Jerry,

That BMW 501/502 series were one of my favourite cars. Remember those from my time in BAOR 1952. They provided a choice of V8 or six cylinder engines.

The Fiat 500 in front of it could have been the one that I had around 66, didn't need a Jack, just turned it on it's side and changed the wheel. I spotted a lovely refurbished one outside Ikea in South Nicosia but time had clouded my memories!!

They were overflow Married quarters, near to the Bridge camp in Hameln, we lived in one for three months until a Quarter was ready for us in Tundern,They were very comfortable, and could sleep six.
Basically a caravan on Ski's.

Jerry,

That reminds me on the caravan type Married Quarters on the square of North Camp, Maresfield Barracks - 7 Signal Regt during the 1960's.

I mentioned the chap who picked up his new Citroen from Paris in the 1960's. You have to agree it was ahead of its time then. I had fairly recently its successor - the Citroen XM. But anyway, here is the DS19

Well I did try and that's what I came up with, why is it that to make an album on progs like fb al you have to do is pick up and drop, all the messing around on this site and after all that just managed to get the web address, when I come across things like this it makes me realise why I always preferred working on hardware Mad

Fear naught Les, I've been having the same problem. The first time that I used it I didn't have a problem, I tried using it yesterday, got my Log in details and Password OK and managed to upload a photograph but it refused to transfer it to this site! Wished I'd joined the R Sigs now!! Rolling Eyes

Its really quite simple Shelldrake, once you have uploaded it to Photo Bucket and follow the SAVE instruction .. then choose ALBUM .. you will see the photo you have uploaded .. click on the picture and a drop down menu appears .. choose the HTML code .. click on it to copy .. then paste it into the message window on the relevant BAOR forum.
