    Only remember Steve T had a very poor grasp of human anatomy. Where did he qualify as a historian?

    I can imagine how you feel re the TV "take-over"....'must've been tremendously frustrating / annoying (and costly!)...other TV shows have a similar impact....10% of the viewers (us) are muttering "Knob"..."Dick"...."Wasters" somewhat jealously under our breath as the presenters get most facts wrong and talk in that everythings-exciting-and-dangerous tone whilst the other 90% absolutely love it, BELIEVE IT and want more....and when some of the featured pieces turn up at shows they draw a crowd....more interest = more income (for someone...even if it just means the survival of a Fair or Show etc). Hopefully what you will see is the interest exposure this will bring to our area of interest. Yes you'll get a bunch of Air-soft / Gamer equivalents doing whatever it is they actually do but you'll also push some watchers over the edge into the real world...our world.....and that's gotta be a good thing....you may not see it - but it will happen.

    Well done and, for what it's worth, thank you.

    Yep. That's TV people all over: lots of promises but most of them broken.

    I, too, have had my time and resources wasted by such people.

    Steve is a chemist not a professional historian. I guess anyone who collects could claim to be a historian.

    How is the restoration going?
