Seems like I need to start a couple of threads.   I cannot claim to know a lot about Buck (Wing Commander Neville Buckle) but if I start off others will no doubt follow.  We were living in Bath where I moved with Old Boot and got married to Gerry.  Buck, of course, only drove a Lambda, a rather scruffy torpedo (?Red) and lived in a lovely cottage in Wiltshire (?) not too far away where we visited once or twice.  It was alleged that he could fix anything on a Lambda with a file and a big copper hammer (know in our house for ever after as a "Buckle" as in "pass the Buckle please").    We moved up to Kendal in 1971 and I was going to go to Torino in Old Boot (then know as F*rting Annie but that is a different tale) but the head was cracked beyond Metalastic.  Buck sent me up a spare head with which I successfully made the trip.  Buck was a big man with balding white hair and a pukka handlebar moustache as befits a WWII pilot.

And usually a pipe in his mouth, I think, somewhere I have a picture of my mum sitting in his Lambda.

This is Buck's Lambda, rather scruffy torpedo, nowadays. After 10 years of restoration.
