    Default Great surprise

    Hi folks
    As most of you may know my main collecting area is TR, but in a resent trip to the UK i stopped in with a few of the remaining relatives. On the second last day i asked if they new much about my Great uncle a WW2 fighter toilet in RAF. To my surprise my uncle disappeared into the family room and returned with the following. It got better when he said i could have them because i was a History and War kind of Guy

    A fighter... toilet?

    That aside, very nice! Especially coming from a relative, that's something I've never had sadly. You can't put a price on that. Keep hold of them!

    I understand you're feeling a little flushed Morris, but don't get all 'Bloo' about it......
