  1. I think there is a different reason for the S on the vehicle (unknown to me). The usual position for the Command group letter was on the driver's side of the cab.
  2. Just a question about the I.D ing of ROF factories. I took a look at the online list of ROF facilities and I have to assume it is not complete. I came across an ROF on a BfA photo that isn't on the list - Whitchurch, and I presume this is just one. I am not suggesting that the following had ROF status but who knows? (that is a genuine question) The only place name I have come across (so far) which has R and D in it which has war related work taking place there is Radcliffe, Greater Manchester. Which had a number of manufacturers of munitions, aircraft and tank components. I would think though that it would more likely be RC, or just R?
  3. Personally I don't see a problem with it but I realise 'where they are coming from' regarding bike thefts and everything that goes with it. The DVLA website states a receipt for the replacement engine written evidence from the manufacturer an inspection report provided for insurance purposes written confirmation on headed paper from a garage (if the change took place before you bought the vehicle)' So in effect you need the old receipt from ten years ago from when you bought the bike. I am guessing you might not have it? Perhaps you might be able to 'find' an old one? Even the handwritten one from the mate you bought it from might be enough, especially if it gives the frame number and engine number?
  4. Came across this on a F/B page, no idea as to its provenance but thought it might interest some of you guys, if only in comparison to the paint job done by Tomo!
  5. In times gone by he had some very good stuff at the right price. Sorry I cant help with any pics.
  6. The vehicle number would just be one of a series of RAF numbers such as on this (modern) photo.
  7. The number refers to the Group i.e. M/41 refers to Maintenance Group 41, Aircraft Group. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Maintenance_Command
  8. B = bomber command, F = fighter command, M= maintenance command.
  9. Thanks for that fellas, I can see it now 🙂
  10. I can't seem to get my head/eyes around this photo of a Sherman. What is that arrangement to the right of the barrel?
  11. The bike looks like a Triumph TRW so is unlikely to be in service abroad before 1950.
  12. No Signals


    Hi Jiri You might, only might, get a quicker response if you post your query on the Motorcycle section. Best of luck.
  13. Am I correct in thinking that all A frames now need to have a braking facility fitted?
  14. A few more photos I have come across showing collections of MV's. In this case they are at the ROF Whitchurch, Cardiff. A very nice collection of Daimler(?) armoured cars, Dingo's and Universal Carriers all lined up awaiting disposal. I will let your hearts weep along with mine 🙂
  15. I don't think your analogy was lost on anyone, but I do think you would serve your purpose better on this forum by making your point, openly, in straight terms. As I said previously we will all be dead before the time you get to actually making some definitive, factual, traceable statements regarding your knowledge of these tanks. It could be that you do know some actual 'good stuff' but playing games with the guys on here is disrespectful to those whose potential backing it seems you are chasing. And if, as you say, you are not young in years you could easily take this complete knowledge to the grave with you today/ tomorrow/ sooner than you think. I will wait.
  16. Patience? patience ? we are all going to die before we hear the end of this saga 🙂 But I am waiting.
  17. The answer seems to be they are illegal going by this - https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/955014/vehicle-registration-numbers-and-number-plates-inf104.pdf
  18. Even with your door raised, is there room for it with the viewing dome in position?
  19. I was told, some years ago by someone who I believed to be better informed than me, that the railways (British Rail) also had the crows foot. Government marking?
  20. Don't know if any of them on here fulfil your criteria. https://www.flickr.com/photos/britishjeep/albums/72157667125885203
