A blog about my interest in all things military, wargaming and last but not least my military vehicle adventures.
That's a great story. "The veterans all wanted to climb in and have a drive. These guys are all in their mid- to late 80s!" Lol! I've met plenty of vets like this, its almost like their experience has helped them stay young in spirit, even if their body are now failing them.
I was out in the truck in just before X-Mas and we stopped by a local garden centre. An oldish guy, who must have been in his early 80s made a bee-line for us straight away, and started talking about how he'd driven this sort of vehicle, and owned a Diamond T just after the war. The wife left us, went off shopping, came back, and I was still there with him. He was on constant transmit mode bless him :) A very interesting chap he was :)
