What is the average Pints of Stout per Kilometer do they get?  The crews that is.

 

Serious note, rare and interesting subject.

This could go poorly.

 

And I know no one that says "Patty."

 

And second, if you call a Irish guy "paddy" where I am from, you may have to stand up for it.

 

Just saying.

Nice one, Chieftain.

 

Any chance you're gonna do the Dutch some time?

Thanks Chieftain!  Had some scotch and my cats with me as I watched the video. :)


Two thoughts:

- Was rather disappointing to learn that the Comet was something of a debacle for the Irish

- The Merlin really WOULD have worked in Churchills.  The first Meteors were just refurbished Merlins, basically.  And Mr Fletcher speculated(?) in his book on the Churchill that the Meteor would have driven the Black Prince at 35km/h.

Did they just remove the CVR(T) from service or was this video made a while back?
