  1. Berlin Brigade Challengers

    Certainly all the first aid boxes at work were green with white crosses before I retired last year. jh
  2. Don't worry, it will become an "aspiration" after a few years when they discover it's impossible. jh
  3. Photobucket.......

    The clue is in the thumbnail above, Photobucket just don't want people linking to 'third party' sites without getting some cash. Your original Photobucket folder is unchanged, which is why you can still see the pictures there, they have just stopped linking to external sites, I assume you can still share with other PB users. Google offers free hosting jh
  4. If you wade through the civilian 4x4s (interesting in themselves), this chap has some nice rare and nicely restored MVs in Hong Kong, http://truckyeah.jalopnik.com/this-man-is-the-four-wheel-drive-king-of-the-world-and-1795407444?utm_source=jalopnik_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2017-06-09 jh
  5. Dorking covenanter recovery

    The idea of the Home Guard having tanks sounds like an unmade "Dad's Army" plot? jh
  6. 'Where Eagles Dare' German vehicles

    Details here, http://www.imcdb.org/movie_65207-Where-Eagles-Dare.html jh
  7. Home from the range

    I can only apologise and plead ignorance. I'd not seen these tanks mentioned before. jh
  8. Home from the range

    These photos were put up on Facebook earlier They were removed from the Haltern Training Area last year (2016) to a scrapyard in Aachen. jh
  9. What to attend?

    To be honest any show involving moving armour (indeed any vehicles) is going to be a 'behind the barrier' deal these days, health & safety and insurance requirements. I'm not sure what interaction you are hoping for, but climbing on tanks is not encouraged much either for the same reasons, though the modern equipment displays at the TM usually permit it, ladders and gantries being provided. I'm a bit baffled by the prices you quote, the TM website gives £38 per adult for a weekend ticket and £23 per day, the £110 is a premium ticket, which seems a lot (in my opinion) extra for a seat, food and drink and a programme? The premium tickets do not claim to give greater access to the vehicles. jh
  10. Normandy Tank museum auction results

    I guess that these prices are bonkers, yet they are probably lower than a lot of "classic" cars which are seen as investments? jh
  11. Photos and video in MOD property.

    It's odd because the internet (or parts of it) features plenty of photos of the crews filming "Doctor Who" or "Top Gear" if they are filming in a public place, so it seems a tad churlish to complain about photos taken on private property or in the MoD's case 'Crown Property'. jh
  12. Photos and video in MOD property.

    Sorry to be a pendant, but it's "copyright", the right to copy! jh
  13. I've seen firms selling artificial lawns that have their vans covered in 'grass', I presume as advertising. jh
  14. Hot rod tank

    Good point, but the account says, "..The Air Corps had five other Merlins ready - including numbers 191406, 190911 and 191281. These were all Merlin Mk. 55M engines formerly fitted in Air Corps Vickers Supermarine VS.506 Seafire LF III fighters" Though it also mentions that the superchargers were removed! jh
  15. Hot rod tank

    I believe the Irish Defence Force put a Merlin in a Churchill.http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=12989.0;wap jh
