Hated the series. As I always knew I would be prayed upon the next day when they came up with a new racist name in the show!!
Even in it's day it was so far wrong but there were many others that played on the same stereotypes, Mind Your Language rings a bell although that had Françoise Pascal who in the day I could forgive a lot but time has not been great

What’s the rosette for?
You had to serve between certain dates inside the 200mile exclusion zone or between certain latitudes from memory.
I have seen someone without a rosette but never actually knew why?

Bronze oak leaf is a MID or Mention in Dispatches - or Must Try Harder, because next level would be a gallantry medal!

I guess some of the guys at Ascension got them without the rosette then and probably the Victor aircrew.

How does it know?
No idea, but suspect something in the box that is on the leads measures resistance etc. May just be a VOLVO thing but it is a pain when away on holiday taking 3 cables; One three pin for 'home' charging, one extra long 8m version, and one type 2. Thank god I only went hybrid.

I’ve just googled it and according to Wiki(loadsofb0ll0x)pedia you only had to do 1 trip if aircrew - if Benny was flying you probably deserved a gallantry medal as well!
I don’t qualify as too young and joined in ‘85

i was brought up watching it in the 60s and saved the jam stickers
Well playing with my 3 year old grandson i would say some times come on play the white man now and then .
Last week his mum and dad came in pis d as fu k with me & gave my the riot act
saying that at play school he said this to his little mate who returned home and repeated to his mum a few times
she went in to play school and demanded my grandson and his mother attend a meeting and apologise they did and was told if he said it again he would no longer be allowed to attend play school 3 years old
I am not raciest it was just a saying i was brought up with and i have mates that are blk
next time we have fun i shall say come on play the colonial cousin

Only white Strads should get pulled. White cars, traditionally, are driven by fat Americans from Miami. Black ones aren't much better, but they are better (absolves me from any accusations of racism).

Remind me of the colours of your UR Quattro and 335d....?

Absolutely correct, you cnt! However, the Quattro transcends any fat Yank and the BM's spec makes the colour compromise worth it. Cnt. :D
