    Yesterday I did an approx 250 mile round trip to Lyneham in Wiltshire . The purpose of which was to say farewell to an old Air Force buddy of mine who passed away recently, and as I couldn't attend his funeral due to number restrictions I did it the way I thought he would appreciate - a pint of Wadworths 6X in the village pub.
    Rest in peace Tony 'Trapper' Lowe .

    In the past year I have said goodbye to too many in the same way.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    Well done, what a nice thing to do. My other half wanted to cruise by Windsor Castle to say goodbye to Prince Phillip, so we took the Alfa out for a blast although couldn't get that close.
