    I must have been dreaming but I thought Suggs was only there for about one hour half way through the afternoon but then of course he must have used his expertise to tell Rick how to proceed!!

    i did have my revenge on suggs. on the tuesday morning my mind was on my family not the recovery, as i went to the dig site there was a group of film types hanging around, they'd heard about my family and were shaking my hand commiserating. i shook this one fella's hand then realised it was suggs and i said the first thing that came into my mind " f@ckin hell suggs you've aged" don't think it went down well but then again i'm not known for my diplomacy

    Its a shame and scandal...... Too give credit to anyone but Rick over this whole project is madness and one step beyond ......! We all know who is the real hero in this...and anyone who disagrees is an embarrassment and needs to shut up and get the night boat to Cairo!...its enough to give you a cardiac arrest !!!Everyone in our house knows Rick is the Prince of Tanks.......

    " f@ckin hell suggs you've aged" don't think it went down well but then again i'm not known for my diplomacy

    I think that was just 'One step beyond!'


    Strangely enough for a person involved in saving vehicles Suggs doesn't mention 'Salvage Squad' in his newish autobiography.

    For those unfamiliar with Salvage Squad it was like Combat Dealers except something was actually restored though not always by the Salvage Squad themselves....

    It is up to the standard of most British newspaper journalism. Why let the facts get in the way of a story.
