Can I add into the mix the worst change of any military museum ever. The blocking out of the beautiful and bright glass roof at IWM Lambeth with a concrete floor and adding dark, dingy pillars to what was a very bright and airy museum.
Combine that with poor exhibit signage and IWM Lambeth has gone from one of the best, to one of the worst museums in the UK imho.

Old Warden saved !!!

There we are, we have solved the Old Warden problem 'They need to open a 'pasty shop' and then hold the worlds only 'pasty fly in' .
We can bring in a shed load** direct from L-End and avoid customs duty.
Hot news down here at present is local Pasty company taken over by the French !!!
Question is how many Cornish standard pasties can you get in a BN2 (without using the seat next to the driver)
Where is the BTC image Treads !!!, It took a Xmas cake from L-End to Iran in 81.

While at the espionage air display last week, I spotted that a small Ukranian flag has been attached to a wing strut on both sides of the soviet Po-2. A subtle but effective corporate gesture. Well done Shuttleworth.
