I have a lot of hoses old back packs webbbing etc. plus fins. I have also just been given an immaculate looking Snark regulator and two Aladin dive computers (30 years old). The computers have flat batteries but were given to me in their original packing with the manual. I have no use for any of this kit and know that a competent DIYer can replace batteries on the computers. If anybody is interested or know somebody who might be email me at pglanv@aol.com

Thanks to those who showed interest. Computers now spoken for but the other stuff isn't. I am wondering whether if CDG members have a meet on Mendip, I could bring a load up and people can rummnage through it. Some of it really should go the Historical Diving Society it is so old but not all of it (I hope).

Speaking generally; regarding anything very old, from time to time the CDG has been offered items of equipment with historical value. In one case recently I looked into this, with help from some Central Committee members. The CDG has no repository for such items but it has links with various organisations which will often look after things (for example Wells museum). The important thing is to know where such pieces of equipment are. As we don't have the resources to accept these items ourselves, is there something to be said for at least keeping a list of where they've gone, so that when folk ask about them in future we at least have some sort of central register?

One other benefit of setting up such a system is that perhaps potential contributors would have more confidence in offering such items to us in the first instance and we would then have influence over whichever good homes they end up in. It's better if the CDG is involved in such transfers because our Group probably has the greatest understanding of their significance. Maybe this could usefully be chatted through at the next Central Committee meeting?

At present Forrest Wilson has Oliver Wells AFLO and lots of dive logs he is happy to send them back if the CDG want them (and pay shipping).

Pete why not take the newer bits to the CDG training camp on Mendip in June?

That's right Andrew - it was one of the items I had in mind when I posted the suggestion of setting up a register above. In that particular case, if it was on a list of items of interest, if anyone ever wanted to see it, or photograph it, or whatever, at least they'd know where it currently is. In the meantime perhaps we look for any opportunity to get it back over here - and into a proper archive (such as Wells Museum or the HDS). At least we'd then not lose track of it.

The point is a list takes up virtually no room; it's the best compromise if we don't have the resources to store the items themselves.

I don't see what's not to like, so it'd be grand if the CC would look at this possibility.
