Hi All, back in the 80s i used to do a lot of civil eng contract work at Warton whilst there i was given a small metal Tornado penknife keyring witch i carried around with me for the next 20 odd years, i then passed it on to my son who had his bag stolen on a train returning home from uni in Preston, the only thing that really upset him despite losing a hard drive,laptop etc was losing the Tornado penknife keyring, so i would love to replace for him, i am prepared to pay good money if anyone has one they wish to sell. thank you Sean.
ps, as my son has just graduated from uni with a B Eng 1st it would be great if i could get him one.
Hi GR4skull Thank you very much, i cant wait to see my sons face when i give it to him. if you would please let me know your charity of choice i would love to make a donation as i believe kindness should be repaid.
'ere, 'ere, 'ere, to all the above! Every now and again a thread like this really lifts the spirits. Well done GR4, you are now PPRuNe Member of the Week, ... well you would be if PPRuNe had such an award, which it should, don't you think?
The penknife/keyring arrived in the post this morning, it is identical to the one
my son had stolen from him, when i gave it to him he was over the moon as he didn't think a replacement could been found, he sends you his gratitude and thanks.
Glad it got there. Bit of history with it is that I got it around the time of the Royal Saudi Airforce buy of 48IDS Tornados (1993 ish) and used it for a while trimming the (hideous but the done thing at the time) spiral binding on Initial Provisioning submissions.
Should you wish to donate to a charity, the South Atlantic Medal Association would be my choice.
Keyring Any chance of seeing a picture of the star of this thread? (ie the keyring - not the donor!). will do as soon as i can work out how to upload pics on to the site
(or when my son comes in and proves how computer illiterate i really am )
