  1. I've been surprised that for 2 days now I have not received any emails on either of the PCs or my phone. Gmail still works though. Apparently this is a widespread problem & Orange will have addressed the problem in 3-5 days. I thought it was the usual nonsense of account retrieval as the Orange email address has not been used for so many months. Anyway I rang the "help"line, there was a warning that because of the cold weather there were less operators available, I can't really see why as today as on every former occasion I am put through to India. It took nearly half an hour at my expense to find out that this is a widespread problem & I'll just have to wait. Apologies if anyone has been trying to email me, please use PM or my gmail account. Is anyone else getting this email problem?

  5. December 18, 2007 11:20pm POLICE in Bulgaria arrested two Germans and a Bulgarian army officer for stealing a World War II tank and attempting to thieve another. Bulgaria's defence ministry said the first tank disappeared between October and December 13 and is still missing, while the second one only had a few parts stolen from it. Investigators suspect the armoured vehicle or its parts may have been smuggled to Germany. According to the Standard newspaper, the three suspects wanted to sell the Maybach tanks to German collectors. The vehicles had laid half buried since World War II near Bulgaria's southeastern border with Turkey.
  6. Most people will be unaware that the province of Newfoundland here in Canada was hard hit just over a week ago by Hurricane Igor. Whole communities have been isolated as torrents of water washed away the bridges or culverts that the roads to isolated communities depend on for food and fuel. Sadly, as this is not a huge story with international implications, most media outlets, even domestically, have been paying scant attention to it. The Canadian Forces (CF) response has been by way of Operation Lama. It involves men and women mainly from 4 Engineer Support Regiment from CFB Gagetown in New Brunswick and 423 Sqdn from Shearwater Nova Scotia. There are few images around but thankfully the Combat Camera unit of the CF has some pictures online and I have uploaded them here. Sorry they are out of order a bit. Before anyone screams "copywrite" be aware the CF Combat Camera website clearly states that images may be used for non commercial usage. 1 Typical culvert washout 2 Same 3 Military Police in front of Heavy Vehicle Logistical Wheeled (HLVW) PLS (Pallet Loading System) trucks loaded with MGB components arrive in Newfoundland 4 MGB assembly on site 5 Same 6 HLVW PLS truck pushes assembled MGB across river, in background Case front end loader an Mercedes G-Wagen and a flat rack of MGB components 7 Same washout before CF arrived 8 MLVW (Medium Logistical Vehicle Wheeled) towing trailer unloads from ferry to Newfoundland 9 What water will do 10 Case loader with 4 in 1 bucket preps site for MGB assembly and launch R

  8. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1311699/Tragedy-WWII-spy-Eileen-Nearne-escaped-Gestapo-died-alone.html#ixzz0zVUlntZt Sometimes it just isn't right........... The daring British Second World War spy who died alone in her flat earlier this month will receive an all-expenses-paid funeral following public outcry that she was to be cremated unmourned. Eileen Nearne had hardly any visitors to her Torquay home over the past two decades before she was found dead after suffering a heart attack at the age of 89. It is understood she has no surviving family and no-one was found to pay for her funeral. Hundreds of well-wishers have today volunteered to donate money so that Miss Nearne could be given a send-off befitting her wartime service. The members of the public, moved by her heroic tale, inundated the local council asking for details of where her funeral would be taking place and offering money to help pay for it. But these donations are no longer needed as both the funeral home and crematorium have waived their fees. Such was the national interest in Miss Nearne's fate that the funeral director has offered to not only pay for the service, but to move it to a larger church to accommodate the members of the public who wish to attend. The British Royal Legion has confirmed it will place a flag on her coffin. A spokesperson for Torbay Council said: 'Torbay Council has been contacted by various organisations including the Torbay District & Funeral Service and Westerleigh Group which have offered to fund the funeral arrangements of Eileen Nearne. 'We are currently liasing with the Royal British Legion regarding a protocol for the service so Ms Nearne can be laid to rest with the dignity and respect she deserves.' The original funeral was due to be held on September 21 but a new date will be now be found. Dozens of MailOnline readers joined an impromptu campaign by leaving messages expressing their admiration for Miss Nearne - and demanding she receive a 'military funeral with full honours'. Forgotten: The first floor flat on the Georgian crescent in Torquay where Eileen Nearne lived out her final days. She will receive an all-expenses-paid funeral following public outcry that she was to be cremated unmourned Lawrence Rainform, from Ormskirk in Lancashire, said: 'The bravery of those people working in occupied France helped to secure our freedom from Nazi domination. 'I think some lasting plaque should be erected in Torbay to her heroic memory. God bless her.' Jane Roberts, from Oxford, added: 'How sad, and how dreadful that a woman who served her country with such courage should have died alone. 'The very least that should be done is to ensure that she gets a decent burial, at the country's expense. We owe her.' Others called for as many people as possible to attend her funeral. Patrick O'Neill, from Hatfield, Hertfordshire, said: 'I sincerely hope that the funeral of this brave lady will be attended by as many people as possible. God rest her soul.' More... The SAS soldier who just wouldn't die: Medals under hammer of hero who survived gunshots, bayonet and PoW camp Discovered after 90 years: Diary complete with amazing paintings and drawings that bring to life the horror faced by Tommies in the WWI trenches Operation South Coast: Germany's plans for the invasion of Britain revealed in rare Nazi book not seen for 70 years Miss Nearne died on September 2. The lack of any next of kin means that Torbay Council will now pay for her funeral next week. A spokesman for the Royal British Legion said it would be represented there. John Pentreath, the Legion's manager for Devon, said: 'We will do her as proud as we can with our standards. 'She sounds like a remarkable lady and we are sorry she kept such a low profile and that we only discovered the details after her death.' Details of her glorious past emerged after out-of-date French currency, correspondence written in French, and a selection of medals were discovered by officials trying to trace relatives or friends among her private possessions at her flat in Torquay. As part of the UK’s Special Operations Executive Miss Nearne served in occupied France as a radio operator under the code name ‘Rose’. Eileen Nearne (left) had a role similar to Charlotte Gray, the eponymous heroine of the novel by Sebastian Faulks, played by Cate Blanchett in the 2001 film (right) In 1944, at the age of 23, she was sent to an aircraft base in France to work as a wireless operator with the cover name Mademoiselle du Tort. Miss Nearne, who spoke fluent French, was later caught using her radio set and taken into custody by the Gestapo who tortured her for information. Despite the abuse, they were unable to break her and she convinced them she was just a ‘little shop girl’ who knew nothing of undercover war operations. She was released but captured again by the Germans, this time managing to escape from a labour camp with two fellow prisoners. They were later arrested by the SS but were set free after Eileen again used her language skills to convince the captors they were innocent. 'SET EUROPE ABLAZE': AGENTS WHO TOOK NAZIS ON BEHIND ENEMY LINES Actress Virginia McKenna as an SOE agent in Carve Her Name With Pride The Special Operations Executive was formed after France fell to the Nazis in 1940. Churchill told the man tasked with founding the new organisation to 'set Europe ablaze'. The SOE was given an office off Baker Street in central London and recruitment began. Their mission was sabotage and helping resistance movements behind enemy lines. In April 1942, Churchill approved plans for women in the SOE to be sent into Europe. They were used as couriers and wireless operators. Pearl Witherington was the only woman to become a circuit leader when she took over the Wrestler Network in France after the arrest of Maurice Southgate in May 1944. She organised over 1,500 members of the Maquis and they played an important role fighting the German Army during the D-Day landings. She was awarded the MBE for her services during the war but became a recluse in later life and was found dead of natural causes on September 2. Her wartime adventures recall the plot of the 1958 film Carve Her Name With Pride, based on the true story of bilingual agent Violette Szabo, played by Virginia McKenna, who spied for the British government in Nazi-occupied France. They also echo the exploits of Charlotte Gray, the eponymous heroine of Sebastian Faulks' 1999 novel, which was subsequently turned into a film starring Cate Blanchett. Local residents say they had no idea they were living next door to a war hero. Neighbour Steven Cook said: ‘She was very reclusive. I was very surprised at the extent of her heroism. You would never have thought it, as she never spoke of it. ‘I just want everyone to know what she had done in her past.’ She was the youngest of three children and her older sister, Jacqueline, and brother, Francis, also became SOE operatives. In 1923 the family moved to France but when the country fell she made her way to England with her sister, through Portugal and Gibraltar. On her arrival she was offered service in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force working on barrage balloons. But she turned the job down and was recruited by the SOE from which she was commissioned in the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. Her early SOE experiences came while working at listening stations in Britain where messages to and from agents were sent and received. On March 2, 1944, she was flown by Lysander aircraft to a field near Les Lagnys in France to work as a wireless operator for the Wizard network as part of Operation Mitchel. Her cover story was that she was Mademoiselle du Tort - although she also used the aliases Jacqueline Duterte and Alice Wood. Four months later she was caught using her radio set but, even after torture, persuaded the Gestapo that she was just a little French girl who was not part of Allied forces. On August 15 the same year she was caught again and sent to Ravensbrück concentration camp in Germany and later transferred to a forced labour camp in Silesia, on the German border. Eileen befriended two French girls and on April 13, 1945, the three of them escaped from the forced labour gang they were working in. They hid in the forest before travelling through Markkleeberg where they were arrested by the SS. But again Eileen ingenuity and linguistic skill proved to be life-saving because they were released after she convinced their captors of their innocence. The three women were then hidden by a priest in Leipzig until the arrival of United States troops. Miss Nearne was sent to Ravensbrück concentration camp (pictured) in August 1944. She was later transferred to a forced labour camp After the war Eileen lived in London with her sister and it is thought she never married and moved to Torquay two decades ago. She was found dead after neighbours became concerned for her welfare. Among items found in her home were discontinued French currency, an array of correspondence written in French and a selection of medals. The South Devon coroner said Eileen died of natural causes so there will be no inquest. A funeral service will be held at Drakes Chapel in Hele Road, Torquay, on September 21 at 11am. Torbay Council said it is looking into the possibilities of having her medals buried with her. A spokeswoman said documents relating to the war will now be handed to MI5. She added that the funeral will be arranged by the authority who will claim the money back from her estate.

  9. I just read this morning that Fred Crismon had died last year from a heart attack. Here is his obituary: http://memorialwebsites.legacy.com/fwcrismon/Subpage.aspx?mod=2 I am quite suprised that more news was not made of his passing as he was an incredibly well known figure in military truck history. We corresponded with him on several occasions and always found him to be incredibly helpful and knowledgable. In my last letter from him he expressed that he was very interested in our WW1 truck restorations and especially our Peerless's. A very sad loss.
  10. At a auction at Hovemoen, Lillehammer there's several ww2 on the list. Items such as GMC, Jeep and a couple of Dodge engines. Various item for weasel also. Axle for Dodge. You gotta wonder from what closet the army dragged these items, and are there any more? :-) Other items are somewhat newer and looks like civil defense equipment like fire hoses and pumps. Even a few Polaris Bigboss, but these are sold only to dealers that will sell them outside Norway. http://www.auksjon.no/forsvaretauksjonsliste.aspx Date for auctioun is sept 18th. 2010 Marty

I would have come to Lancashire and implemented the punishment myself. I sometimes lose confidence in the judicial process....

  17. Thought this might be of interest to the forum War hero: Jack Harrison, the last RAF pilot involved in the Great Escape, has died at the age of 97 In the end, it was only time from which he could not escape. Jack Harrison, one of the last of those involved in the 'Great Escape', has passed away, peacefully and quietly, at the age of 97. It has been 66 years since the dark night when he waited with bated breath, preparing to crawl through ‘Harry’ and under the wire of Stalag Luft III. Many years after the war the former RAF pilot, and his brave and resourceful comrades, would be immortalised by the iconic 1963 film - starring Richard Attenborough and Steve McQueen - which remains the staple fare of every Christmas Day celebration. But, by then, the most audacious - and tragic - prisoner-of-war break out of the Second World War was only a memory to the Scots veteran, who had long since returned to his ‘real life’ as a husband, father and classics teacher. Mr Harrison would go on to live a long and fruitful life, spending the last two-and-a-half years of it in the veterans' hospital at Erskine, in Bishopton, Renfrewshire. Yesterday a spokesman for the charity that runs the hospital said: ‘It is with the greatest of sadness that we announce the passing of Great Escape veteran Jack Harrison. ‘Mr Harrison, thought to be the last survivor of the escape, passed away with his son, Chris, and daughter, Jane, by his side.’ The success of the film The Great Escape may have elevated the humble Latin teacher to the status of a war hero. But to his family, he will forever be ‘dad’. In a joint statement yesterday, his two children paid tribute to him. They said: ‘To others, he was considered a war hero, but to us he was much more than that. ‘He was a family man first and foremost. He was also a church elder, a Rotarian, scholar, traveller and athlete. He took up marathon running in his 70s to raise money for charity. Called up: Harrison was a Classics teacher when called up to join the RAF. He was shot down during his first mission and ended up in Stalag Luft III ‘He was also a caring father and grandfather and he will be missed by the entire family. ‘We are indebted to Erskine for the care and attention that he and we have received over the past two and a half years.’ Throughout his long life, Mr Harrison played down his important role in the daring escape bid from Stammlager der Luftwaffe III - meaning a camp for airmen - which was established at Sagan, in what is now Poland. He was being unduly modest. Mr Harrison played a key role in the plot. He acted as a ‘runner’ for Squadron Leader Roger Bushell, who was played in the film by Richard Attenborough. Bushell was the mastermind behind the digging of the three escape tunnels, which were started in April 1943 and codenamed Tom, Dick and Harry. His plan was to dig down to a depth of 30ft and then tunnel on three fronts towards the perimeter of the camp and into the woods beyond. Stalag Luft III, which lay 100 miles south-east of Berlin, was a massive facility. At its height, 10,000 RAF officers and non-commissioned aircrew were held there. Planning the Great Escape required daring and ingenuity. The prisoners would disguise themselves as civilians and split into three groups. One group would trek out of the region, while others would use the railway network to effect an escape. In an interview with the Scottish Daily Mail in 2008, Mr Harrison said: ‘The Germans knew about tunnels at other camps, so we had to be very careful - or you could be shot.’ Tragically, that would be the fate of many of his comrades. The Gestapo captured and executed 50 of them within days of the escape. Passing the time: Prisoners at Stalag Luft III play football in the northern compound of the camp. At its height, 10,000 RAF officers and non-commissioned aircrew were held there However, no threat of capture or death could have persuaded the airmen not to do their duty and attempt to make it back home to rejoin their units. Their exhaustive and intricate plan included creating fake documents and tailoring clothes. By then, they had begun by digging Tom, Dick and Harry. Tom and Dick had to be abandoned, but Harry remained. The dirt from the tunnel was carried secretly into the camp where it was disguised as vegetable and tomato patches. It was hoped that on the night of the escape – 24 March, 1944 - around 200 prisoners would go through Harry to the outside. Each of the escapees was given a number that indicated his place in the ‘queue’. Immortalised: Richard Attenborough and Steve McQueen in the 1963 film The Great Escape. Attenborough's character was modelled on escape mastermind Roger Bushell, for whom Harrison was a runner Civilians: The escapees changed their uniforms to look like civilian clothes, and forgers created false documents and permits to fool pursuing Germans Mr Harrison was Prisoner Number 96 and waited in Hut 104 to take his turn. He was dressed as a civilian engineer, with fake papers to prove it, when he heard gunfire from outside. Mr Harrison said: ‘The 77th prisoner was escaping when I heard the shots. ‘I was 96th in line and I was ready to go into the tunnel. I had my kit, false ID, railway passes and German money. ‘But unfortunately, “Harry” had fallen 30ft short of the wire surrounding the camp.’ Only 76 men had emerged before a guard, who had gone to the woods to relieve himself, raised the alarm. ‘We heard a rifle shot and it was all over,’ said Mr Harrison, who added: ‘I quickly burned the forged documentation in the stove and changed out of the civilian clothing. Of the 76 who made it out of the tunnel, only three – two Norwegians and a Dutchman - eventually made it home. The others were recaptured. In an attempt to put off other prisoners seeking to escape, Hitler, Goering and Himmler ordered that those who were recaptured should be executed. Iconic scene: Although daring motorcycle exploits were not part of the original escape, McQueen's fence jump is one of the most memorable scenes in the film Digging duties: Charles Bronsan as the 'Tunnel King'. Three tunnels were started simultaneously and eventually 76 men used 'Harry' to escape Mr Harrison said: ‘I knew quite a few of the men who were shot. For a while, we thought we would be next. ‘It was an anxious time. I was a long way from home and a very long way from my real life.’ The Glasgow-born veteran had been working as a Latin and classics’ teacher at Dornoch Academy, in Sutherland, when he was called up to serve in the Royal Air Force as a pilot. On his first mission, in November 1942, to bomb German supply ships at the Dutch port of Den Helder, his Lockheed Ventura was shot down. He was captured and arrived later that month at Stalag Luft III. Mr Harrison, who was also a grandfather, recalled how he was released. ‘I was liberated as the Russians advanced,' he said. ‘We were marched for two days and nights and eventually we were loaded on to rail trucks and taken across Germany.' Mr Harrison eventually got home. He recalled: ‘I had married my school sweetheart, Jean, in 1940 and she was living with her parents. ‘After the war, I worked as a classics’ teacher at the Glasgow Academy and we lived in the city until the 1950s.' The family moved to Rothesay, on the Isle of Bute, in 1958 when Mr Harrison took up a post as Director of Education for the area. Mr Harrison is survived by his son and daughter and two grandchildren, Mark and Stuart. Major Jim Panton, the Chief Executive of Erskine Hospital, said yesterday: ‘It was a privilege and an honour for Erskine to care for Jack over the past two years. ‘Although a very modest and private man, he will be greatly missed by all of the staff and veterans in our home. ‘Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.’

  19. First of all, JACK - as you are a Dorset lad, please feel free to Edit/Correct/Add to this thread. I have heard about some Road Works in Weymouth that may affect anybody going to the Weymouth Veterans Parade this weekend. It seems to centre on the Round-About outside ASDA. I contacted Poppy Butcher, and she had the following to say about the problem :- There are as you have heard roadworks going on in Weymouth. Dorchester Road is always busy but shouldn't cause any real problems. The only road closure is going down Boot Hill, (that is the the hill by ASDA going to Portland) but you can travel up. Traffic from Portland and Wyke into town is being diverted through Lanehouse, but diversion directions are very clear but hold-ups are inevitable. This has only come into force Monday June 7th so I'm not sure how it will work out.
  20. Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame, is currently producing "Dambusters" a re-make of the original film and is to be historically accurate. There is more info under The Dambusters on Wikipedia. The dambuster wiki information also makes mention that Star Wars used the bombing scenes style from the film in the original Star wars film when they attack the Death Star. So for those who cant wait for the new film, here is something to make you laugh, the bits involving R2D2 are great, a very clever bit of editing!
  21. New Colours for the Tecannos at Linton for the display year for teh 70th Anv .
  22. I ordered the paint I'm after this morning and then drove up to LW Vass to buy some new tyres for my Defender. The place has changed massively since I was there last time, I hardly recognised it. Most of the sheds down the right hand side as you go down their yard are now individual business units. On the left is now a caravan sales place with loads of caravans where there were once Green Machines. The only bits left were the tyre bay and some yard round the back. I found it strangely sad, seeing all the old sheds taken over by small businesses and the yard that used to be full with dozens of ex mil veh now a tyre dump. Sad. Anyway. They had some Michelin XCL's but they were the studded tyres. I bought these last time (Ten years ago) and the XCL's I have on my Landy have now finally cracked to the point of being illegal. These are a brilliant tyre though. The new ones I bought are the newer Michelin XZL (I think). They are part worns, but you can still see the rubber joints accross the tyre surface, so they haven't done much. Photo's to follow, I need to get them fitted, which should be Wednesday.:cool2:
  23. Yesterday morning I saw a big cloud of smoke coming from Amsterdam. In the evening I learnt from the news that a number of sheds were lost. This morning I learnt that one of the sheds was owned by people of the Dutch Military vehicle club "Keep them Rolling" and that several MV's and tons of spares were lost in the fire. I have heard different stories. some say Jeeps and Dodges, others say Jeeps, a Kubelwagen, Schwimmwagens and an Opel Blitz. Alex
