Thanks. 'Twas nice to see that part of Britain again.

PS: I like the way you'd need to buy a round of drinks if you mentioned the number of the Dambusters Sqn. We should do that for Wabbit Sqn here. :P

Ha! I noted that too. A nod to the past and a mark of respect. It's amusing how certain tradiations get established.
I thought the camera views were outstanding and worth the post to record it.

As an aside, I was on a project years ago (setting up a factory) and as usual we were a small team working all hours. Anyway, long story short, the rule got established that any talk of work "outside of the office" would earn a penalty shot Palinka (a Hungarian Schnapps/Moonshine that I beleive the Germans used to power their V1).

The thing was, the penalty was often delayed and often when you thought you'd gotten away with it, (weeks later in some cases), would a small glass suddenly and quietly appear beside you ... and you knew why!

Protests were expected, encouraged indeed, for dramatic effect but were otherwise entirely pointless.
You took your medicine and that was all she wrote.

Good times!
