[quote="jimsigs1"] Sets 62, 19, 19HP, 52, R109. Generators 27.5 KVA. Tele F, Tele L, 10 line magneto (exchange).

This Plankey old Gunner can only own to those items listed above, (plus others more modern, of course).
But isn't it nice to watch these scaleys get stroppy ?
Clearly they lack the self-discipline inherent in the more senior regiments.

"O" Group, my chateau, 1 hour. Be there !

You don`t want me there.Sir

I once had the impudence along with one other,who shall remain nameless, to tape record the O group of the 1(BR) Rear Corps Commander.

Extract from my site:- " Tape recording the Rear Corps Commanders "orders group" for a bet and the subsequent flying s$%# when it was discovered"

Maybe in Scaleyspeak you are quite correct, but " Morse Code " is printed as just that in reputable English dictionaries.

Now there`s a big beastie that was brought down to pocket size..

Another kit that was thrust upon us poor untrained scaleys was the Mu Fax..WTFIT i hear you ask.
This must have been the very first fax machine ever manufactured.And consisted of a very large transmission unit, a not so large electronic unit and a similar sized receiver.All mounted in a 1/4 ton trailer.
This was kept at Corps HQ as a toy for the staff officers,who never could get it to work,resulting in a line/Tech having to leg it from the comhead to HQ so that the staff could play their games.
Fortunatly it didn`t catch on.

A present Fax machine is the size of an A4 sheet of paper..

And I thought you meant me ! Tell though, was a it a D9, that truck mounted kit they unsuccessfully tried to interest me in. Ex. Merchant Marine thing I seem to recall. Never gave too much trouble, but like all these bits & pieces which were permanently mounted in a wagon, it was the antiquated Austin 1-tonner which broke down & interfered with comms.

Teabag,
Morse has always been referred to as 'The Morse Code'. Ask Samual Morse !!
As for the T100. I've got one of those in my garage. Here's a picture :


Not quite the same as the White Helmets. They use the old Harris 750 Bonnevilles of the 1980s before John Bloor built his new Triumph factory.

I thought Morse was a Chief Inspector in Oxford.
His sidekick, Lewis was a bit of a prat.

At least they changed the name of the programme.

The one from up Scotland is still called `Taggart`.

Why?

Ooh! You know how to make a fella jealous ! Looks magnificent......... never did rate those rotating footrest machines that hog the pavements, but I still lust after a two wheeler with an engine. Best two weeks I had in the Army was an Advanced M/c Instructor's Course at Bordon. In Minden Bty we had Matchless G3Ls in the main, two BSA M20s & a Matchless G3 which was like the G3Ls but was an earlier model. It had girder fronts and lacked the decompression plate which was bolted under the cyl. barrel on the G3L to knock the compression ratio down. A Triumph TRW came into regt for testing....... all Army green & chrome, but RHQ kept it for the short time it was with us & no one else got their hands on it.

Just when I thought this subject was cut and dried !

I'm reading an excellent book called "Diary of an Old Contemptible", (no, it's NOT about Gordon !).
The author is walking around, in Baghdad, trying to buy booze, when he hears sounds of merriment from some men in a room above a shop.
Looking up he sees that they are, quoting from the book,
"Scaly backs" (Navy men).
This was in 1916.

Back to the drawing board, you PRONTO chappies !

Hmm, as an ex-scaley myself, does the Corps Musuem at Blandford sell books via the Internet etc on some of the history of the Corps..... I have this sense of Xmas nostalgia coming on and want to read up what I was supposed to be doing back in the 1960s and 1970s when I was supposed to be a fit young fella, and a hero and warrior of this nation..... Hmm, I think that I spent either too much time gonking on my pit, in the NAAFI Canteen stuffing myself with cheese and onion baps, or too much tome in the Corporals Mess getting plenty of Amber Nectar down my neck......

Honest, I'm a reformed character now, most law abiding Sir.... says me, as Nurse Olga and Matron keep me in check with Meds...... lolo Havent been wheeled into the Reading Room and shown the mess webley by the Mess Presdient yet.........!!! bounce pale drunken Sleep
