  4. Its with great sadness to say that i had a call from my ex wife Elaine to say her father George had passed away in the night .i am sure there has to be many members on this forum who remember George from the dorset area mvcg/mvt going right back to the early days i first met george on the first jersey tour when i was eight i am 45 now!! . Our thoughts go to his wife Anne and daughters Erica an Elaine and son stuart .

  7. gmc breakdown vehicles known as "set no 7"were based on long and short chassis and fitted with a pulley block with a hoisting capacity of 500kg on a monorail. they were tobe used for towing broken down or disabled vehicles. they could also be used for transporting equipment or supplies where the pulley block could be used for loading purposes.

  9. Thanks Jack for a great weekend, unbeknownst to me (Amanda in the Amanda Jane Jeep) i was in the process of passing a kidney stone, which is why David and I had to depart early sunday morning. The experience of taking part in the convoy however helped to dull the pain.Im pleased to say the stone finally passed out on my arrival home. Roll on 2012 and we can do it all again minus the stone!!!

Paddling along the coast at different places one been at puys we came across two bunkers which appear to have fallen due to the coastal erosion ,did read that it is 1 mtr a year in these parts !
