    Bush hat suggestions?

    My son has a British Army issue desert pattern DPM hat from Silverman's. Its a few years old now and still going strong. I'm not sure how back pocket friendly it would be though.

    Edge of London countryside

    Oxleas and Jack Wood get a mega thumbs up from me. I haven't been to Eltham Park for years, nay decades! A wonderful place for having a little bit of a forage for chestnuts during the Autumn. A terrific view over London to the west and a stones throw from Greenwich!

    All Britains Fish

    Ah! Ruffe, greedy little guzzlers. We used to catch plenty when ledgering in Canbury Gardens on The Thames as kids. Related to Perch I think.

    Praktica Highlander, Alder and Hydan?

    :) I bought a Praktica BC1 thirty plus years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed using it! Tinkering with Cokin filters too. Happy memories:)

    Cookery book

    This thread has just reminded me of a website that I used to enjoy a few years ago. Happily it's still around, godecookery.com. Getting back to the good old printed page, Annette Hope's Londoners Larder although I'm not entirely sure if its a cook or history book. A pleasing combination of both...

    Bushcraft by bus.

    I have a neighbour who's a bus driver, he's what you might call a regular guy. I get the impression that he's rather stressed by some of the behaviour of some of his passengers. Being a regular bus user myself I can see where he's coming from. Most of the drivers on my routes are a cheery...

    Opening cans

    Similar in appearance perhaps, memory can play tricks of course but I remember it being far easier to use and of superior quality than one of those cheap and tacky products available from some so called surplus stores. I've used both.

    SPAM and other foods - any hate? :)

    It was simply referred to as jelly. I wouldn't relish tucking into a bowl now though!

    Opening cans

    My father served in the BAOR during the late fifties and into the very early sixties. One of the pieces of kit he kept was a very small can opener, matt black and very effective. I think it was used for opening rations in the field. Sadly I no longer have it. Considering the size and simplicity...

    SPAM and other foods - any hate? :)

    No Janne, it was packets of lurid coloured gelatine. Think of jelly, trifle and children's party's. We used to chew it straight from the packets:(

    SPAM and other foods - any hate? :)

    I'm quite partial to the occasional tin of spam , a store cupboard essential! Likewise the simple pleasure of knocking up a corned beef hash using the leftover bits and pieces of veg from the fridge. Incidentally, does anyone else remember buying packets of raw jelly and munching on it as a...

    Reminiscing.

    At risk of being horribly unseasonable, this brings back memories of Blue Peter. Two wire hangers, lashed together crosswise, whatever little lids you could beg steal or borrow for candle holders and embellish with tinsel. One homemade advent chandelier! No sticky back plastic involved, probably...
