I've never consumed it, and I've assumed that it is similar to Eau de vie or grappa.

What is going over Vic falls today, fell as rain somewhere in the Congo/Zambia area weeks ago. Some of that rainfall surely fell in Angola and is draining towards Bots.

Re: A4 V2 Rocket

I once saw a Valiant do a RATO at Marham.

The angle of attack was 'all wrong'! As the a/c lifted almost vertically.

It also returned with black and burnt, anti radiation high speed finish.

As my 89 year old father said, regarding the empty shelves in his local supermarket, "at least in the war we had ration books".
And for 7 years after the war!

I took my Ration Book with me when I took the Queens Shilling in 1952.
