    A real hero

    Fascinating story, thanks for posting it.
  4. Thanks for the confirmation, I don`t suppose you have any photographs?
  5. Thanks for the photo, could you take a shot of the dash please as I have some painted over stickers on mine and I would like to have copies made. Thanks.
  6. Thanks guys. Ref the record card: RAF West Raynham 18/12/72 Marham - West Raynham 19/1/76 The history card confirms its colour as Blue/Grey, It also looks like it might have been used by 100 Sqn which was flying Canberras
  7. I am trying restore my LWT Land Rover back to its former glory. I need a colour photo - if possible showing any decals etc. My lwt is one of the 1st Series 3`s that entered the RAF in 20.11.72 . Any images would be great. Reg no. 53AM78

    Burma Spitfires , check your piggy banks

    There was supposed to be lots of kit dumped in Lough Erne near Enniskillen in County Fermanagh. I was asked many years ago if I would help retrieve some of the Jeeps that were dumped. I didn`t as the gear was supposed to be covered in razor wire :shocked:. If you want a Sunderland there has been sonar surveys carried out in Lough Erne and again there is supposed to be a few sitting on the Lough bottom. Water visibilty less than 1" due to the peat water.

    So what do we all do for a living then

    Awesome job. I spent 20+ years exploring ww1 + ww2 ship and submarine wrecks and sonar would have made it much easier. I have an internet business selling products worldwide.
  11. Have you seen my models? The models on this thread are amazing and of a standard I could never reach. The faces are fantastic.

    Chevs rescued

    Fantastic thread. This should be an inspiration to everyone. I have been thinking on enrolling on a welding course and after seeing what you have done maybe in 20 years time I will be able to accomplish the same (except I will be 70) .

    Goodbye to the Lancaster

    A few years ago I was diving in the Irish sea and a Lancaster and a Flying Fortress flew over our boat, the noise was awesome. Watching your clip sent a shiver through me. Thanks for uploading it.
