Bush Telly gear is often loaned to members of the crew who return it and they have often loaned their own gear to Bush Telly so it has been of mutual benefit.
Alexander "Sasha" Shamilov was loaned this gear by me late last year. I only found out a few weeks ago that he is now living in Clitheroe, Lancashire, UK and the gear has disappeared. He may be working as a welder in Burnley Lancashire.
