“Following comments received from members, we have altered the ‘Record View’ on the mobile version of our website. The view on a smartphone is now closer to that on our desktop website. It shows a gallery of thumbnails, each of which can be touched to display a complete high-resolution image. Below each high-resolution image there is a set of navigation buttons for moving backwards and forwards through the gallery or displaying them as a slide-show. Alternatively, the individual images can be swiped to move backwards or forwards through the gallery. The map view can be selected via the button below the thumbnail gallery, and can be enlarged to full-screen size via the ‘expand’ icon on the right-hand side.”

Les Sarkany refers to himself as a ‘bluenoser’ detectorist from Halifax in Nova Scotia who has visited the UK on a couple of occasions. He takes his nickname from the celebrated fishing and racing schooner ‘Bluenose’ built in Nova Scotia, which has since become an important icon for the province as well as Canada as a whole. In 2011 I commissioned him to write an article about his experiences for the UK Searcher magazine. what follows is uncut, but remember that it was written seven years ago and things change. For example, Les no longer works as a security officer at Halifax Airport.
