Recommended Posts

Archie Coats Land Rover still going and has covered over 240k miles, it was first registered in December 1987, I wonder who owns it now?

Yep, and its needed a fair amount of work on it over the last few years to get it through the MOT’s, I wonder if the owner knows the history of the Land Rover, might be a shooting man? possibly a PW member?

My E was October 87, I think?

That explains it!

Letter changed in August then, so D would be Aug 86 to Jul 87.

Or maybe not if Archie’s was Dec 87.

Dunno, give up.

Memory on the way out, but earlier on didn't some counties have a different start year although even if so it would have been corrected by then.

I've just re read his 1963 book.

Still a good read.

 

Bag of cartridges, flask of tea, bottle of Whisky, great days sport.

If only it was still like that.

Oh it still is in some places.   I'm glad to say that I live in one of them.

Thanks for posting db135.   I enjoyed that.

I think the whisky bottle had water for the dog.

I think that the most revealing aspect is the final two paragraphs of 'Hides and Hide Sitings' which is only in the 1970 Edition - and any later ones I would imagine.

Chokes?

And there you have it. Patterned on old newspapers, shot fixed chokes and still shot more per year than most folk in a lifetime.

Agree, but in the main I was referring simply to the shot size - 7s.
