Just as a wee observation these deaths are the unequivocal ones as most hospitals and doctors dont realy like to brand their bodies as Alcoholics so the vast majority are specified as the failure of the organ/s which alcohol has destroyed, so its very reasonable to say that you could reasonable double these figures and still be on the conservative side. How do I know? Well five suicides several unexplained deaths and anuber of Alcoholics who died of "heart attacks" who were practicing alkies.
How long do you have to practice before you become a professional?

I'll just leave this 1961 report /trick photography here with a couple of observations ....

Look at the volume of Motorway traffic .

Look at the price of Petrol at 4s 8d per Gallon or approximately in modern parlance ~ 12 p per Litre


.... one of the big problems at the time was that a lot of the cars on the road just could not cope with sustained high speed motoring .

A question for you rum bum and lash boys.
If naval fisticuffs develop with the frog what are our chances?
As an outsider, if they give us a few years head start to build some boats, we should be OK.

What a wonderful old film. Was there ever a better narrator or commentator than Raymond Baxter?

a lovely man, he used to own one of the Dunkirk Little ships, and was a founder member of the association
he competed in the Monte Carlo rally 12 times, and so much more, not bad for a lad from Ilford who got booted out of Grammar School for smoking



On February 14, several R.A.F. Spitfire aircraft had just finished a bombing run over Wassenaar when a V2 was fired from the forest. One of the aircraft tried to attack to fast moving rocket, but was unable to hit the target from 600 meters. R.A.F. pilot Raymond Baxter remembers,
“…I read in my log book that we attacked a target just North above The Hague on 14 February 1945. I must have been in a very aggressive mood because I read in my logbook that after a dive attack of 6000 feet, I ordered the boys to return to attack the anti-aircraft defense, which was trying to make it difficult for us. After we dropped the bombs I saw to my surprise at a distance of 600 meters a V2 out of the forest, that we just had bombed, rising into the air, very slowly. Right in front of us. It was an incredible sight and it was so unexpected that I couldn't do anything about it. But my number three, a Scotchman called Cupid Love, responded very fast and shot at the V2 that was rising slowly. It must have been one of the most optimistic shots of the entire war. So far as I know this was the only time in history of the war that a dive-bomber attacked a rocket in the air. Fortunately, he didn’t hit the rocket. I say fortunately, because if he had hit the rocket, the war would have been ended for me quite abruptly.”
