Good Evening All.
Another two chances...then I am turning in.
I'm turning now folks, I can't keep my eyes open much longer, G'Night All.
A clue, TOWIE.
Budworth Hall Ongar Essex Budworth
Looks like a good call JB
john bunyan, Well Done, High Street and Budworth Hall, Ongar.
john bunyan, go on, admit it, it was my fantastically, subtle cryptic clue that helped you ;o}}
Thanks for TOWIE but a) I do not watch it, b) I was typing at the time!
That area was an old stamping ground in the mid '50's. I do like your clues, though.
Totally irrelevant story about the name Ongar.
"Ongar" was the airborne torpedo world's equivalent of TSR2.
An all singing all dancing weapon, well ahead of its time (50s), and years in advance of any rival system.
In my opinion we didn't get anywhere near the same level of sophistication until Stingray in the 80s..
Cancelled during development to save money (now where have I heard that before?).
It was called Ongar because Ongar was the last station on the tube line, and it was supposed to be the end of the line for airborne torpedo development.
It very nearly was for we then spent twenty years buying licences from the US (Mk44, Mk46), and lost all our engineering and design expertise.
I think that was the Mk 24 Tigerfish? See Tigerfish
I heard from a sub tiffy, maybe wrongly, that the S/M Conqueror deceided to use Mk 8's rather than the less reliable Mk 24's to sink the Belgrano?
john bunyan, hell's teeth old pal, I wouldn't watch that kind of rubbish if you paid me - I was referring to "I can't keep my eyes open much longer" - longer/ongar, yup, I told you it was bad ;o}
