  1. Coming along nicely. I am really looking forward to seeing her come alive again. Good work. Steve.
  2. It's great to have you back Dan. This is one project that I, and I'm sure many others, have missed. What you have done so far is brilliant, so please don't let it go to waste. We are all rooting for you. Best wishes and good luck, Steve.
  3. Wow, I hope your cutting discs come at a discount! Good work, but rather you than me. The restoration is really inspirational and much appreciated by an old armchair warrior like myself. Keep up the good work. Steve.
  4. Hi Bob. If you post this in the Transporters and Wreckers section you are more likely to get some replies. Best of luck, Steve
  5. Thanks for posting, even if just for those of us cheering from the sidelines. That is interesting stuff. Steve.
  6. Hi Gerlof. There are a lot of knowledgeable people on this forum, so you are very likely to get what you need. Just in case, though, it may be worth inquiring on the Great War Forum too. Good luck, Steve.

    Oi, don't be ageist! There are a lot of old people who are very tech savvy. Sadly, I'm not one of them, so I would have to call myself old and ignorant. Steve.
  8. The week is up and no takers, so for completeness, I confirm that they are in the bin: shame! Steve.
  9. That is a place of wonder, and not far from me, but sadly beyond my ability to save anything.

    I hope you find that it gives you all you need. There is plenty of good advice available and some very helpful people. So welcome and enjoy. Steve.
  11. Once Chris had kindly posted my pictures I had intended to ask, but forgot, if anyone had identified what the vehicles was that I described as "some kind of plant". Is it a Muirhill or something else? I've always wondered. Steve.
  12. From a cache of dozens of old MoD (and War Office) photographs, which I have got rid of over several years, I am down to the last two. They are so uninteresting that I will be surprised if anyone wants them, even free, but here goes. They are 6" x 8" pictures of a Leyland Daf 1900 tractor unit in RN livery, Reg No 30 RN 26. One is taken from front right, the other from left rear. The pictures are presumably taken for use in an official publication, so not very exciting. Anyway, if anyone wants them, I am happy to pay for postage to anyone who can give them a new life. If not snapped up within the week, they will end up in the bin, and I would hate that. Steve.
  13. Great pictures and thanks for posting. One comment though, it is a Centurion being recovered in No 3, rather than a Chieftain. Steve.
  14. Thanks for taking the trouble Chris. As mentioned previously, the originals are up for grabs, so if anyone would like them, free, please PM an address and I will send them on their way. Steve
  15. If you like, you could make a contribution to the HMVF. How does that sound? Steve.
  16. I looked but couldn't find your address Adrian, so please PM. As for postage, if it's only a few quid it's not worth worrying about. Steve.
  17. Then yours they are Adrian. I think I have your address, as I sent you some special tools several years ago, but I will get back to you if necessary. Otherwise I will let you know when they are on their way. Steve.
  18. I am having a clear out and have found some artillery related photos (amongst others). They are official, posed, MoD pictures, possibly for use in publications, as at least one appears to have been retouched and another is annotated, so is definitely for an official publication. They are all mounted on card and the pictures are in the region of 28cm x38cm. Two are stamped on the reverse with a Royal School of Artillery stamp. They are of: 155mm SP 70 155mm FH 70 105mm Light Gun 5.5 or 4.5 Howitzer (this is the annotated one) Would anybody like them, free of charge? Steve
  19. Thanks Chris. I'm sure you will think it worthwhile. Steve.
  20. Hi Doug. Ref the HSP, there was a thread last year in the Aviation section about aerial delivery. Perhaps a mention of it there would be useful. Steve.
  21. Hello Chris. When you picked up what I posted yesterday I hoped you were answering my plea, but you made no mention of it. Would you be interested in me sending you some photos, or would anyone else? Steve.
  22. Hi all. Seeing this thread reminded me that I have a few (actually 9 to be precise) photos from ATTURM Instow. They are original MoD photos, mostly stamped on the reverse with the ATTURM photographic section stamp. Four are of some kind of plant equipment in various poses, three are Landrovers wading in the sea and one driving through a trough and the last is a 1 Tonne Landrover all at sea. I have now scanned them (three are too big for my scanner, but I got the main content) but I can't post them, as they are the wrong format and I am pretty useless with that kind of thing. Would anyone be willing to act as an intermediary if I were to send them via email? Here's hoping, Steve. PS: I am having a clearout and if anyone wants the originals they are very welcome to them.
