It seems only fair, having nabbed Bob from LRM
last weekend at Bramham, that I should also get
a few pics of one of the very few remaining
"real journalists" on the Land Rover comic scene...
Frank Elson - also from LRM, pictured here in
the beer tent, (where else, eh, Frank?)
It's no secret that I have a lot of time for Frank :-)

This very unusual 'special' from Germany turned up and blew me away
on the Fridfay evening. A true Defender 155 (see their registration plate!)

As always, we arrived early and set up our stall...

Kevin and Jackie arrived early (very) the next morning
Note the pot on Kevins leg - as a result of a tangle with some
welding bottles a few weeks or so ago!

Add The superb new purchase by Peter and Paul Snelling
(And a welcome to them as new members of the 101 club)

Note the three levers in the middle? Winch, Hi-Lo AND overdrive!
They win the award for best recent purchase as far as I'm concerned!

Met up with Phil Douglas again, and the chap with
the smashing silver Radio Bodied 101 who (hint) forgot
to renew his membership... ;-)

Then it started to rain, and
EVERYONE started getting a
bit stuck in the mud!

A Moggy - with less room
in the back than Grumble!
