My lovely wife took me to to the local Military Aviation Museum. We got to see up close about forty WWII aircraft, all flying and museum restored, about twenty replica WWI planes, and two actual WWI aircraft. From WWII we walked around the Spitfire Mk IX, the Hawker Hurricane Mk XII, the DeHaviland Mosquito, the P-51, the P-4e, the Yak 3M, the FG4U Corsair, the FM-2 Wildcat, the TBM Avenger, the B-25 Mitchell, the PBY Catalina, the Focke-Wulf Fw 190A, the Junkers JU-52, the Fiesler Storch, the Boeing P-26 Peashooter replica, a Curtiss C-46, and a bunch more. Unfortunately the original BF-109G ..read more

War Work for the MG Car Company

MG had some difficulties in obtaining war work, rather surprisingly for a small/medium-sized engineering concern, but one of their jobs appears to have been degreasing P17s received from the US. This photo appeared in last August's number of the MG Owner's Club's magazine. Attached Thumbnails   ..read more

A Fairly Large Aircraft Noise This Morning

Looking upwards I could see the unmistakable "double engine nacelles", shape and outline of a B52 bomber. I was not that far from RAF Fairford and it was flying in that general direction. Looking online I see that there are several currently over here, presumably as part of the current, ongoing, NATO exercise ..read more

Air Pump for Willys MB

I was fortunate to receive an original Air Pump, for my Jeep. It is made by Walker Manufacturing. It needs a bit of restoration; replacement hose and pump seals. But the inside of the tube is in great shape; having been well greased. Luckily the mounting brackets are still fitted to the rear seat. Apparently the French Army often removed the brackets. However I will need to source or make the handle clamp and wing nut. Attachment 136212Attachment 136213 Attached Thumbnails     ..read more

Lucas Military Vehicle Headlamp L-WD-H1-R

One of the many items that my late father purchased from the local government surplus store, in the late 1940's or 1950's was this British military vehicle headlamp, L-WD-H1-R. As I understand it this type of headlamp was in use during WW2 on British military vehicles but with a mask to deflect the light downwards. The reason for purchasing this lamp was to use it as an auxiliary driving lamp and a fog lamp on a number of vehicles and possibly also motorcycles. Attached Thumbnails             ..read more

Butler Military Vehicle Side/Marker Lights

Butler manufactured a range of lights post WW2 for British military vehicles including these side/marker lights which are new old stock. I picked this pair up in the 1980's, still with remains of storage grease, intending to use them on a project but never did and, fortunately, I held onto the lights. There must have been a large amount of these released from storage in the 1980's onto the surplus market as NOS as they could be picked up relatively easily and cheaply then. I believe that this style of light was used from around the late 1940's through the 1950's. Attached Thumbnails   ..read more

Even better in the flesh; the rattle of track links, the roar of the Panther, the Swiss smoothness of the Pz 68, the cuteness of the Kettenkrad. This could be an annual family outing ..read more

I came across this literature from Agricultural Vehicles today which dates to 1965. The company use to be quite well known in the UK for ex MOD/government vehicles. Does anyone know what happened to them? Attached Thumbnails                         ..read more
