SABRE: The Canadair Sabre in RAF Service
SABRE: The Canadair Sabre in RAF Service

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Every aviation enthusiast should have this, 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A super book about a great aeroplane. Value for money. Excellent addition to any aviation library. Perhaps not enough detail about Sabre service from UK bases. Excellent value

3.0 out of 5 stars Good reference work but a tedious read, 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Norman Stone has an excellent grasp of history and its chronology, but his writing style is confusing and at time ungrammatical. Some of his sentences have to be read several times to grasp what it is he is trying to say. Some make no sense at all. Full of typos as well.
A handy book to own for reference, but definitely not a gripping read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixture of the great and not so great, 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Heroes Collection (Audio CD)
There are some interesting tracks, particularly those that show the excellent early work and sound of Hank Marvin with his first Stratocaster, but disc two has many items that have deservedly fallen into oblivion. There are fifty tracks, and twenty five would have been enough. But good value for a fiver.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Tune, 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and easy to use product. Works in any environment, particularly a noisy one, as there is a colour indication when correct note is in tune. How did I ever manage without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Outpourings of a frustrated Blues player, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life: Keith Richards (Paperback)
A well written and amusing account of his life by this capering streak of human gristle, whose ability to survive while enjoying life to the full should not be copied. Richards positive attitude and caustic but informative remarks are a joy after the memoirs of the sad self pitying man called Pete Towshend.
Buy it and laugh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shows how witty the public can be, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent collection of unpublished letters to the Telegraph. I would say that because my letter is one of them!
Quickly delivered. A good gift idea.


Honeysett at Home
Honeysett at Home
by Martin Honeysett
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and hard to obtain book, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Honeysett at Home (Paperback)
An excellent collection of sharp Honeysett cartoon humour. Keenly priced, and in good condition when received. But just like the copy I first had in 1979 it is beginning to disintegrate, with pages coming loose.
This is an inbuilt bookmaking fault, nothing to do with the supplier.
Recommended, but handle with care.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value Flyfishing accessory, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap and cheerful. Three day delivery. Not what I would call a professional accessory, but would be suitable for most. Good value at its level.


Rolson 60750 95 LED Aluminium Torch - color May Vary
Rolson 60750 95 LED Aluminium Torch - color May Vary
Price: 14.10

3.0 out of 5 stars A value for money torch, but poor performance, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is OK for the money, but disappoints with a lack of power that 95 LED would suggest it should have. It emits more of an illuminating diffused glow rather than a powerful beam, and is not very effective outdoors due to lack of such a beam.
Inferior to a halogen bulb torch, but modern devices like LEDs are frequently inferior to older technology.
Good delivery though - three days - but poorly packed. It survived the journey by good fortune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Gadget, 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the most useful things I have ever bought. Modern sloped windscreens are almost impossible to clean inside, and this device makes it a simple task. Just dampen the cloth with methylated spirit, and wipe the windsreen easily with the long handle attached to the cloth pad. Did both our cars in ten minutes. (They say you can dampen with water, but my experience is that if there is a build up of grease and dirt, meths is better)
Good value for money as well. This is now advertised at about 10 plus postage. I paid 5.
Get one, you will use it frequently and have a clear windscreen at all times.
