Gan 2010

I've just returned from a week on Gan and wondered if I could suggest having some of my photos on your website.
I already have some shots on the site - I was on Marine Craft, and one of the last 100 guys to leave the island in 1976 - but thought your 'viewers' would like to see some recent ones of Gan, the camp and its buildings, the neighbouring islands, etc. Especially as I got permission from the Defence Force to go across to the other side of the island, which is normally out of bounds.
