Oh yes, we got back ok, despite being stuck at portsmouth for an hour by the main door being stuck shut! we ended up getting herded down a ramp onto the lorry deck after all the lorries left.

it was a good trip. i never got to meet you i don't think MarkyB. It was only when i got back that i remembered you were going!

Got back safe & sound, great trip, 1300 miles in 2 weeks, had a few days on the Normandy landing beaches, stacks of WW2 military vehicles, Jeeps galore. Good to meet old friends again on the trip. :D

Mostly for Roys entertainment, here is a video of some of "what I did on my holiday" after MOT had finished:

It was a most enjoyable thing to do even on a rather wet day, the smell took me back a lot of years to when there were steam trains on British Rail.
