The picture above was taken on Liverpool Road from my jalopy.....I had a Morris Minor Convertible when I was at Burtonwood. Had to give it away when transferred to Brize Norton. We had a million laughs with that old car. Battery was always low and many a time I had to push it, then jump in, catch it in gear, to get it running.
We changed the brakes on it at the hobby shop. Car wouldn't of the guys pulled us with his car...funniest sight you could see...The front bumper and parking light were pulled right off the car. All we could see was the pull car going away with about 15 feet of rope and the bumper from my car.
Following that episode, I was stopped in town for not having the driving (parking) lights on. After the warning from the policeman, I would hang a military ' L' shaped torch (flashlight) on the front of the car.
