  1. I note that you have a passenger seat operation switch fitted.😃😄 (Someone has to be in the seat every time the jeep moves.)
  2. If possible could you let me know what is the set up for the Electolosis in the bucket? And the tank please. What can be used for Anodes / Cathodes? You mention Soda / Water mix any quantities? Anything you should not use the process on? Following all your posts with interest. TIA
  3. It may be a bit of a makeshift but the big question is Does it work? If yes then what the heck.
  4. Found this link to a vehicle dealers. Does it still exist? If yes and the web stock list is up to date then some vehicles of interest to some. http://www.rushgreenmotors.com/home.htm
  5. Sapele is another possibity.
  6. The T+G planking on my Snowplough was Pitch Pine at about 1 1/2" thick by 8ft long and 6 1/2 " wide. That also had chamfers on the face side of the joint.
  7. Did anyone get to any of the RE Demonstrations? Our Plant course had a slight involvement back in 1979 at Lodge Hill. Apologies for the quality but it was a pocket instamatic.
  8. The CP in the Reg plate indicates an item of Construction Plant and is not registered in the usual military format.
  9. First priority when packing your kit on excercise was to get hold of some rolls of CUMFYBUM. Sounds a bit like the current situation.
  10. And no refuelling either. Is there a current time from the top of the BT Tower to the top of the Empire State?
  11. During th ecurrent shut down of everything, I ventured into the garage to start a bit of dejunking. Found this in a corner. Approx 17 inch long by 13 across the head. Marked US Diamond Back 1945. I am thinking an Entrenching tool isssued to Infantry bit small for a vehicle version. Is there a value?
  12. I used to be in a TA Royal Engineer Airfield unit based at RAF Leeming. As par of our vehicle allcation we had 2 Saracens initially from about 1989 to 1992 These bits of armour had all been modified with a Plexiglas cupola over the commanders position. This was to enable better visibility when doing a recce for bomb damage on the runways, but did create vehicle access problems. The vehicles had no other purpose other than airfield use. Does anyone have any photos of these vehicles so fitted? Similar vehicles may have been at Marham, Coningsby, Waddington, Coltishall, Honington, North Luffenham, Lossiemouth or Kinloss. Thanks.
