Re: Alvis Stawart information

There are probably a few well ventilated ones on Nordhorn Ranges in the Netherlands! I had the delightful task of guiding several tornadoes and Harriers on practice strafing runs on a forward air control course in the 90's. Picture the view from the tall range observation tower located near the rang...

L322 4.4 V8

I bought a 4.4 v8 vogue last year. Its a bit of a work in progress! (Isn't anything with a green oval badge, I hear you all say!) She's done 150,000 miles and has developed a bit of a rattle.

Re: WHAT COLOUR'S YOURS?

Landrover Cotswold Green.
Only because it was in the end of line bin at a discount and I was rebuilding on a tight budget.
The next time it gets rebuilt I'll powdercoat with the correct BS or RAL colour.

Re: They Shall Not Grow Old - film

Watched it at the cinema in Leicester at High Cross.
If you get the chance to see it on the big screen, do so. Probably one of the most thought provoking pieces of work on the Great War I think I have ever watched.

Re: Hello (Stolen)

Sorry to hear this, I had a bike pinched years ago so I can very much sympathise. Mine did eventually get found and returned, thanks to a couple of very sharp eyed bobbies on the beat in Birmingham.

Hopefully yours will come back to you, too.
