What an incredible find and it looks to be in such good condition too. :thumbsup:

Allectus has already linked to the BBC article, but here's something similar on the PAS too.

I'm made up with this as a first for me.

Well done.
Thanks Figgis,
Much appreciated, but it's with the help of the hub that its been saved ,otherwise it may well have sat in the scrap or maybe bucket.
So a big thank you to Bors and Allectus,
and thanks to all the other guys for showing appreciation.
Cheers,
Reiver.
