It may come in useful if a cyclist crosses over a four road junction against a red light, narrowly misses being knocked over and then tries to blame you! This happened to me last week.

This is my first post of 2015 so I am quite rusty, especially as I am on a steep learning with my new camera.

Re: Old gold, from Alan Noble

The Hurricane PZ865 shown at North Weald is now with the BBMF at Coningsby.

Re: Some memories of the first of the Waddo dynasty

Many congrats on your Anniversary Paddy. Enjoy your cruise.

Mrs P has beaten me - I tried to get my "other half" to do the same four years ago (same reason) but had no luck.

Hope you both have a great time. :roll: :cool:

Happy New Year everyone.
