    What do you think of my chest?

    L42a1 received the other day and now, slowing, I have been working on cleaning the outer paint off to reveal the hidden mysteries of the L42a1's past.

    Forgive my flippancy speckles, but 'What do you think of my chest?' is the stuff of Barbara Windsor & 'Carry On' films!

    And yes, I very much admire your rifle, transit chest & accessories.

    Rule Britannia as the quick march of an infantry regiment. Fancy that.
