  1. Posh word for rust. 😁 Though the temptaions do you conserve it in running condition, doing the least possible or restore it and loose her life?
  2. I know Dover is getting to be a bit dodgy at the moment, but ..maybe a bit excessive? 😂 When the crap settles maybe we locals can bring some vehicles down for a play?
  3. I used to work there, I should have remembered. It's the age you know. Originally the site, right by a major rail junction, was going to be an evacuation hospital for Blitz victims.
  4. You realise I am now knee deep in drool? Please put warning before posting such pictures! 😭
  5. Our MOD has been known to dispose of kit , then years later come and say 'Can I have it back?' Getting worried now! I have a pice of lend lease kit marked Property of the United States.
  6. Bloody illegal immigrants parading through our Cities. 🤣🤣
  7. The Fort and Chertsey had very close links. It was not unusual for vehicles being on one set of books, but ending up at the other most of the time. The Fort did have until recently a well equipped fire service. Officially in the 1950' 60 and up to DERA Fort Halstead was The Royal Armorments Research and Development Establishment. The Royal Charter proudly displaye din the entrance to A4 building. There was also two offshoots of the Fort. One was Aquila at Bexley , the other Shoreham (Village) which was a magazine. Aquil ais now a housing estate, despite the fact that the original paperwork
  8. Iron can be replaced. As long a syou and family are OK.
  9. I agree, it is bloody horrible. I also tend to agree with you about the crew that go with it.
  10. Ive got some Climax pump parts looking for a home if you want them. Project that went haywire due to unforssen circumstances. Don't want to throw them out if they have ause. PM if intrested.
  11. Oh will the bad jokes about Wolly Thinking be about this week. 😆

    Get a proper thick plumbers spanner to fit it, and as Richard suggests freeze spray. Might also be worth trying soacking a rag in disiel or old engine oil, wrap around the nut, hold on with cling film and leave for a while.
  13. Welcome in. Regardless of origin, that is a vehicle worth the time and love spent on it.
  14. Out of my bracket at the moment I'm afraid.
  15. Perfect for Caption competion! 😁 The company also made Stretcher trailers and for various fire kit.
  16. There is on the AWM site a film on vehicle rebuilds in New Zealand with a lot of Dodges if you've not seen it.
  17. Pathe do have youtube channel. Intresting films to skip through.
  18. What sort of price are you asking?
  19. Yes, the T would be right for the apparent age. Austin 7 axles seemed to be highly favoured for small trailers in the 1930's. If that is also a small ring hitch , it to is correct for the date. Is it a front or back axle? I've seen both used to make trailers out of. As for it being Military, a lot of stuff was made by local workshops for Home Gaurd and Civil Defence use, so wouldn't look out of place. Classic car owners would bite your hand of for it.
  20. Well there isn't much else to do in Guernesey any way. It's thier one big day of the year. 😆 Apart from the Carrot festival.
  21. There is a 101 and powered triler at Gaydon, the only one I have ever seen.
