Yes it is Diggory Venn. I got to it just in time as it has now been moved to the Dyson Factory HQ in Malmesbury and it is no longer on public display!!!

A Tenerife sunset!
See previous photo.
Photo taken by my better half from their villa in Golf Del Sur! Mount Teide is a volcano on Tenerife in the Canary Islands. It is 3,718 metres (12,198 ft) high which is the highest point in Spain and the highest point above sea level of the islands in the Atlantic. At 7,500 ft from its base on the ocean floor it is the third highest volcano on a volcanic ocean island in the world after Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa in Hawaii. Its elevation makes Tenerife the tenth highest island in the world. It remains active and its last eruption occurred in 1909.
I recall reading that the ravens were taken to a safe place during the "Bird flu" period, so they wouldn't get in contact with wild birds. We all know what will happen to the kingdom if they disappear...
Thanks for looking, Dave. Every family has its history I guess and I could so easily have gone to the USA with mum in 1946. Good job I didn't 'cos I'd probably have copped VietNam! Good job Grandad stopped us going! Yeah lots of our family members in Ravensden church and Sharnbrook and Elstow churches too! Also several old school chums in Sharnbrook church!!! If you GE Ravensden and go up the High Street past the Horse & Jockey pub to the end you'll find the former Police House where the family lived during the war on the left. It has been completely rebuilt but has retained some of the old brickwork and the old police stone plaque.
