And no mention of Joanna Lumley!

Cheers all.

Well done Hydromet and many thanks Penny washers - I sent the CSM by drone late last week so you may care to have a word or two with the West Sussex Constabulary.

A very merry Christmas to all you captioneers!

Thank you, Penny Washers, I'm sure the CST will turn up in the post-Christmas mail. In the meantime, I shall try to find a suitable photo for the last of the year.
