Never mind, but thanks for telling me how you found us. I'm sure someone on here will know whether or not the old tank's still there. Try asking on the memories section, that's where all us oldies get. :lol:

:lol: I remember those belts! My brothers used to collect them and the cordite from Budby.

....... And the 501's - how many of us sat in the bath with them on trying to get them to shrink to our own size? I'm not sure it did anything other than turn your legs blue! :lol:
