Don't worry, Neil, you can look forward to receiving a Mention in Despatches! smile

Apart from that, you had better be ready for some (more) "me too" appeals for your lists from other users of the forum. You know, your mates!

Meanwhile, take your pick!

But see here for the real Blue Peter!

Quote:
When the Blue Peter flag is flown (apart from the letter P in a signal string), the following meanings are generally intended:-

In harbour:- "All persons should report on board as the vessel is about to proceed to sea."

At sea it may be used by fishing vessels to mean:- "My nets have come fast upon an obstruction."

As you will find when you look into the origins of most things useful, the ICS was a British invention. Necessity being the Mother of ... and all that good stuff!

A supply in the NHS is an absolute neccessity

You'll probably need four. Don't forget that she will want to hide one away as a spare, "just in case"! smile

For the first time in many years I have heard about tools I might actually buy if I saw them:-

Tite-Reach Extension Wrenches. smile

I wonder if Santa will remember me this year.

I probably need a Speed-Square too. It has to be a Swanson, of course. smile

Invented by Albert Swanson in 1925.
