Contact Norwich PRO in their MVL section via the Kithead Trust.

Hopefully the first owner/keeper if nothing else
Further investigations uncovered it was an inside job!!

I’ve looked through my limited van info but can’t see any details on this one. BTW are you still restoring the traveller you recently bought ?

Now if BMC Ecosse was around he would have something to say about those headlamp shrouds. :wink:

You’re not wrong Phil, he had a point but I’d be more worried about the plastic bottle ! :(

I saw the plastic bottle but my comment regarding the headlamp shrouds I though was enough to start a ripple without adding to the situation.
A nice touch is the swallow above the car. Very jealous. For the last 25 years plus I have had swallows in the roof of my barn/workshop but for the last two years (20 & 21) not one has returned to the nests. The bad storm in southern Europe a while ago may have wiped out the swallows that have faithfully and annually returned to the barn/workshop.

The cuckoo and swallows usually return here around about the 25th April. The cuckoo returned as usual but not the swallows :cry: :cry:

Yes, I should have supplemented my comment with the sight of swallow. Quite a profound contrast, the beauty of nature in the sky and the cause of its demise on the ground. :-?

One of the main causes of global warming speeding up thanks to mankind is overpopulation.
It's not just one plastic bottle, we are littering up all over the place.
If there were less people on the planet there would be less polution (and less litter).
But no one wants to raise this issue, as to suggest people on the planet should have fewer children / smaller families is seen as a taboo topic and 'against peoples human rights'........
When everyone is starving because we've utterly exhausted all the planets resources, then someone will pipe up asking why this wasn't raised earlier........... :roll:
Best wishes,
Mike.

Well I know it’s not just one piece of plastic, my post simple related one subject to another. However I agree with your sentiments and it’s awkward to say some things. Less people less litter, probably but if the current amount of people cleared up after themselves that too would mean less litter but yes we are full up. Another upsetting thing regarding starvation is the number of children still being born to face the same terrible situation, I suppose contraception plays a part or lack of it, or may be tradition, I don’t know. Difficult subject.
