About Me










  1. Anybody out there interested in an old ex military meadows diesel engined gen set. It must be around 70 yrs old, I was offered one yesterday, but it's not really of interest to me. It has been stored indoors for years and used to be used for occasionally powering an industrial unit near me. The unit is now closed & the gen set is now unfortunately being stored outdoors, so I guess will deteriorate fairly rapidly. I don't think the owners want much for it. They just want rid. if there is anyone interested let me know & I will put you in touch with them
  2. I got my Tracklink today, a magazine of The Friends of The Tank Museum and was sad to see the death being announced of Catty Taylor on 11 May. His real name was Graham late of 3RTR and I first met him in 1984. He was somewhat outspoken as some of you will know but I never had any trouble with him at all, indeed he was always friendly and helpful to me. Another 'character' gone.........
  3. Just bought a NOS BC1000 complete with accessories. The bad news it has France text. Note the paper wrapping remains on the lit
  4. Saw this on War history Online, but it's all over the net. 2 guys claim to have found a Nazi train in a tunnel, Even if there isn't a single gold coin, a "time capsule" train from 1945 would be worth a fortune. Clothing, documents, personal weapons, the rail cars themselves, hell even a singe Panzer, would be worth millions. https://www.rt.com/news/312924-poland-nazi-gold-train/
  5. Great news ! I've managed to save, all the ww2 British/Canadian vehicles from a Leeds scrap yard. The scrap yard, had only days to clear the site before, the new owners Audi cleared it. The hoard comprised of, three Bedford QLs. Bedford Trooper, QLR & a rare QL Tipper, Fordson Wot 6 & a Canadian Ford F15A 2 x trailers 1944 totally complete lubrication trailer & a complete Coventry climax fire pump. Plus a huge amount of nos spare parts, inc new engines for Bedford MW, QL doors, wings, mudflaps, canvases, seats, windscreens, engine spares, jerry cans & ammo boxes inc some wooden lee Enfield rifle boxes etc etc. All the vehicles, are very complete, with all data plates, brackets, clocks, original bodies etc present. The QLR is very complete, with all its fixtures & fittings inc the roof mounted aerial mounts. Sadly the body has collapsed, under its own weight. Hopefully with the many spares, some of the above vehicles, could be restored. Regards stu

  7. Its good to see that the T34 sitting mear the old kent road is getting a face lift :laugh: :dancinggirls:
  8. Interesting http://www.news.com.au/technology/innovation/radioactive-find-reveals-the-race-to-stop-hitler-developing-nuclear-weapons-may-have-been-closer-than-we-thought/news-story/75b016d006151db3eb7acfc8cc37550d I recall that huge submarine sunk off Africa was supposedly carrying nuclear material also
  9. In the news today is an item concerning the memorial to the late inventor of the AK-47. Apparently a monumental blunder (pardon the pun) has been carried out by the sculptor as a Nazi StG44 Sturmgewehr was included in memorial. However IMHO the AK-47 was a rip off of the StG44 so that weapon had every right to be on the memorial and should not have been removed! http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/nazi-gun-removed-from-statue-of-ak-47-founder-mikhail-kalashnikov-in-moscow/ar-AAsmMmb StG44 & AK-47 compared; http://i54.tinypic.com/30xabe1.jpg
  10. There is an auction in France later this month with a WW1 Renault artillery tractor in it. Seem like a collection is up for disposal. See link here: https://www.alcopa-auction.fr/voiture-occasion/renault/tracteur-d-artillerie-lourde-type-plaque-eg-60695
  11. not clear if this will affect historic artifacts like helmets, swords, daggers, flags etc. but if it does then we could be seeing a surge of that stuff on the market coming from Itlay as collectors are forced to get rid of their items https://www.rt.com/news/403233-italy-law-fascism-souvenirs/

  13. I missed this yesterday when looking at the First Ministers statement, question is what about historic vehicles? The policy is different from Central Government http://www.msn.com/en-gb/cars/news/scotland-to-ban-petrol-and-diesel-car-sales-by-2032/ar-AArlFT2?li=AA8sb7&ocid=ientp

  15. True barn find, one owner for 35 years, he bought it from the Portuguese military and then parked it, it is very complete and in a good nick, he started taking it apart a few years ago for a refresh. Ended up getting rid of the Humber Scout Car, since I have always fancied the Humber heavy.....plus it has a turret and goes boom... .
  16. Hi Don't know what the problem was with the other thread , but somebody "spat the dummy" for whatever reason. I have a lathe with a interesting history . Built mid 1940 it was ordered by a machinery dealer in Paris France . The lathe was ready to ship but the Germans would have grabbed it , it was diverted to Australia where it was used by GMH the Aust. arm of GM USA The lathe is metric which is rare as it's a US built Hendey. It is in good shape .
  17. Alert to importers of vehicles into Australia...https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2017/0...ia/?refer=news Is an article about vehicles being impounded, sent to a lab, and disassembled in an Asbestos search. Clutches, brake shoes and even Gaskets are suspect. Newc in Oregon

  19. We had the portuguese army in Coimbra. I think some of the vehicles were bought from Austria They had old British 25Pdr guns for the salute. any info on them. Keith

  22. A plane that played a vital role on D-Day in World War Two is to be restored and returned to the Berkshire airfield where it took off 73 years ago. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-berkshire-40175202/d-day-plane-to-return-to-former-airbase-in-berkshire
  23. Hello all, I recently aquired an M5 HT and am looking for a various amount of parts and diagrams etc to restore it. All the rear armour was removed and a flat back installed, thats now all been removed back to the bare chassis :-D Most of the instruments are missing although I've sourced a couple. It has a Ford diesel engine installed which will have to remain until an original IHC can be found (yes I know not an easy task!). I'd be grateful of any contacts, leads etc to parts. This is a long term project but I'm loving every minute working on the old beast! :cool2:
  24. DELETED ! ..through lack of interest and my post ridiculed by very childish, irellevant replies!!!!!!!!
