  1. How fashions change in moustaches....
  2. The Square Dealers, as seen on Coronation Street. The route to happiness 1) So, set up a 'museum' 2) Write to other museums and foreign powers asking to either borrow, loan or donate vehicles. 3) Sell off the donations or go one step further and sell the loaned vehicles as well. 4) Invest money in income reversible trouser bonds. To late its already been done! a number of times!
  3. NO! what you want is SUGGS, anything else would just be Madness* *For older members, Madness was a popular beat combo of the 1970s and 1980s, with Suggs as lead singer.
  4. I would suggest that you raise £250,000 which would entitle you to have a chat with both Boris Johnson and Risi Sunak. Money doesn't speak it shouts
  5. There is one on Milweb from Marcus Glenn that needs a bit of tarting up for £7,500
  6. I agree, tap out some bar and attack with the wire wheel.
  7. The question is what colour should tecalemite grease nipples be on a wartime 25pdr? The colour of the vehicle? Red? Au natural?
  8. A selection of rough sawn packing crates for the connoisseur. All in plain wood with the fir tree mark for treated timber. SIZES- Five at 28.75" length x 20" wide x 12.75 deep One at 25.25" length x 18.5" wide x 12.75" deep £120 buyer collects from Chorley, Lancashire
  9. That's the easy bit done....now for the long slog of a proper restoration
  10. Hi Bob Are the take outs you've got seized or are they free? Have you tried to start them if they are not stuck ? Thanks WW
  11. WANTED-SEXTON MANUAL OPERATOR'S AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL, DECEMBER 1944 or Others Please let me know what you've got.
  12. Is it something like TC Lead? Is it off say an American quad 50 cal. or a Canadian quad polsten?
  13. I've just emailed the owner the details, Thank you for that
  14. Here is one for the small engine enthusiast(s) on the site. I've been sent two pictures of what once was an engine manufactured for military use. However, there are not data plates or anything so what is it? More pictures may follow As Toyah might have said "It's Mystery!"
  15. A mausoleum? No, seriously it is certainly is a big job
  16. I would have thought the vehicles assuming they exist, it will be FT17, Char Bis and those modified R-35 fitted with a Czech anti-tank gun. The Channels Islands were only equipped with captured tanks, though still well worth recovering
  17. I recall of hearing about an elderly gentleman taking his Abbot out to raise money one Remembrance Saturday in his local town. Whilst traversing the pavement the Abbot ripped out a number of kerb stones. Not wishing to encumber the local council into sending him a large bill for the rectification of pavement, he went the following day to relay the kerbstones. The following week the council pulled it all up as part of a redevelopment.
  18. Milweb is a bit like the Magic Roundabout, things just go round and round. For example the tracked vehicles that are on from France have had more returns than Tommy Docherty.
  19. Does anyone know what would be the modern BS or even RAL codes for these colours, unless of course these codes are still current?
