1970 This was the year when our elder daughter, Mary, was born. I did my first "house jobs" as a newly qualified doctor
1971 I completed my junior hospital doctor jobs, the last being as an obstetric house officer at Queen Mary's Maternity Home in Hampstead. We went with Mary on holiday to Ibiza. In July I started a Short Service Commission in the Royal Air Force. My father, who had been in poor health, died suddenly in November.
1972 Our son, John, was born in March. In July I made my second visit to Iceland. In the autumn we were posted to Cyprus where I became a medical officer at the Families Clinic.
1973 We had a holiday in Israel in March. In April our younger daughter Sarah was born at the Royal Air Force Hospital at Akrotiri base.
1974 Our posting in Cyprus was brought to a premature end in the wake of the Turkish invasion. Jessie, my late father's housekeeper, came out to stay with us early in the year. After our return from Cyprus we had another holiday in the west of Ireland. In the autumn we were posted to RAF Benson, where the Queen's Flight is based.
1975 This was the year when we had a memorable holiday in the West of Ireland with three weeks' glorious weather in May.
1976 I completed my Short Service Commission and we moved to south east London where I joined the Forest Hill Road group practice. Agnes' father died in July that year.

1978 This year we took our first camping holiday in France
1979 The last few slides before I moved to colour negatives. I returned to taking transparencies in 1986.
