  7. Update Received from the Secretary "I have the following information from Murdo Fraser MSP. His amendments were presented in the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee and debated. There was considerable support for an exemption for historic vehicles but discussion as to whether it should appear in the Act or Regulations. I quote from Mr Fraser “Responding to the comments, the Transport Secretary Michael Matheson MSP acknowledged that there was an issue with historic vehicles. He said that he and his officials would look at how they might best incorporate a protection for historic vehicles into the Bill, and he would be happy to discuss this with me in coming weeks, as the Bill progresses.” As a result Mr Fraser withdrew his amendments at that point. I think this a really good outcome and will ensure that the Federation find a way of monitoring this subject as it develops and also try to open a direct conduit to officials".
  8. I have contacted the manufacturer but he doesn't have any instructions for the unit. Has any one a copy or any information Thanks in advance

  12. Hope he got the recognition he deserved, sign writers frequently did not, I knew one who was in the RAF
  13. Thanks for this, it jogs a memory and asks a question. In Dundee, there was a building, now owned by the University which had what looked like divisional flash's on the stone entrance columns, is there similar guidance. My father was the Maintenance Officer and pointed them out to me, they appear to have gone now
  14. Bought it from a reputable supplier said NATO engine blue so assumed okay, paint from them has had no issues before, even the black paint which was on the cylinder head has gone
  15. Thanks, the cylinder head was new and painted black sprayed the engine blue straight on and mechanics fitted it, noticed today after first 25 miles when checking for a run tommorrow
  16. Sorry to hijack this thread, I sprayed my engine casing with the blue paint, ran engine and the paint has stripped off, any suggestions?
  17. Managed to get home and amongst my readily available cook books is "Feeding Tommy", it does show a Soyer stove, its written by Andrew Robertshaw, it says he is the Director of the Royal Logistic Corps Museum. There is no indication of sizes etc. The book was published in 2013. There is a reference to "Manual of Military Cooking and Dietary 1918"
  18. Please see below from the SMVF secretary; Please take the time to read this important message and the attachment from the Federation - they explain how the future use of our historic vehicles may be at risk and the action you can take to help correct issues within the proposed Transport Scotland Bill. The attachment is quite long at three pages but it fully exlains the issues and contains advice on how to help on page 3. Time is very short as representations must be with your MSPs 'before' 4th June. You can find e-mail contact details for your MSPs at https://www.parliament.scot/msps.aspx and note that in addition to your own constituency MSP you will have a number of regional MSPs representing your area who you could write to.
