    Back in the days before the tinterweb, when all the summers were hot and life was in Black and White, it used to be difficult for mere enthusiasts like us to access information, other than spend a small fortune on reference books.

    The enormous information resource that's available today here on Milsurps, thanks to the like of Peter, Roger, Mike and many others, is an absolute treasure chest to me and many others .. Certinly stopped me from making more than one potentially very expensive wrong turn in the past....

    Yep, my suggestion was tongue in cheek! It's one of those we could speculate about indefinitely, but hopefully eventually that someone out there who KNOWS what it means may get to see the thread & put us all out of our misery.....

    That is probably the funniest thing I have heard in a while, but man I feel you. Before milsurps anyone could have fooled me with rubbish like that, and well they kinda did. People on here have saved me a lot of time and effort.

    Thanks

    Thank you all for your input, shame it didn't read JB/007 as I could have sold it for a fortune
    to a Bond fan.
