    Good News Everbody! Charlie is sold and going to a good home where he will be brought back to his former glory. Due to lock down he has to stay here for a while though. Finn.

I have promised Paul I will keep him updated and will start a build thread when I work out how to post images. Thanks again Paul your a real gent. Kenny

    Cheers Kenny, it was a pleasure both ways. I know he has gone to a good home and you will bring him back to his former glory. Great result all round. Paul.

    I know Charlie, new name needed? Bonnie Prince Charlie? Has gone to a good home. Am looking forward to the build/restoration (No pressure there then) thread. Paul.

    The car will likely always be known as Charlie regardless of what I call it so it’s pretty much stuck with Charlie.

    Big thankyou from down in the Fens. Charlie was named after Pats Dad, who served on MTB's in the Med during WW2. Was wounded and treated in Malta. The Navy then forgot about him and when he was healed he had like a week off. Went down to the Navel base to report in as fit for duty and they basically said, Who are you! He could have sat the rest of the War out! But he did not and went back to serve. The MTB crews, English and German had great respect for each other, as it was a very dangerous posting. When the War ended the German flotilla would only surrender to the most senior British MTB Officer on the Island. They formed up and sailed into Grand Harbour, all flags and pennants flying. Moored up and their most senior Officer stepped off onto the jetty and formally surrendered. Finn.
