[She walks the BLEEP tower ... with her head tucked underneath her arm[/b][/i]". (Spikr Milligan)

Wasn't that Stanley Holloway? Pretty sure I've got the record somewhere. Its also got such gems as "The Lion and Albert" and "Old Sam (Sam, Pick Oop Tha Musket)".

I created a story board ready to take the 6 pot to Gaydon on Saturday.

I have spent the day putting a (single) gaiter on the off side. Point 1, double lacing can be done without fitting it, put it on the axle and it's a whole different ball game. I finally got it laced up and tight. It looks a bit wrong but it seems to hold the leather together. When I started to fit it to the housing I remembered that people had said to put the lacing at the 10'o clock position. Point 2, this is impossible. I had the Britpart gaiters and the mounting holes are punched so as to put the lacing at the bottom. It has to be at the bottom as the bolt holes are not equidistantly spaced, there being a wider gap across the bottom pair that the rest of the holes. It's now on and all I need to do is tidy up the trailing cord and make sure that it won't come undone.
It did have them fitted when I bought it but they finally disintegrated and underneath the remnants of leather and road gunge the swivels were in excellent condition and I hope that the new gaiters will keep them that way

 It's something I had been meaning to do for some time being a contributor on the forum but with my impending hip replacement I never got around to it.  The hip has now been replaced and I have been given the ok to drive the Land Rover so I thought I'd better go ahead and join and here I am.

Hi Neil, It seems odd welcoming you today because you've been very active on the forum, what's stopped you joining before now?

Yep the magazine is a first rate publication  :first

Hmm... why is the word 'b****y' a word that needs to be censored?

Hi Correus,

I spent my last two years in the RAF, on an RAAF base "two hoots and a holler" from Viet Nam. The base had it's own radio station, which played lot's of listener's requests. Where necessary, naughty words were bleeped out.

We had to listen to " SNoopy and The BLEEP Red Baron ", and "She walks the BLEEP tower ... with her head tucked underneath her arm". (Spikr Milligan)

Strangely, Spike's rendition of "AUSTRALIA", was a little insulting, but not censored. Does anybody know the words?

In 1967 the RAAF "White Mice" (ex-Korean War F86 Sabre fighter jets) were replaced with Desault Mysteres, more suitable for their war in Viet Nam. I think that was the year that fighters (Buccaneers?) were dispersed from HMS Eagle ... two trundled up the public road between the two guard-rooms at Butterworth, which were about a mile apart. Wings folded, jet engines pushing them along.  :stars  I was told that one of our Bloodhound SAMs had made the same journey, but on a side-loading fork-truck.  I assume the local drivers were suitably impressed.


Any idea why the word is considered 'offensive'?

I recently joined the Club and today a large envelope arrived. I thought it was CLR come early but it was my welcome pack with the summer issue of Built2last. This is a really professional magazine. I've only had a quick look through it as it's going to take a while to read. I'm really impressed with it.
I will display the sticker on my Series 3.
The magazine alone is well worth the membership fee.

I suspect a lot of members are unaware of just what a treasure trove of stuff is held on the website ?   Its a bit of a faff that it needs a separate login to access it but once in there, tons of stuff becomes available.


I`m in the treasure trove and just realised I`ve been here before, but with the passing of time I forgot the route  :stars
