Hi All,
I've been trying to find the ROF NOTTINGHAM website. I know it disappeared for a while but I am almost sure It came back. I can not find it at the old url or on google.
Does anyone know what's happened to it?
Regards Paul

Bloke gets some LSD tablets and leaves them on the kitchen table. When he gets back, they're gone. He asks his mother, “Have you seen my tablets?"

"Sod your tablets” says his mother, “There's a dragon on the garden shed. "

I worked at the Royal Ordnance factory-they supported my motorcycling activities quite heavily at the time,though thankfully never found out.
Apparently during WW2, employees wore a lapel badge depicting a ficticious company and location,the idea presumably being that the enemy would be disorientated should the two meet.. It was a proper enamel badge,i think i have one somewhere.
