Hi Keith,

Nice pictures, thanks for sharing.

Glad you got home safe in the heavy rain.

I spy a 105E. Were there any Mk1/2 Escorts?

Rgds,
Gordon

Ok , I know it's a military and LWT forum but who doesn't pine over a British Leyland , 70s classic or commercial.
Personally I love em all especially the 67 Routemaster.
Gordon,
I'm guessing the Anglia has a spot in your heart as does the M1/2s like me . Huge turn out of escorts but the Marina took top spot for me . 78 Marina was my first car and is also my wife's Name . Absolutely as new condition . The RRC isa 72.
