  1. Not sure he had a twin brother who lived in Australia. Terry lived in Feltham. He used to be a regular at the game fair often sleeping in the wagbi/basc tent
  2. Totally agree with Wymberly basc members enclosure was the meeting place for old and new friends to catch up, it also had it's own bar. Not as posh as the old bfss but had some good times there usually meeting up with my old mate Terry Harbour with his dogs sadly long gone. Went this year basc stand was quite sparse and a bit boring.

  3. Also tried to order twice, unprimed 20 and unprimed 12 bore cartridges. Once in July 2020 and again in Feb this year, email reply to arrange postage. Not heard a dicky bird since.
  4. Hi all just reading the topic about greener gp's. My wife bought me one in 1977 as a birthday pressie from S R Jefferies in Guilford now long gone, apparently it was found in a barn. I think it cost about £40, it is a take down model has a thumb screw on the lhs of the action to remove the barrel, serial no 1382 with a 26in barrel. it stills shoots well albeit with 2 1/2 in chambers. It has been used for anything from geese to charlie. would it be possible to find the date of build. Many thanks Dave
