    Tr4a Hard top

    Thanks for your reply, unfortunately my reply to you has ended up in the buy sell forum attached to your link.. EDIT here it is: Report post Posted 1 hour ago On 4/22/2020 at 2:10 PM, Upriis said: Thanks for posting pictures of your two piece hard top. Our is made of Ali and a shallower shape, it’s interesting to see how it is sealed down the middle joint and around the edges. We have never done anything with ours as we came to the conclusion that it takes up too much luggage room in the back of the car and in the boot ( if, in fact, it actually fits in the boot) Ours would be a good mould from which to make a mould for fibreglass repro s’, however Roger won’t allow that......!!!

    Tr4a Hard top

    Please will you post some pictures of your two piece hard top? We went to the trouble, and great expense, many years ago to have one made but have never bothered to trim it or have it painted etc.. it would be interesting to see how it should be. Thenks in anticipation. Edit. Red and Green are opposite colours and would be a really striking colour combination.

    Are you deliberately trying to be controversial ans stir up bad feeling again in this forum? History is going to repeat itself if you are not carefull. If you are dissatisfied with how the forum is run and organised why not send John Morrison a PM with your thoughts and grumbles. This thread was started by someone who, although controversial in my mind, decided to Enter it in the Social Scene. It has morphed as it rolled along, if the Mods weren’t happy they would have moved it by now. Moderation is best left to the contributors, in my opinion, reasonable people know what is acceptable where......!

    All that effort by John Morrison to get them separated and now you want them combined again, laughable! Start using Alec’s Inn as it should be. Perhaps not enough info’ is coming through that needs stifling Of course it does depend in what section the instigating poster chooses to initiate their post.

    It depends on if it bothers you or not. I just shrug my shoulders and get on with my life. As I have said on here before from my birth I have lived amoungst people from all nations and ethnicities Hillingdon Heath was a multicultural society from at least 1950.

    +1 I will repeat, my skin is not White, I have been asked all my life “where are you from”? Children at junior school used to say your foreign, where are you from? last summer a Wndrush generation Carribean lady, whilst I was waiting in our local chemist, asked me where I was from. Similarly whilst waiting at a bus stop locally and Indian lady asked me where am I from., because my skin is darker than most ENGLISH people. This is why it was me who first brought up the subject of Vitamin D3 some four years ago here on this forum. i worked for 20 years for Hillingdon Council where I was considered White and not included in the Black Womens Meetings but we didn’t ever have White Women's meetings the Afro Caribbean, Muslim, Indian, Asian etc women were welcome to all meetings which were NEVER for women alone. Right, I feel better having got that off my chest.

    I have been saying those exact same words since I was a teenager at school 1963 , when I first became aware of Martin Luther King and it just carried on from there. Horror after horror a world I didn’t like or understand or wish to be a part of and now people are calling me Racist, father forgive them for they know not what they say.

    I think you will find that a forum member asked for your Holocaust photographs to be removed as someone quoted your post and inserted it into a different thread. I also think I know who that person was but again it wasn’t me.

    Yes, I thought after my post that I was too quick to comment and that females were included just to be PC, sorry. What a Bloody rediculous world we are now having to navigate our way around.

    Oi! It wasn’t me. I assume I am the only female on here and I do read ALL the tech stuff ( which I enjoy and mostly understand). I have been known to comment on tech stuff but not since the major changes on this forum.
  12. Derek, once again the Press and News Readers have a lot to answer for.

  14. Have a great Birthday Don, hope to see you over here at Goodwood or even Monaco GP when we are all ‘ let out’ again. Sue & Roger
  15. No not Hounslow Barracks bur North Hyde Barracks Heston/Southall/Hayes. See below from a local historian. Joseph and Francis Embury 1841 Census: Right;-Suzanne re:your note about your grandfather and 'Westbrooks' Cottages, Barracks Yard. Firstly you have your sights set on 'Hounslow Barracks', which although in the early years did come under the Parish of Heston. BUT this is not the Barracks re:your grandfather. You will see from the plan I have posted the area at the end of Southall Lane at North Hyde, was from 1864 St. Mary's Orphanage for Boys, the buildings were original Barrack buildings known as 'His Majesty's Infantry Barracks, North Hyde' in the Parish of Heston. They were built in 1799 on the impending invasion by Napoleon and covered an area right across where Convent Way now is. At it's height their were in excess of 450.000 kegs of gunpowder stored there. It ceased use as a Barracks in 1815 and all the land around was eventually owned by the Westbrook family of brickmakers, all brickfields around there. You will see from the plan the entrance was via Barrack Row, and you will see a short row of cottages along the entrance which were originally Clerk's cottages, but by the time of the Brickfields were occupied by some of the workers, who affectionately referred to them as 'Westbrooks' Cottages, as it was he who owned them. Barrack Yard was at the back. The Westbrook family held a lot of land around Heston i.e. Westbrook House itself, stood where the Rosary School now stands, the Westbrook Memorial Hall at Heston was built by Edward Westbook's widow in his memory and the present Westbrook Rd. is named after them. The brickfields covered a huge area right across to the 'OLD' North Star which once stood just on the eastern edge as you turn into Convent Way out of North Hyde Rd. it was there that the 'Skintlers' (Foremen Brickmakers) collected their wages. The site on the plan was later developed as International Aeradio and BEA and now mainly industrial and the Airlinks Golf Links. Here endeth the history lesson, hope it helps.
  16. Yes good thinking. I was also thinking about this again and there used to be a Barracks very near the location of the pub. I have other Ancestors who were posted to India and other parts of the world from this area, I wonder if Henry Havelock had anything to do with the Barracks or the Regiments who were stationed there. some research on my part required here.
  17. 1984 has not been mentioned yet, so here goes: Quote of the day... “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” From the novel Nineteen Eighty Four - George Orwell, first published in 1949. Interesting times
  18. In Southall, my grandfather, grandmother and an infant child of theirs are buried in Havelock Road Cemetery , Ealing Council have been thinking about renaming this road to Guru Nanak Road because the largest Sikh Temple Gurdwara outside of India is in this Road.. Recent events have added weight to the renaming of the road, however an interestead Local has been investigating and has discovered that The Havelock Arms Public House predates the Road by quite a few years. In 1861 the road used to be called Feeder Lane which was probably a country lane leading to Brickfields and the Grand Junction Canal. The pub was probably where the Brickmakers were paid as this is usual, where there is a Brickfield there is usually a pub which was a pay office. The researcher cannot find a link to connect Major General Sir Henry Havelock to Southall at all. will this statue be the next to go or will they change the name of the road and maybe the Cemetery? The Sihk Community, hopefully will make the right decision.
  19. My son and I volunteered for UK Bio Bank Research into Cov19 as they wanted people related to each other ie mother and son/ father and son etc my son has been accepted for the research but I have not heard anything yet. see attached for some details.

  23. Lucas stuff is 50 years old and still going strong, it’s only a tradition to criticise The Prince of Darkness! i think you may have the wrong end of the stick about, the baking tin and some guy being thoughtful, the car is nothing to do with us. It’s a TR6 or was, this chap also has an MG and a TR4, he is working on all three simultaneously.
