Welcome to the Edinburgh Contingent of Comex 3

This site is based on the log kept during the journey overland to India in 1969.
You can navigate the expedition journey using the log. Each page of the log has a set of photographs associated with it. All the photographs are scanned at high resolution even though the quality of the originals leaves a lot to be desired in some cases. You can download the photos for printing if you wish but please remember they are copyright of the original photographer. No 3rd party sales or blackmail allowed without written permission from the photographer! Please note also that because the photographs are large (to allow good quality prints) the speed of viewing as a slideshow is compromised. No such thing as a free lunch!
The photographs have not been "cherry picked" - this is the full set I have been given, so please be aware that the quality is, shall we say, variable!
There are also sets of photos from the 2 reunions we've had (so far), and other albums from, for example, Kirsteen's trip to Kashmir

I shall be asking for text contributions from people where the log does not "say it all".

The site (and journey) can also be navigated using the Search box on the left where terms like "Pru" and "camel" are sure to find a hit or two.
The ultimate aim is to copy the website on to a CD (or more likely a DVD) for personal perusal. Most of the functionality should be preserved on DVD/CD but it is unlikely the search facility can be made to work in its web-based form. However, that's another day!

The Log

Navigate the photograph gallery by using the log of the journey.
Sets of photographs appropriate to each log page can be viewed or downloaded and printed. Phenominal amount of information from Jim Lindsay's dairies which feature on most log pages. Very many thanks Jim, for all your hard work. Jim also kindly scanned some memorabilia which you can inspect under the "Memorabilia corner" link on some pages (just above the photos)
