Burtonlass, it is my profile signature, it was one of the sayings that my Drill Instructor in training used. He came from the Midlands and this was his opening/parting remark to us nods on each and every occasion, the only thing that changed was the volume. Total nutter! :thumright:
I did'nt know your brother, but I drink in the Wessie, so I've probably spoen to him at some time. Everybody speaks of him with a great deal of affection. You have my condolences.
