  11. But for some, more miles than others.
  12. Might not have been Richard. Like I said, was'nt sure. Of course I'm talking about the early to mid 50s. Iv'e done a bit of mileage since then.
  13. @Jill Sparrow, had a look myself, but it's not the same person. Had a read through to page 14 then stopped. Did'nt recognise any names.
