I wish they wouldn’t line these Sidcot suits with lambs fur, it’s like Velcro when taking it off.

While walking past the gate guard at Scampton Marham , Lucy found she had inadvertently bought the Victor at the auction.

That was rather quieter than I had expected. Sorry about the uninspiring offering! I had been thinking along the lines of ... "Oh look, it's Hoskins, the famous 20-minuter. In my experience more mile a 5-minuter, but you can't win them all."

Anyway, to clear the air for next week's activity ...
