Since 2003. With a million hits since 2005. Wow

I'm not surprised the site is on a list of the top 10 ...

Classy site  :thumbsup:

Actually Data, I did appreciate your 'so-bad-it's-good' posts in the music thread  :D

Oh and good to see that the pylon site is back on-line, I was getting worried there.

Ohh - just saw two people collect the mail on the grass site  :LOL:

Totally agree, there's someone who definitely needs to stay in more.  :-\
It WILL be fine !...

Well, it started off pretty cool, with that rather graphic image of that bollocks... Er... Bollard... sticking through that cartoon person's chest, but then it got rather uninteresting, rather quickly.

That is..........you know what I can't even find a description it's that uniteresting  :-X

Now personally I've found this one quite interesting as I love military history, however I can see that a lot of people would find this pretty boring:

That's not boring to me either.  We used to play in Pill Boxes.  And funnily enough yesterday Dad and me were looking at photos of one on the beach where my Grandad shot off a load of rounds because he thought someone was out there.

I remember checking out the pillboxes at cuckmere haven when i was a kid.......didn't go in tyhem thjough they stank from being used as a latrine  :confused:

I think this guy is a bit on the mad side though, he has spent 7 years mapping out all the defenses in east sussex including slit trenches.....in hios spare time!!!!

On the plus side he will be publishing a book at some point  :D

Nor me actually, having lived in East Sussex all my life, these things are interesting to follow. I also remember playing on, not in, Pill Box's over at Shoreham Airport as a kid, trying to imagine what it must have been like to Man on of these.  8)
It WILL be fine !...

In that case check out the video on the website, he's shown how the bren and vickers were mounted in them Diesel  :thumbsup:
