  1. Read the document, makes sense. Replied to consultation. Whether the arse-covering politically correct idiots in the corridors of power decide to use common sense on this, or not, is a completely different matter. :rolleyes:
  2. Good to know, used it earlier to book my place :-) See you all there
  3. I like it. I reckon they got it spot on, to be honest. That they're marketing chocolate with period-style wrapping is nothing new, really - remember the "Keep calm" style bars a couple of years back? However, the proceeds from the sales going to the RBL is a GOOD twist to this, one I whole-heartedly approve of.
  4. I'll go with Robin's reply, above. As the owner of a Series 3 109, which also happens to be my daily drive, I find it a dead easy wagon to drive around in. Granted, I've had hells own delight in fixing a couple of dashboard switch issues (heater blower & wash/wiper) in the last week (still not completely fixed, lack of time, suitable weather, and those thrice-be-damned lock-rings (smooth sided nuts)), but they're pretty-much there now, which emphasises the point that even a mechanical clutz like me can have a bit of fun (ahem. That's one word for those damned lock rings!:banghead:) both dr
  5. I cold bloody cry. I really could. I just moved home, and was trying to find the box with the older radio kit (incl the 290) that I'd packed - and the damn things gone walkies Not the only thing either; a box of clothes, a box of books (thankfully nothing irreplacable), and bizzarly, spare kitchen stuff. Had a word with the removals people, they can't find it in their 'misplaced boxes' store either. Just bloody glad my other (more frequently used) radio kit was shifted my yours truly the day before the move! Just peeved about the 290, not to mention all the patch leads, gash coax, et
  6. heh, nice I've got one in my back window that says "Land Rover: 0 - 60 in three weeks" :nut:
  7. Hiya Clive That's a heck of a lot of operating and recognition - nicely done Something of a black box opeator here, and I still have my old FT-290R mk1, although I'm not at all sure it works anymore - haven't used it in close to a decade; I have to replace the mike cable at some point too, but as I've got an FT-817ND, that task's taken something of a back seat - especially with the acquisition of a PRC-320 recently! 73 Roger G1LIW

    Jeep Stolen

    Posted about it on Twitter, just in case. Direct link: Hope this helps, and hope you get the Jeep back to it's rightful owners toot sweet.
  9. Berets are something of a nitroglycerine-like topic for many in the British Army: Paras would be more than likely to remove your head from your shoulders, were you to suggest changing the colour of their beret, for example; for many, the beret colour is a regimental identifier. Here is a list of beret colours, and the regiments that they link to: Khaki Foot Guards, Honourable Artillery Company, Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, Royal Anglian Regiment, Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, Royal Welsh, Yorkshire Regiment, Royal Gibraltar Regiment, 4/73 (Sphinx) Special Observation Post Batter
  10. I think that's probably the best course of action; glad we were all able to help
  11. Hi. Dave's given a brief reply above, but I thought a more in-depth reply might be of use, so apologies if this bores the wossit out of anyone... Oh, and while I'm at it, you looked at the previous version of the CWP website; the current site can be found at the link (click on the banner) in my sig strip Anyhow, while we use slightly more modern wagons (Land Rovers), the law of the land covers everything, not just modern kit, so applies to WW2-like Willis Jeeps as well; the guidance in our rules book is via both Primary and secondary legislation; please bear with me, as this gets a le
  12. OK, new keyboard please. For some odd reason, mine appears to be covered in coffee at this time You NEVER hand me a straight line like that, the tasteless possibilities for one-line ripostes are almost endless :evil::rotfl::nut: Oh, and lemme know if your D1/C1 entitlement is still there, when you get it back, please
  13. Tony - Outstanding news - thanks for the heads-up:-D
  14. OK, well, until you've heard back from them, there's little point in my adding to the queue, so if, when they tell you, can you let us know how they intend to make this happen (or not), please? I dare say a number of us on here will be waiting the news with suspiciously beer-less breath
  15. REALLY?! First I've heard of that, and I asked about this ten years back when I took my Cat D test for the buses - they said at the time it couldn't happen! So, how does the conversion from an Auto to a manual 'D' ticket work, cause I'd like that too (Full manual car ticket here too, since 1981 even:nut:)!
