However, the one thing that is really distressing is the loss of my father's camera equipment. He was a professional photographer, and he died back in 1962. The only thing I had left of his was his camera and accessories. Everything is gone - camera, case, lenses, exposure meters and camera bag.
The complete set is probably unique, so I'm posting this blog in the hope that someone will spot it, and I may get something back. It's probably been sold by now, or pawned, or offered to a collector of vintage cameras.
Here's the camera, with the Ultron lens it had fitted at the time.
The complete set was in a brown shoulder bag with a front pocket - on my dad's shoulder in the picture at the top of this blog.
