Another couple of pics of K7 in 66, with sandbags coming in and then being winched back ashore.

Found an envelope on my desk this morning with a half dozen original, colour pics from 67 inside sent anonymously. Will scan them and upload them tomorrow.

I had them looked at by an expert and it turns out they're not previously unseen and they belong to an individual who kicked up a stink last time any of his pics appeared on the net so I'll not post them but don't worry, you're not missing anything.

In the absence of the afore-mentioned pics, here is another colour image of K7 at Perth in 1965 before the Swan River demonstration runs.
Note the removal of the rear fixed fin.
