  1. Belfast - Sydenham bypass (near the George Best City Airport)
  2. It's not a cheap way to go, as a Rhino 4200 costs about 70 quid, and you buy the cartridges with the heatshrink in it ready to go at 19 quid for 1.5 metres (although that would make a lot of tags). See: http://www.labelzone.co.uk/dymo-rhino-4200-hand-held-label-printer/p2842#tdesc_9 http://www.labelzone.co.uk/s0718270-6mm-yellow-rhino-heat-shrink-tubing/p432 They appear on ebay from time to time as well. Not sure how long-lasting they are, so you'd want to check that out before spending a lot of money, but it is meant for professional applications. Note that some of the Larkspur radio kit from the 50s used heatshrink with hand-written labelling as well.
  3. Dymo Rhino label machines can print on yellow or white heatshrink sleeving, so you should be able to get a similar effect....
  4. Ooops - the link got truncated and I didn't check it after I'd posted it.... Try: http://gpoclocksystems.byethost22.com/misc/proud.pdf I had referenced it in a separate posting about generators on the Trailers, Plant & Equipment section, and it was correct there, but got messed up in the meantime. Not sure why the WWII war diary of Royal Enfield is on a website about GPO clock systems, but it's there, so don't knock it! Not a lot of detail there, but some interesting photos. Chris
  5. I was looking for info on the 80W lightweight charging set via Google with Enfield Cycle Company as part of the search term and came across the following link: http://gpoclocksystems.byethost22.com Not sure if this is widely known about, but it has limited details and photos of Royal Enfield war production, with some details of Flying Flea and WD/CO bike production. Thought it might be of interest if you haven't seen it before. Chris
  6. By 'google accident' I came across the following description of what Royal Enfield had produced during WWII - motorbikes obviously, but also aiming equipment and generating sets - there is a page relating to the 80W Lightweight Charging Set, of which I have a couple, including one marked ECC. At least this confirms that the ECC stands for Enfield Cycle Company... http://gpoclocksystems.byethost22.com/misc/proud.pdf Not sure why the site has it included, but thought someone would be interested. I will post the link in the motorcycles section as well Chris
  7. Hi from Belfast - I don't have any vehicles, alas, but have a reasonable WWII British Signals collection. Have been lurking particularly on the British Wireless forum, but thought it was time I contributed. I'm an electronics designer in my day job, working on automotive electronics. As an aside, my dad was in the Royal Engineers from 1944 to1948, most of which he spent at Tel-El-Kebir garrison in Egypt - I have his photo album, so must post some pics from it in due course. Best regards Chris
