My name's Will and I am an ex firefighter living in Bonnie Scotland. I came across this site when I was reading a posting on the Glen Campbell forum.
I have been a fan of the Duke's since I was 5 years old. My dad was the projectionist at the local cinema and he would take me with him when they were showing westerns, especially Big John's films.
Before I became a firefighter I followed in Dad's footsteps and ended up as the chief projectionist till the cinema closed in the early 70's.
It's just in the past seven years that I have been able to indulge in my love of westerns and John Wayne. I have quite a few movies on DVD & VHS. And have a collection of western memorabilia. Including blank firing peacemakers and replica Winchester, boots, spurs and hats amongst others. We are only allowed replicas in the UK due to the Dunblane incident.
My favourite movie is True Grit has it starred my favourite actor and my favourite singer. When True Grit was shown at our Cinema I had a private viewing all to myself. No disturbance from any audience.
I look forward to reading all the posts and learning from those more knowledgeable than I.
