  1. Posted a bodge it answer to you in a PM for the wiper parking problem. Take out fuse, then add an inline fuse and switch across the box from wiper switch on vehicle to power side of fuse box.
  2. I had a Discovery, a very fetching Bronze called Kinver Sand-romantically named after the colour of the sandstone at Kinver. DVLA: Orange! Shees. 😪
  3. Funny enough, drill went straight through my head. 'Shout loudly 'Man Overboard' - Keep shouting until you are acknowledged. Do not take your eyes off casualty and point towards casualty, moving as required.
  4. Start swimming!! Flown on it's own. This flag O-Oscar- means Man Overboard!
  5. So there is a vested family intrest! I've read the stories, 617 of course and 9 sqaudron, the forgotten ones. Flying long distance over water is now taken for granted. Not to mention updated accurate met forcast Then to find a tiny little target and drop unguided ordnace right on it. Those men earnt thier pay!
  6. Joy of joys! Thanks to the help everyone has given me , My Discovery V8 now has a brand new MOT!! Only taken 18 months, though that includes a second rebuild ogf the front because some thiving *&%%%%% stole the winch and trashed the front.
  7. So are you ex RAF, who claim they 'Sunk it' , or ex Andrew who claim it wasn't 'sunk' as bits were still above water? l😀
  8. Johann, I've friends at Prestinge, and went up a few weeks back to play on the Gospel Pass, and other Welsh treasures. The Green Lanes are distingushed from the roads by how far the grass extends from the middle of the track. Saw one beautiful sign. On the 'Main' road Unsutiable for LGV's. A bit further down LGV Ignore Sat Nav and re route. Under that another larger sign , WE MEAN IT! There is a narrow bridge a thousand yards down the track. YOU WILL GET STUCK. Was narrow and all! The Discovery bareley went over it. Next trip ! This winter, preferably with snow and after over a year of bld sweat tears money and frustration- A 1999 V8 3.9 litre ES Auto, LPG converted , amongst other things, Discovery! Bring it on! 😁
  9. I saw it, and thought you couldn't make this up. I also have your Honour!! A bus load of passengers, and the people who live on the road to back me up! 😁 Oh forgot the PS. The week before the same set of drains, there had been another set of guys plus attached vans and gully sucker, doing the same work. Road still floods when it rains.
  10. Last week there was a machine cleaning gullys out at Bean in Kent. To begin with 4 vehicles and a sucker sitting for about for a couple of hours , with six guys playing with mobile phones. Followed by half an hour or so of two guys working the sucker with three men and a woman standing the other side of the road with clipboards watching them.
  11. My deepest condlonces to his family. Though we never met in person, he made my life intresting at times. He will be missed.
  12. . Maybe who ever wrote the script was a history buff and got confused with this event. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capture_of_the_Dutch_fleet_at_Den_Helder Just listened again to the broadcast yes, it says 'Sunk one hundred and five years ago by the British Army'. ❌
  13. Oh yes!! I heard this on the BBC Radio 4 news yesterday. Apparently and I quote - It was sunk by the Brtish Army. 🤣
