Marham Relics ...

Just a heads up ...



Watch BBC1s Antiques Roadshow at 8pm, Sunday, 23rd June. The episode is the final in the present series and the second from RAF Marham in Norfolk. Join Fiona Bruce and the experts as they view antiques and collectibles brought in by 3,500 members of the public to one of the RAFs most important main operating bases.
Might be a good idea if the Stores had a good clear out ... bound to be stuff from WWII still on charge

Probably still some leftover paint from the late '50s when I was ordered, as barrack room Corporal, to have all the beds painted pale blue.

Is this a repeat of a programme broadcast ISTR last autumn?

Is the RAF that strapped for cash it has to sell off all it's silverware? Time to get the uckers trophy out to save the Sqn from disbandment.

Marham antiques? I thought this would be about the honorary member who use to hang around the bar in the late 80's and early 90's drinking himself to a standstill.

or indeed see the jet powered Slingsby - as FB proudly and frothily announced "this is the first exhibit we have ever had delivered by a jet!", a few minutes after a shot of the Slingsby shutting down.

The very white and Germanic Slingsby cunning disguised as a Tutor? Must have been shot a long time ago...
