  1. Rare footage

    Avebury lost its magic for me when I found out it was built in the 1930s. Same with Stonehenge, army rebuilt it in the 1950s/60s with concrete foundations.
  3. Metric stupidity

    It's a little known fact that narrowboat passing port to port on a narrow canal can create enough air turbulence to trigger a tornado but only above 4mph, that's why BW introduced that speed limit in the first place. They originally considered limiting cruising a ring to clock wise direction only, but of course that was before Ecofans made an appearance.
  4. Metric stupidity

    Usually but not always. Another myth is opening windows to reduce tornado damage.
  5. Metric stupidity

    I read somewhere that the UK has the most tornadoes worldwide, perhaps this is down to our canal boats carrying Ecofan and cruising on the right.
  6. Metric stupidity

    It's been suggested by some scientists that countries in the northern hemisphere that drive on the right could reduce the number of tornadoes by driving on the left.
  7. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    When AIDS first appeared we started wearing medical gloves under our normal ones when attending road accidents, some of us wore two pairs!
  8. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    Zip gun was a bit loud though. I could work faster by hand with a GP saw than a Cengar saw. Hacksaw blades for Cengar were brittle and easily snapped, much better when we got ones that were flexible. Still a bit iffy using one on a casualty affected by nerve agent I would think!
  9. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    Same here, though we didn't have anything at first just left to the individual whether to use his own handkerchief or not. It was all a bit primitive in my early days when I look back, struggling to release folk from cars with a collection of hand tools, the introduction of large hydraulic jaws etc was a big leap forward.
  10. Lidle pump & fuel tank cleaning

    It's several years ago now so can't recall exact details but I modified a Pella suction oil changer to accept large bore tubing, 15mm or so, that connected to a length of 15mm Polyplumb tubing to reach bottom of tank. At the top of the Polyplumb tube I fitted a full bore valve, this was closed while I got the Pella fully evacuated, when valve was opened it gave a quick lift from fuel tank rather than the slow action of a standard small bore Pella.

    Maybe policeman attempted mouth to mouth resuscitation with skin to skin contact whereas paramedics wouldn't do that and would be wearing gloves.
  12. Direct Line

    Apparently £1 notes are no longer legal tender.
  13. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    Correct. Though I don't think it's all from bulls.
  14. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    We're all mushrooms.
  15. Nerve agent attack in Salisbury

    Witnessing the army convoy with heavy police escorts on the way to retrieve a car from the home of the policeman affected by nerve agent it did seem to me a bit OTT.
