Screw the  EU and the pig that road in on them.

No use for those ends of the long intestine people.
Always looking for military manuals, Dodge M37 items,books on Berlin Germany, old atlases ( before 1946) , military maps of Scotland. English and Canadian gun parts.

All they have to do is wait. Then say screw the EU, but nope!
I really hope I'm wrong, but doubt it.

Oh these No 8 rifles take me back to being a spotty 13 year old at high school !
forced to do compulsary army cadet training for a couple of weeks every school year, time spent on the school range with these lovely rifles and many hundreds of 22 rounds made the dreary hours of marching and parade practice bearable.
The SLR, M16 & GPMG were ok, but ammo was rationed for those.
The NZ cadet force no 8's were sold off about 10 years ago, and quickly snapped up by collectors, rare to see them come up for sale now.

Spo sad to see the brits will scrap them...........

It has been discussed on another forum and it us in fact a UN protocol that the UK, the EU the rest of the world, and even the USA have signed up to.

This is one law that we cannot blame the EU for.

I'm not trying to blame the EU, I'm saying the U.K. is using that as an excuse.

Ah its a misunderstanding.
Strait 'naners are good because they're fresh. Its only when they're stale the skin dries out & contracts, curving the fruit.
