Captain Scarlet is indestructable, you are not. Remember this, do not try to imitate him.

1st, 5th and last are super Nigel. I`m not into 'ghosts' and strip lighting but I would have thought you might now be able to shout over to the chaps on last chance and ask them if they could oblige and stand still for a couple of minutes.....only joking of course. :wink:

Take care and wrap up....its getting cold on those late one`s.

Regards, Ian

Total cr*p as usual Nigel,i really dont know why you bother sometimes..

On a more serious note i think you have now indoctrinated me to the point where father christmas must bring me something made by Manfrotto or Giottos............. :worship: Quality work as always.

Indeed, but she was nice enough to come back and apologize as well as admit that she was incorrect in her actions in the first place... Politeness works both ways when dealing with these situations, it offends me when some people are rude and verbally abusive to security personnel as it gets us all a bad name (although I admit that I have sworn at one of them after I was subjected to a torrent of swear words once before)

Many thanks for the comments too!

No, it was just an overzealous chap who wrongly assumed where we were (outside the base fence) was 'out of bounds' until he was corrected by the MODplod.
