Re: If u wait, it will be 2 late !!

Merlin, you are a wizard ! It is not my intention to worry people but to warn them to be prepared. I am well aware that many think that I am more than just a bit eccentric and that is their good right. But if you think that I am nuts google the following: 2012 solar storm, then choose 'NASA Upgrades...

Re: Sponsor Jeremy Moger

A lot of valuable comments all loaded with truth and emotion. I should like to add to the debate by highlighting Bob's and Trevor's comments: Bob: 'Charity begins at home'. This simply must be correct, because if we are not ourselves healthy how can we help others without further weakening our own p...

Re: If u wait, it will be 2 late !!

You wonderful optimist Trevor. Science has been searching for perpetual motion since man could read, write and add up. I somehow doubt that the Great British Workforce will continue to go-to-work once the havoc has broken out. They will react just like the peoples of the third world and plunder the ...

This a'hole tells the truth ! Sorry guy's I was not refering to myself, though some might think it rather appropriate.

If u wait, it will be 2 late !!

Bank crisis here, bank crisis there, who cares ? Hardly anybody that I know has been adversely affected by the bank crisis, because … we simply do not have large amounts of savings. Even so, those greedy (w)bankers and their thieving buddies have created a situation that will, sooner rather than lat...

14/20 KH Regimental Flag

Dear all, How many of you proud hawks would like to own a printed copy of the Regimental Flag of the 14/20th KH ? It is only an idea at this stage but if enough of you show interest I would consider funding the production. My target would be to keep the cost down to a minimum, even so it would cost ...

working holiday near Berlin !

We live on a small-holding 40 km (3,-€ on the train) west of Berlin and have a number of heavy projects planned this year and so are looking for strong, fit, non-smoking people who are willing to help, no special skills needed. It occurs to us that some of you might like to visit Berlin, or know som...

Re: 20th Hussars Officers shoulder belt?

Hi Rick and family, can't help with the OSB. Also can't think that a bit of water would bother you too much, I recall you being a very capable canoer ! If you need a good doctor in Brisbane I can recommend a former Aus. SF Col. friend of mine ... send me a pm. Take care and 'chin up' 'down under'. BB

Re: Porton Down testing in 1971 or 72.

Im sure Parky Taylor was involved in the tests, if you can locate him maybe also Jake Flemming. Also some of the Para Sqn RAC lads while based at Old Sarum. Try their OCA to make contact.
