  4. As all threads in Clive's Corner are closed & members can't reply or start new threads here so that the info doesn't get lost in hundreds of posts/threads, I thought I would post an Open thread where members may ask questions or make comments on his papers. I know members have done so on the open forum in the past but it only makes sense to keep all the comments on the same board.
  5. I have been buying John & Mary Worthing jeep canvas for the last 20 years and my dad before me. I was told to try Allied forces canvas. So I gave them a call as they are more expensive than Worthing . Q, why is your canvas products more expensive than john & Mary Worthing's A, our canvas is more heavier, better made. better quality and goes through quality control before sent out to make sure the customer is happy. Q, ok, can you tell me about the colour. is it green or olive? A, it is olive Q, ok . how long will it take for me to get my order? A, If you want all the can
  6. On Thursday, in the backwaters of the river Warta Valentine a tank was recovered from the Second World War. This is the first tank of it’s kind in Poland and the only one in the world who took part in combat actions! Valentine managed the mining action Jacek Kopczynski of Lodz – a collector of vintage and military vehicles, one of the fathers of Veteran Vehicles Bazaar in. Jacek Kopczynski said on Wednesday that if you manage to get the Valentine it will be a sensation in the world. It’s the first tank of this type found in Poland.` http://www.warhistoryonline.com/war-articles/valentine-tan

  8. My brothers project... read it here. You can ask for more info at Beltring. War monument Allied Fallen Soldiers. After thorough investigation in various archives and war diaries i have found 29 names of Allied soldiers who died in action in WW2 in the communicipality of Kerkdriel,The Netherlands. The soldiers are from Great Britain,Canada,Australia and the USA. There is NO monument what so ever to commemorate these brave men,so i thought it was time to give honour to these soldiers by starting a foundation to raise money for a monument. These 29 names will be put on a gran

  10. Hi all. Had this forwarded to me. Unwitting motorists face £1,000 fines as thousands of photo card driving licences expire. Thousands of motorists are at risk of being fined up to £1,000 because they are unwittingly driving without a valid licence. They risk prosecution after failing to spot the extremely small print on their photo card licence which says it automatically expires after 10 years and has to be renewed - even though drivers are licensed to drive until the age of 70. The fiasco has come to light a decade after the first batch of photo licences was issued in July 1
  11. i dont want to worry anybody, but our glorious leader has admitted on facebook that he owns a box set of the Neibours TV series!!!!! :shocking::shake: Yours, Worried of Stoke!!
  12. Is this real & if so how will it effect us, especially if it seems retrospective? http://www.the-ace.org.uk/armageddon/
  13. Not sure what anyone else thinks but I met a few Landrover owners at W&P that openly boasted that their LR had never been a Military Vehicle but still declare them to Insurance companys as ex-MV's just becasuse they have chosen to replicate one..(some just have a paint job & bits n bobs bolted on) this sort of behaviour surley brings the movement into disrepute.. they surley must have no valid insurance in place by not disclosing a material fact?? The idiots that carry on doing this will in the end push up the cheaper rates we receive for everyone.. there are at least two LR ow
  14. Folks. I am just working on a new project and urgently need some help!

  15. Folks - just had a message from the BBC's One Show and they are trying to track down Tony Graves, he excavated the Lancaster bomber. Would anyone have a contact for him - if so can you PM me please! Thanks everyone, Jack.
  16. Don't know if anyone will find this useful or not, but I had scanned in the Morris Commercial (and Morris Light Van) pages of my 1948 edition of Motor Specifications and Prices for a friend, and thought I'd share it here. Unfortunately it doesn't cover the military-specific models from what I can see. I've also attached an Adderley Park production sheet. Most of the war years are lumped into a single production total, sadly, but fiscal 1944/45 is broken down by model, as are the postwar years.

  18. Folks I just would like to let you all know why the jokes thread was removed. It was never to upset anyone. However after discussing it with the complete team (there are now EIGHT of us) it was decided to save us from a lot of hassle we would remove it. I asked Lee to do so on my behalf. I asked for the thread to be pulled because: racial or gender specific/sexist references - to national or specific racial/gender groupings or even one time comedy stereotypes acceptable in the past can be the subject of a complaint, even by a third party not of that nationality/gender under current equa
  19. I was watching 'Double Cross - The True Story of the D-Day Spies' on BBC2 yesterday, and noticed a German marked DC3 Dakota aircraft at 36:39 if you watch it on BBC iplayer. I've not seen a German marked dakota before, anyone know any details about it?

To those that have recently Quoted the posts in the W&P threads which are photo heavy with Ferret photos, please go back a trim your post & remove the photos. Thank you.
