Hello and welcome to the 17th revision of the Janvision Gallery. My name is Pete Biggadike and I live in Norfolk. I retired from the Royal Air Force in 1993 after almost 40 years of service. My service history is probably very similar to that of many servicemen in the post WW11 era. However having been a keen amateur photographer since the early 1950's, I managed to document a great deal of my service with photographs which I have decided to share. In an attempt to try to provide a little more interest in this long running site I have also written more text to include not only personal information but general service stories and anecdotes. I have now included photographs passed to me by friends with their permission. I hope they retain your interest and further your enjoyment. My thanks go to all who have made contact since the site first went online in 2002/3. If you do enjoy my website please let me know by sending an email and I will reply as soon as possible.

I continue to receive requests for copies of my photographs. For various reasons I regret I will not supply copies to either private individuals or publishers. To prevent embarrassment to all concerned please don't ask.

I must emphasise that the site is not intended to be a source of reference or a historical record and should not be used as such!  It is under continuing development with regard to content and layout. I welcome emails correcting any mistakes if they are written in a friendly manner. Any other approach will not receive a reply!
