  1. IR Heliograph that can only be picked up by a similar receiver or relay/rebro device?
  2. Has it anything to do with insect control. Seen something similar used inside tents and buildings to repel mosquitos etc think it worked on sound/vibration waves
  3. Mobile route/traffic light or hazard marker, similar to our flashing orange lights of today?
  4. Is it a mobile telegraph wire testing machine or remote demolition firing point? Dynamo charges up a capacitor type of valve or battery to provide electrical charge/ discharge etc Or an early type of load sensing apparatus
  5. thanks might follow this up
  6. Thanks for the info, will try and run by the one in Larnaca. Re lightweight is there any more info or link to him on ebay as search reveals nothing positive (might just be me)
  7. Although just announced George Alexander Louis I was in favour of Austin Cambridge:cool2:
  8. Hi I will be taking a short trip to Cyprus later in the year, visiting old haunts at Episkopi, Dhakelia and Nicosia, and was wondering if anyone had any interesting details or whereabouts of WW2 MVs or ex greek army jeeps etc etc /sales or museums that I can call into - only access to the greek side and not planning to go to the north. I can also access all MOD sites on my MOD90 if anything inside military properties. Cheers Gary
  9. Film about Arnhem Battle made by soldiers who returned 1 year after the battle - no actors and some great footage of many different vehicles (Allied and Axis) and aircraft etc. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3e6S8rg9_c gary
  10. yep agree there but also depending on the RSM at time as some were anally retentive and would not allow them to be trimmed etc
  11. female hygeine product disposal point (red spot) lol, i'll get me coat :blush:
  12. Obviously was never taught his HRD (Harness Release and Drag) drills. he should have been pulling on one of the lower lift webs to collapse the chute or else the yankee drill of getting into a crouch run and run round it to collapse from apex lol gary
  13. no probs, just glad the weather held and the owners made the effort gary
  14. Haven't seen any since, would be nice to see one with brass fittings etc gary
  15. Not a full report per se but a bit of footage from the parade through the town to the Kings park. after the marching contingent comes the vehicles from the WDRG (front jeep driven by me) and the Scottish Military Vehicle Group with some of the veterans unable to march on board, enjoy. Gary
  16. alternatively just fill your tent with cats...you get 18 watts of heat per cat so 100 should do and for really cold days add another 50 or so....lol
  17. Most army tents are draughty and have plenty of ventilation. We use a wood burning stove in a 9x9, bell tent, 160lber etc and no ill effects as long as not tied up like a kipper, even a flap loose will give good vent as most of smoke and nasty gases go up flue being replaced by the through draft into the bottom of the stove. for extra peace of mind put a monoxide alarm slightly above level you sleep at and position biggest snorer nearest stove- when he stops snoring then time to evacuate lol:D
  18. To help Paypal track these and record them as spoof you should immediately forward them to Paypal without opening it up. spoof@paypal.co.uk and spoof@paypal.com usually I get a reply from them that it is confirmed as spoof etc and a thanks for passing it to them to deal with. Gary
  19. Yep sidearms for Catholic Chaplains, for an express method of administering the last rites when time was short :cool2:
  20. Reminds me when I used to drive from Glasgow to Turkey in an old volvo F88 then up to an F7 with trailers full of corn flakes and whisky lol. great days indeed freezing conditions to burning hot all in a 10 day round trip.
  21. Re landing craft, I might have it on camera as the car is fitted with roadhawk camera, would need to trawl the footage on the memory card ADDED- found it on car camera at 1159 hrs seen on back of blue truck flatbed, not very clear as i was travelling at 70mph Gary
  22. See the same landing craft heading southbound on M1 when I was going north from Harrow to Glasgow. Only posted this when I got home but it was about 12ish Gary
  23. Yep quite agree with R Cubed #14 above. happened on here to me recently, in the classified for sale section where I agreed to buy and got reply with email address and asked for details to send money etc and to arrange pick up by courier THEN nothing not even a reply why it has changed etc. see 216 engine for sale in the classified for full trail. an agreement on here should be honoured as an electronic handshake - maybe we need a walk of shame section to name and shame defaulters lol. gary
  24. soxmis, short for Soviet Mission and did what was explained in previous message
  25. Theres a thread about USMC jeeps on the G503 site, mine came from Camp pendleton, San Diego. Base colour was more greener than OD and the lettering and numbers were yellow etc Gary
