After seeing the NVA kit in the first two photos I was desperately searching for NVA in all of the others. I thought it was some sort of NVA-themed "Where's Wally," until I realised that Wally was actually sitting in front of the screen, in my living room. :roll:

Great idea. We'll have to go back to The Black Bull to plant them, though. Oh, well...

That's not a table, but a very early, wooden, example of a power bank.

I wasn't sure if this photo shoot was to publicise NVA gear or an excuse for downing real ale and pub grub :mrgreen:

It is a picturesque location. Reminds me of the Brecon Beacons National Park near me.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc
