Yes, I used to do the Puma Turco washes with the lance, also used to do the Wessex with the crushed walnut shell.
We did a Wessex and main stores had got in the wrong grade of walnut shell unbeknown to us, it did a cracking job of cleaning it, it cleaned most of the blades off the spool.

Also used to do Lix washes on the VC10's, we used to do them if they were having relight problems etc, had one crew come in and say No 1, 3 and 4 engines wouldn't relight in low orbit.... Sat there looking at them incredulous and pointed out Rolls Royce say the engines will only relight below XYZ feet... Reply was "but No 2 did"......... We had to wash the lot.
