  1. I recall a stubborn tyre on a Allis Bucket at RAF Bruggen back in 1981. Eventually dropped a Dozer blade on the tyre, that shifted it.
  2. Take it out on the vehicle into the woods and live in it for a couple of weeks. The wetter and muddier the better.
  3. My 1978 CL Series 3 has a gloss red tow hook. From before I acquired it. If I get to repaint the vehicle it will probably remain red as is.unless it can be prooved what it should be.
  4. Screen grab from Youtube of a beer delivery on Oswestry station. Anyone ID the Jeep? Not my video
  5. To make them identifiable as +ve or -ve .and less likely to be mixed up. That is what I was told when I did a Plant course at Chatham back in 1978
  6. Is this the sort of spanner you mean? Approx 3 inch across.
  7. A couple of news clips on the BBC local news pages about the latest Indiana Jones filming underway or completed in the North East. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-57413454 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-57402055
  8. I have a 1978 LR series 3 CL SWB. According to the records it should be matt finish. However just wondering if there was a precedent for repainting in Brunswick Green? I have a suspicion that it may have been painted in it previously due to finding some traces of DBG. The records indicate a history with Royal Signals Headquarter squadrons in Sheffield and Glasgow but no sign of any Radio gear fitted, which leads me to speculate that it may have been an "Office Runabout" rather than operational.
  9. In the text it says 16 were buried. Wonder if there are plans to dig up more?
  10. Do you have a website? And Whereabouts are you? I may have missed it if you have said on some earlier post.
  11. Back in 78 we were building a footbridge over the A3 in Guilford for the county show. 2 of the 3 cranes we had were parked up on a path with a ditch alongside. Overnight it rained and washed out the ditch causing the 2 cranes to roll over.
  12. I have seen still photos of this landing but never a film version. Scroll forward about 1.00 https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060019628 WD 29, 30, 32 and 33 shipped in July 45 for beach landing.
  13. Thanks for that, will peruse and see if anything useful.
