I’ve got one! I‘ve got one!

A few weeks ago there were a few bits of flooding on a country lane. Nothing too dramatic.

I was following a chap in a LR Discovery who waved down and stopped every single car coming in the opposite direction and warned them at length of the mortal perils ahead. Thank goodness for the 4x4 equipped hero as without his help the poor motorists would obviously not see the big puddles for themselves.

I amused myself by telling the bemused motorists that they would be perfectly fine, then I overtook the Discovery in the next flooded section. The hero’s face was a picture. He wasn’t wearing HV so was unable to do more than glare at me.

Classic.

The most exciting and frightening thing that’s happened in his year and you just got on with it.

Reminds me a bit of a few years back one snowy day in The Lakes. I had a little C1 and needed to get from Windermere to Penrith, so took the road of over Kirkstone pass. There was a fair bit of snow on the run up, decent deep tracks, but the C1 just ploughed on. At the top I stopped for a quick drink at the pub, where there were flocks of 4x4 drivers congratulating themselves on having made it up the into the wilderness. They seemed a bit put out that I'd even attempted it without carrying enough provisions, snorkels, snow chains, guns, tinned food or 'one life, live it!' stickers.

We had a similar one, but it was the other way round

Been out on Salisbury plain off roaring in my jimmy with some chums

On the actual plains there were mad snow drifts

Got back on the road and stopped in a lay-by to let people catch up etc

I remember us all being stuck for 10 minutes or so as we were sliding about unable to steer

Remember some old lady coming past in a 106 shaking her heads at us

That’s also in the official police YouTube account of this weirdo’s antics.
I think he’s well and truly over the line marked “mentally ill”.

It's not necessarily the T-shirt I find offensive.

It's calling themselves "The Few" ie. likening themselves to WW2 fighter pilots.

"Never was so much owed by so many to so few ..."

Oh do fk off. Cringe factor is off the scale ...

They are not flying Hurricanes or Spitfires and facing an enemy who wants to kill them, they are driving around in clapped out, modified Land Rovers in half an inch of snow.

wkers.

Well said red 4
Exactly – just what I was thinking.
Helping other people in a difficult situation should be normal human behaviour and not require a crappy tee shirt to glorify it.
Taking a nurse to work in the snow or towing a car out of a ditch does not make you comparable to these men.

Nothing like a PH legendary thread to raise one's spirits when life gets a bit scensoredt. I've just found this one and I'm still out of breath from laughing. smile
When I reached the post above however I did a double take because I realised I had seen that very pic a couple of days ago!
In Tom Neil's book 'Scramble' (he's the tall chap in front of the Hurricane's spinner)

It is the best known of a number of official publicity photographs taken by the famous snapper Cecil Beaton during a visit to 249 Squadron based at North Weald in September 1940.
l-r: P/O Percival Ross-Frames 'Percy' Burton; Flt/Lt Robert 'Butch' Barton; Flt/Lt Albert Gerald 'Zulu' Lewis; P/O Terry 'Ossie' Crossey; P/O Tom 'Ginger' Neil; P/O Hugh John Sherard 'Beazel' Beazley; Sqn/Ldr John Grandy C/O; P/O George Barclay; Flt/Lt Keith Lofts.
Amazingly, seven out of the nine in that group survived the war. Only Burton and Barclay were KIA (Burton 6 days after the pic was taken and Barclay in July 1942).
