  4. Me too Fog...at fire displays and tours..we were told 1940. Some photos say 1938..and said "opened" in 1938! I am sceptical...bet that Leyland is worth a pretty penny today.

  20. Commo, may i pass on my deep sorrow to you Graham and your Daughter Sam. I am sure all Nottstalgia members also feel your loss. From Ian and Family xx
  21. Dear members..our friend Graham..Commo, has informed me of the very sad loss of his Daughter Nicky. Alas his twin Daughter succumbed to her illness and passed away on Boxing Day- 2018. Graham has requested that i post a fitting tribute, together with a piece of music of his and his Daughter Sam's choosing. This, though sad- i consider a great honour. Àra Bàtur..The Boat of Life.
  22. After a hard day watching the snooker..having an Alan hour.
  23. Ayeup..have a look at the thread 508 at Tent City i posted. There were lots of additional photos on this USA veterans site..and the folks were nice to talk to. I refrained from names because sadly most perished.Maybe they were a mixed lot?.i know they performed a Concert at the Council House and The Albert Hall..and frequented a cafe in West Bridgford..that spoilt them with very scarce doughnuts. Edit: Dicks closing line to his Grandson..gets me everytime.
  24. Anyone recall the ACNAC fire on Hungerhill Rd?
  25. My late Mum had some great stories...about those days..a very sad one..on Derby Rd .near Hooleys . A deuce and a half hit a small child..and killed her..the U.S driver was in bits.Also folk in Lenton and Radford had German POW's in for tea of a Sunday evening! They were allowed to walk to town...but could not avail of Public Transport. One evening on Wheeler Gate a couple of German POW's with large pink circles on their greatcoats..got a clattering of a Mams handbag..she ..from Bloomsgrove St..had recieved a telegram the day before of her Sons demise. Couldn't imagine a couple of Nottm squaddies being afforded the luxury of strolling around a German city and munching on pumpernickel...or did they??
