Default BVWS Bulletin Spring 2021

Arrived this morning.


The last set in the Miniatures article with unknown prototype bears a distinct though not exact resemblance to the Pye P26BQ. Maybe that either passed on its looks to another period set or vice versa?

Default BVWS Spring Bulletin

The Spring edition has just arrived. Packed full of interesting information. A quick look and I see there is a feature on the BBC Outside Broadcast unit and the restoration of MCR21, Meccano Crystal sets and lots more. Lot of reading for later.
My BVWS membership card was in there as well.

John.

Yes, even in the wilds of Cumbria it arrived this morning, so that's bedtime reading sorted for the time being.

Hi,

Cracking bulletin as always.

That fantastic Meccano picture (Fig 30) on page 45 invokes memories of far simpler and enjoyable times without the extreme anxieties caused by modern life in general.

Tim Wander was on BBC Essex Radio Sunday evening talking about early Radio.

Currently, I have a few articles in preparation for hopeful inclusion in the bulletin - just got to finish off the typing up!

Regards
Terry
