    Spotted today....

    Like I said, I seem to recall it went to America. This would have been many years (20+) ago. But of course, spotted by 'Oxford Spectator' - so presumably it came back/never went?

    German Navy Surrender 1918

    I went for an interview with the council which covers Dartmouth many years ago. The guy from the council told me that there used to be a costal inlet which after WW1 had a number of German Submarines tied up in. The story was where they were latter became a landfill dump and is now a rereation ground. The German Goverment had asked for permission in more recent years to carry out a exploritory dig but had been refused permission. Don't know if anyone local can confirm this.

    Something to thin about. Please take the time to watch it.

    The really sad thing is the number of people it affects. Dan Snow's programme on shell shock should also be watched. World War One's Secret Shame: Shell Shock:- https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0brzl3w/wwis-secret-shame-shell-shock

    I agree,a war may be over in the fields but for lots of people war rages on in the mind.

    Dodge WC 51 or 52 or Canadian Wanted

    Probably something to do with the 75 year commemoration of Overlord in Normandy with every man and his dog heading over there with an MV or three! So good sellers market at present that will likely turn to a buyers market once all the enthusiasts have returned to Blighty and beginning to wonder if they would rather have cash than an ugly old Dodge! BTW, there is a Canadian/Danish WC52 on Milweb at present that looks like it needs a tidy, but price may be reasonable if nothing major is needed.

    Truck door

    Hi Nick Johns.. all I'm trying to say is maybe it would have been easier in the day to use a existing door from a older or current vehicle, instead of going through the costly and time consuming process of manufacture. And if so what could the doors be from? As I imagine they were built 1979/1980.... so would be from a older Donner, I think it maybe... And would be lovely to hear from someone involved in the build.. but there's a lot of guys and girls hear I imagine who look at old vehicles all the time and may think with a little bit of alteration that's a door from..... can you remember what productions you drove this truck on? Thank you for the link : )
  20. A friend sent this to me and I thought I would share it. Please watch it. https://www.youtube.com/embed/Wq0X0bwMprQ?feature=player_embedded Regards Rick.

    GX3315 - One of Mr Grundy's rebuilds (Wheels & Tracks 22). Very nice indeed. I seem to recall that it went to America?
  23. Any ideas why there is some holes on one of the blades? I think some sort of balancing / Harmonising .
  24. Replacement of leads are failry easy to pull through using a silicon grease /spray on old and new copper leads all the metal connections can be wire brushed before fitting all the best Laurence replace
