    I always say the time to buy a bargain is when you don't need it, because when you DO need it it won't be a bargain. ;)

    well I have been told to tidy my study prior to redecorating it, personally I quite like the clown wallpaper and curtains, it was the kids playroom, they range from 38 down to 28 but don't quote me, I have found quite a few things, a 1930's burman gearbox shell, a 1920's AJS shell, very corroded, some Vickers machine gun parts, a VHS recorder, an 8 track home player, three brief cases, some old AMAC carbs, lots of books, and a carpet! 20200326_231001_resized.jpg 20200326_230932_resized.jpg 20200326_230955_resized.jpg

    Frank, are you thinking of no "Place like Home"? Trevor used to hide in his shed drinking sherry to escape the wife.He was joined by William Gaunt trying to escape his family.

    Very good bit of kit. I collected some free stuff a while back, which included one and I gave it a friend who was starting up in artistic ironwork . I still feel virtuous about that, but could do with the drill!
    What was the 0320E2D in?

    GBHYR F172M that I restored in the 1990's? it is still flying out of Stapleford Essex, I am no longer licenced or probably fit enough, and not wealthy enough now!

    I used to jump with a girl that I think was killed in a helicopter crash flying from Stapleford back in the 90s ?

    If there are no tall crops in the field behind me and I stand on tiptoe in my bedroom I can just see the beacon on top of LAM vor mast that is at the top of the main runway at Stapleford, about 5 miles to the east, I can also see the red warning light on top of Canary Wharf if I look to the south, just, on a good day, about 15 miles away as the crow flies,
