    So, of Fount of all Knowledge, tell us the truth:

    A conversation I had with an 'old sweat' (real engineer) on the telephone earlier today reminded me of this article I wrote for Back Street Heroes magazine a couple of years ago, so I thought it worth posting again in the hope that it may raise a smile or two and perhaps even evoke a few fond memories amongst those of us who still remember the pungent yet strangely comforting odour of Mistic Coolant, arc welding and oily boiler suits; from the days when British engineers were amongst the best in the world...

    Feel free to share this article anywhere it may raise a smile (or educate a 'mechanic').

        A misquote by Johnson:

        Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why,

        Theirs but to do and die.
        He was triggered too...
