@slipperman 2 years National Service with Royal Signals I think, rose to the dizzy heights of Signalman...Gordon Banks RIP. From the days when you could name every player in your team and a few other teams besides. I still vividly remember his save from Pele at the 1970 World Cup - awesome. Childhood memories. Very sad, but I believe he had been ill for sometime.
Thanks @Chodmeister - I recall being told that some years back and there is a thread up now on the RSA site in tribute to our ex Corps man. I wonder if he represented Combined Services during his service?
The founder of the Haynes motor manuals - known for their distinctive "exploding" diagrams - has died aged 80.
John Haynes started the firm after helping fix an Austin Healey Sprite and realising the official manual was "not designed to help an average car owner".
His manual was published in 1966 and later books for cars went on to sell more than 200 million copies
Look back a bit
Loved him in Skyfall. Dunno anyone else who could say "Just try and stop me, you jumped up little shit" to James Bond like he did.
He's already pickled is whyOnly if he's flattened by a truck. The old dog will probably beat flu, he's beaten everything else Even he isn't sure why he's not dead yet and says there's no plausible medical reason. Some say Ozzy's a genetic mutant with his own Ozzy genome.
I used to the Inventory Manager on a Halfords contract and in our stock were the Haynes Manuals.J
The newer manuals on aircraft etc are really good too (I spent all my pocket money recently on the ones for the Mosquito, Stuka and Tiger tank as they were reduced in The Works bookshop and cheaper than a magazine from Smiths.)
