Somewhere in Hell Joseph Lucas is hoisting a mug of luke-warm Guiness while the lights flicker overhead.

Don't start me on how Dowding was treated so shabbily by the top brass after he saved England's @ss in spite of that fool Leigh-Mallory.... who went on to create other near disasters that were averted by others.

Pip pip! Cheerio! Should have had the right parents, old chap. Sorry!

That's why there is no British Empire any more.

Wow! It's neat when you find other people who know about some obscure reference in your brain.

It just popped up when I read "Mallory Park".

'91, maybe '92 was the first year model in the U.S., IIRC.
