    A friend of mine (finally?) finished his Bren carrier this spring...truly a labour of love/hate from a bog recovery to something "useful".

    Thats bad luck BD6 it was only that piece of wood near the road wheel that gave the game away you (the officers wanted it for their pot belly stove) should have said it was for the kitchen fire at home.

    I saw a Chieftain Tk for sale a while ago $60,000 which I thought was a steel!

    It occurs to me very often these days, that had I had a big enough aircraft hangar, I could have stored many of these everyday items back in the day, that are now worth an absolute fortune.
    But blessed with that 20/20 vision and hindsight as to what to keep!!

    When you compare those farmers and liberated people in European countries at the end of the war who had nothing.........they soon learnt to squander the Military hardware in back barns and farm yards etc before the Allied clear up boys got on the job. Clearly the odd tank or armoured car or hundreds of 4T or Bren chests were just kept for a rainy day, with noone around to object to a clearup!!
    'Tonight my men and I have been through hell and back again, but the look on your faces when we let you out of the hall - we'd do it all again tomorrow.' Major Chris Keeble's words to Goose Green villagers on 29th May 1982 - 2 PARA

    I saw a show just recently on the Temora airshow just a blurb about the Spitfire they said one would set you back $4 million now days if you wanted one when you think what they cost in 1939-1945 coupled with their service life expectancy who would have known then that they would create such a legacy in today's world.....

    Somewhere I have or have seen a photograph of a U.S. military aircraft being blown up in the U.K. at the end of WW2 because it was considered the simplest method of disposing of a surplus aircraft rather than shipping it back to the States or dismantling it in the conventional manner.
