  2. One of the BAOR myths was that a Bill Oddie went awol sans Stally and made it to the Essex coast?

    Anyone know the gen?
  3. Without a Stally? Must have got a ferry then, easy peasy ;-)

  4. Yep, I am a Mong, and the veltins is flowing. Delete "sans", replace with Stally.
  5. Unfortunatley by the time i was in charge of my Stallys the swim capability had been removed.
  6. Used to love driving the *******!....Even better if you could keep your bottle in reverse and seeing how high in the gears you could get!

  7. 11th Hussar. It's been done several times on here. Brownhat will be along soon with the gen.
    He didn't cross the Channel.
  8. There's a similar clip of a BMP1 going into a river at a lick. Subsequently (IIRC) a similar vehicle is shown crawling out of the river on the far side, the story was that lemming-like one had gone down with all hands.
