Full photographic coverage of the project could not have been accomplished so expertly without the invaluable help of Lt Cdr Alan Veal RN for the helmet-mounted camera shots (seen above right), along with the other three stalwart members of the professional photographic team who joined the Challenge as operations progressed.

To my good friends John Robert Young, Jeremy Clifton-Gould and the late Russel West I offer my heartfelt thanks for a superb job under sometimes difficult conditions.
