compared with all thecopses outside LH you didn't have many trees near Col

That car was fantastic although I once remember him pulling up behind me while I was running a steeplechase and then speeding up in order to get me to run. My reaction was to sit down and he gave up and gave me a lift back! Always hated steeplechases.

Here's a few more piccies for everyone:

Having a chainsaw is useful...(although hard work as many found out!)


Mongy's aforementioned car, his Saab 96


Ridculously large amounts of trees did this:


This shows just how big the resulting holes in the ground were. The happy looking bloke is Simon Gibbs (MaB/A 83-90)

I came to a Old Blue's Day in 2007 and was amazed to see that the Trees on the Avenue, were the same as I remembered them ----------

I first saw them in 1940 -- 38 years after they were planted ?

So at 20 years old --- you get the point ?
