  1. don't know if these help from Woolwich arsenal collection all taken at Marshalls
  2. Might be something to do with AS90.
  3. Clogged arteries Mr Ives? too much good food consumed from the sound of it. Stay well!
  4. Looks like an anti tank weapon with the short launching barrels, poss wire guided. MIlan??? Also seems to be the Royal Artillery Museums new reserve collection since there area number of exhibits I recognise from the Rotunda and other places.
  5. Aeroplane is a spitfire and the chassis to the left looks like a half track (m3) etc
  6. Sadly Firepowers own M40, priest and M44 no longer run, sexton may do with a lot of work. But even if they did landlords wouldn't allow it and the bookkeeper would have a heart attack at fuel bill.
  7. check the all important words of the Museums act in that they CANNOT SELL any item directly to anyone and that any item for disposal must firstly be offered to any other interested Museum,Once this criteria is follwed then and only then can it be allowed to be placed out to tender normally for scrap value. Happened at Firepower witrh forced closure of the Rotunda.
  8. Its a VW 1800cc industrial engine so shouldn't be a spares problem. Its all teh O rings and grommets and widgets for the oil drive that cost.
  9. RAF ran a captured example in the desert for some time, IWM have film which is also on show at Firepower.
  10. is it a camera gun that needs film fitted at the butt end? dial gives light values and distances
