St George wielding Ashkelon, his mighty sword. Happy St George’s Day.
How I’ve missed you my electronic friend! Now you’re fixed and had a service we can be together again. Your mechanical brother is going back in the garage!
My personal favorite aircraft -Blackburn Buccaneer,famous for it's ultra low level maritime strike capability,designed to deliver tactical nukes,strong as an ox & using 'ground effect' would regularly get down to 'skimming' the sea. Served on Op Granby then finally retired 1994.
Brig James Hill,DSO,MC,North Africa.Fighting German & Italians troops with tanks.Brig Hill drew his revolver,charged towards tanks,dodging fire & poked his wpn through tanks observation holes firing.His actions allowed his men to withdraw safely. He was hit 3 times & survived. 💪5
Rfn Gurung VC–1945 Burma. One man killing machine. In one day killed a sniper, then under direct enemy fire,cleared 5 enemy positions,killing with grenades & bayonets,slaying enemy as they fled with his Kukri.Took up position & repelled a counter attack. Awarded VC Oct 1945.
Lt Gen Adrian Carton de Wiart VC served in British Army in Boer War,1st & 2nd World Wars.Shot in face,head,stomach,ankle,leg,hip & ear;survived 2 plane crashes;tunnelled out of POW camp & tore off own fingers.Awarded VC,KBE,CB,CMG,DSO. Quote- "Frankly, I had enjoyed the war." 💪o

Operation Musketoon - 10 Army Commando's & 2 SOE conducted a daring raid against Glomfjord power plant.Inserted by submarine they climbed sheer rock faces to reach the objective-charges placed & plant destroyed. Being pursued by the Germans, four men escaped,7 executed & 1 KIA.
SA80 A2 set for upgrade to A3 specification to ensure service beyond 2025; A little lighter, hard wearing coating & new brackets. The A2 version was a huge improvement on the A1 and in my opinion, with the upgrades, will continue to be one of the best assault rifles.
I get the temporary detachments,aside the Air Wing C2, why, when there is an enduring need don’t we permanently base fast jet squadrons at RAF Akrotiri?
To complete the set; Operation Black Buck - Vulcan XM607. At the time, longest range bombing mission to neutralise Port Stanley Airfield & radars- low on fuel, high on courage! success meant destroyed radars, un-serviceable runway & Mirage III were withdrawn to the mainland.
One for the Royal Navy! The painting shows HMS Campbeltown sailing on through heavy incoming. The raid on St Nazaire - widely,is regarded as the ballsiest raid & the men who took part the bravest of all time - Direct, brutal & effective!

So Sgt Coombes, RAF, decides that as a passenger, he is so important to the success of a flight he is on, he formerly offers his services to the crew!
Hasn’t the Royal Air Force got themesleves some fancy kit! The best I ever got was a public order visor (badly scratched) and a mildly fireproof balaclava!
Bulkhead,engine, gearbox now out. Bulkhead will be replaced with a new galvanised one.Chassis is v good,will be blasted & galvanised,engine is scrap & replaced with a 200TDI,gearbox is original & will be sold-replaced with an auto. Need to finish stripping chassis!
Det Sgt Bailey has most definitely earned his pay packet! Let’s hope he can make a full recovery and is given all the support to do so. Policeman discharged after Salisbury attack bbc.co.uk/news/uk-435062…

A very productive day, rear body & seat pans off. Thankfully the chassis is very good and solid. Bulkhead needs some work to fix dodgy welding but will get round to that later.....Engine and gear box out next 🔧i
