Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

When I put this question up I was looking to see if S0 was unique in being the only single letter plus zero number plate in Scotland.... Quite right, S0 is the numberplate on Edinburgh Council's official car, this goes back a fair time, possibly as long ago as 1903 when car registrations were first ...

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Wonderful suggestions, I wish it was lenticular galaxies, but it isn't; a lot more mundane.
If you see S0, you might also see E's LP.

Re: The benefits of bright clothing

I do find that my all black gear stands out a little too much in snow conditions and have purchased an ex-marines off-white arctic warfare smock to wear, so I that will blend into the next whiteout I encounter :lol: On a slightly more serious note, it doesn't really make much difference what colour ...

No, nothing to do with covid, the pandemic or vaccinations.

Nothing to do with dollars. Strangely, if you are searching the internet you might need to go to Wales!

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Credit to Rohan for putting the answer into my head, but I don't seem to know much about the obscure posers used recently so I will take the crumbs when they come my way.

Why is S0 unique? Or is it?

Re: So how busy was it?

Loch Lochy M's on Saturday (17.04). About 10 cars.

Re: Map Brain Teaser

I thought that jmarkb would be the first to get this correct, and I'm glad that this has created some interest. The NLS maps are a great resource, but I still like to collect old paper maps. The one I took this information from was 1:25,000 first series sheet NT16 Balerno, which appears to have been...

Re: Map Brain Teaser

No takers as yet, but always pleased when Tim takes an interest. As a map is involved you would be correct in assuming that units of area are involved.

Map Brain Teaser

Looking at an old Ordnance Survey map today I found information in the margin that I hadn't noticed before: Can you tell me the scale of the map and the units used and which of these three choices is correct: a) 1= 99.396 b) 1= 99.639 c) 1= 99.936 further clues to come if necessary
