Good for you finding out family history.

I am appalled at the big holes in our family history. Plenty of photos with no names or dates on.

Mrs Vís uncle passed away recently. He was a veteran of the fierce w2 fighting on the Western Fronts. Irish guards tank division. We talked to him at length about his experiences. He must have had PTSD and villagers shunned him for being odd. Her other uncle had an easy war repairing locos behind the front.

My dad said only recently  one of my uncles had Pstd and he was sent to Norway after the war to pick bilberries to get over it.

My dad has his dadís pip , squeak and wilfred medals , which he proudly wears each armed forces day. Cant be many in he country still doing that. When he dies , I hope one of his grandchildren takes all his  medals on board rather than selling them.

The relevant military museums are a great source of info and a sobering day out
Mum, brother and me decided to have Dad buried wearing his medals.

If Reagan had carried on with the Star Wars programme they could have downed it quite easily.  ???

Thanks again. It arrived all right, is now fitted and functioning normally. It's a great relief not to have the annoying message popping up.
The xenon beam is only the dipped beam, it hardly seems worth all that fuss. My other CDX 2.5 petrol estate, same year but earlier model, does not have the xenon dipped beam, just the old twin filament bulbs. Same main beams.


That was cheap.
the 3 cable ties I put on mine was cheaper  ;D
Snap  :D

First Omega I've ever seen with back seats showing wear ;D

Such a shame that, being the rarest of rare colours, finding a replacement front wing and boot lid will be difficult...
That would be the bloated overweight local politicians and their equally bloated wives. :y
