Otley - Bromyard Avenue Acton

'I have just met up with your excellent site via a link on David Absalom's British Pictures site.
Just a little snippet on "Otley" -some of it was filmed in Bromyard Avenue, Acton, opposite what was then Government Buildings.

At that time I was PA to the RAF Provost Marshal and my office overlooked the Avenue, so I saw them filming all morning what took about 20 seconds on screen.

I managed to get a couple of photos of the goings-on and would be happy to let you have copies if you are interested. As it so happened I was posted out to the Defence Attache staff in Moscow in November 1968 and it was some time before I saw the film.'
