I remember George Mock well from Olympus Talk Forum when I was shooting a C-8080. He always has good stories about flying in Canada just above Detroit. George was a Dough Boy, and that means something about his task as a WWII serviceman. I'm not sure what that means, if he was a pilot or a paratrooper or something else in the war. He has a charming way with the ladies that always leads to charming photos of the women he meets on his photo outings. There was always a pretty female as a parting shot in any series he posted.

Yes, George was 80+ a few years ago, but he never held our collective lack of experience against us.

No need to talk about him in the past tense.

He is still active, but with Sony (the dirty traitor...)

You may be right about WW-II : I was just assuming we was a pilot because he is always around planes since I got to know him. But that may have come later.

Hi Roel,

My recollections of George's posts are from the past on a forum that no longer exists, Olympus Talk Forum (OTF). George the man is definitely still with us and posting on the Sony SLR forum. Here's a photo thread of his from the first page that sums up a lot of what I was saying about him.

Thanks again for reminding us of George and blue skies.
