing. David Howse's image, Squabbling White Tailed Sea Eagles, was chosen by the judge for comment and the image scored 19 (out of 20).
