In order to avoid too much difficulty with traffic regulations the convoy may have to be restricted to 60 vehicles, which should be of Second World War vintage and of all allied nations.

FROSTBITE ISSUE

 

Well, I guess you’ve by now fitted all the goodies you bought yourself as Christmas presents? I’ve gained some new tee shirts, but my post-festive season figure is not conducive to wearing them at the moment!  I have ventured into the garage once or twice to try and sort out my jeep’s lighting issues to no avail (I seem to have a mental block when it comes to electricity) but on a positive note have re-corked the clutch on my DKW motorcycle. I am fortunate enough to have my toys in a fairly decent garage alongside our house, with lighting, power, and heat if I need it, but those who have to work in a lock-up, or outside under makeshift canopies deserve my great respect when the weather starts to bite!

We had an interesting end to the season with our support of Poppy Appeals at local supermarkets; thanks to Chris who took his Dodge WC52 weapons carrier (methinks a rare sight at Sainsbury’s!), Bob and Tom, who both took their jeeps, and special mention in despatches to stalwart William Penny driving his jeep ‘Poppy’ on a 30-mile round trip in pretty disgusting weather!

Duncan (he of the stretched jeep) and his wife Emma ran the Southampton common Poppy Run, raising a fantastic £277.00 between them, whist Bob Cross and I parked our jeeps at the start/finish line to add atmosphere to the event. Naturally we would have signed up as runners, but someone had to look after the jeeps.

 

Continuing a busy November, we parked four jeeps at the entrance to Countess Mountbatten Hospice for an evening with Steve Foster, author of “The Soldier Who Came Back”.  It’s a true story of his father Fred’s audacious and thrilling escape with his friend Tony Coulthard from a POW camp in Poland, and Steve’s tenacious search for Tony’s grave. Fred was also a close mate of Sam Kydd, mentioned in the last Windscreen’s OP, all incarcerated together in Stalag XXA. The book is excellent and highly recommended.
