I noticed a pill box marked on your track plan.

I assume this is something left over from WW2,
either for 'Dad's Army',
or the defense of the home island,
had Operation Sea Lion actually occurred in 1940 ?

Any chance you could show us a photo of that ?

To help visitors to the blog
there is a simple searchable label device
slap bang right on the front page.

Just a few seconds of looking
would have revealed the word 'defence'
and it would take you, surprisingly to this

War in Dorset

OK ?

Hi

A rather sad day,
the unavoidable conversation occurred last night about ‘what happens if’,
and so the layout will appear on eBay tonight offered at £1.00,
in the hope that some kind soul will be attracted to the giveaway price.

We just want to see it go to a good home and not be a burden on my passing.
To put into context, two of the three original friends have passed,
and I had a cardiac episode in ‘19 which led to a triple bypass,
at 70+ options are limited.


On the plus, the tiny diorama cum micro,
is proving to be a simple but enjoyable diversion,
and something that isn’t ‘the elephant in the room’,
hopefully it will be gone and the workshop will be (almost) empty.
