  6. It seems to me that he has supplied NO documentary evidence whatsoever back up his case. Why would that be ? Obviously our conclusions are negative.

  8. you would think that he would show us a pic or two of the plates he bought at auction, that would be of general historical interest anyway and not give up the location of the hoard.

  9. Hello Bootandsocks....Suprise Suprise! I know you from another forum world! Good to see you on here and in the best forum thread ever! Yes, your long swan was Ex Crescent Moon to the Toummo water hole in the Tibesti Mountains. My father was on the exercise too, the ASM REME sharing the spares RL binner driving with the TQMS Tosh Hamm. Mr Bunce was the accompanying boffin. Let's play a game..... you were in either 4 or 5 Troop, your commander was either 2Lt. Scrutton 4 Tp or Lt. Pugh 5Tp. You want more? Ok, your Saladin was named either CHINDWIN or CHAMPION. Both vehicles spent a long time adrift with mechanical poorliness but I really think it was CHINDWIN 07BB68 that was yours as I know it was at Uig El Chebir VOD (Vehicle off Desert...a term I've just invented for VOR as there were no roads beyond Sebha) from 28th Apr until 8th May 1960. More? No, you tell us more please. I have the full report of Crescent Moon. Oh, I was there too, not at Toummo obviously but there playing in the sand, sea and Roman ruins of Homs and Leptis Magna. Other grown ups who were there too correspond and many have sent their photo collections of 2RTR in Libya to me. Feel free to do the same and if you like, to p.m me...... 😊

  10. Tim has just presented me with this 'for Christmas and Birthday' and significantly out of phase with both! It matters not. Quite amazingly, he has found another Radmill gas generator, complete and WD marked! It is just right for the Peerless and will need only a little mechanical attention from me before returning for a paint job. I understand that this was a phone call out of the blue and pure luck. Nevertheless, I am very pleased indeed! Steve 😁

  11. Things have been slow over the last few months, I’ve been working 12 to 14 hour shifts so by the time I get to the weekend I’m goosed. But, I’ve now got a couple of new original 8.25 x 20” Goodyear tyres which are in really nice condition with no cracking etc. I’ve been blasting and painting some parts such as the front light, they took a weekend to take apart. A real pig! I then spent a whole weekend taking a frozen crab apart. It was torture and destroyed numerous drill bits, drifts, 2 x 4lb mallets and this 44 year old bloke. But it gave up in the end.

  12. Perhaps Andy is being coy? Much as the speculation is fun, I suggest anyone with the resources and motivation to help has a private message exchange to see if they can get beyond foxes and chickens.

  13. 007 plots have more credibility, I feel! Still, he's getting attention, so I dare say he's happy in spite of being on a government hit-list...

  14. Does anyone remember the long swan cyclops did across the desert in libya, with us was a boffin from fvrde in chertsey. I broke down half way down there and was stuck there for at least seven days with a hydraulic leak, we were finaly recovered and towed home. I forgot to say that I was driving a Saladin at that time. Those were the days.
