A Wonderful Spring Day at BRUNTINGTHORPE

I spent the day with Gaz, Jet Morgan, Cluny, Kermit and MOD at Bruntingthorpe for the roll out of the Buccaneer Action Groups newly refurbished XW544.

The weather was great, the company was good and the breakfast was spectacular! ;)

Nice shots. Looks like it was a good day out - I'm just miffed I couldn't get there. Made all the more remarkable by there being people in shirt sleeves at Brunty. :-o

And NOT just any old shirt sleeves, the I.A. Tee and Polo Shirts were well in evidence! ;)

Very nice XP - was hoping to get to this but the beer and curry by the sea at Old Portsmouth won out this time, couldn't really disappoint Mrs H having promised a trip to the seaside.
