    Re the Norton manual, I must have had a copy available but can't remember reading it ;)

    What I do remember however is a gaffe I made in my early days as Tech Corporal when I was still very green in reading spare parts manuals.

    The REME Sgt attached to "A" Sqn 4th QOH had asked me to order 2 sets of Bogie bearings and I evidently miss-read read the part number. in the manual. The consequence was that one day a lorry turned up in Monfalcone with 2 complete Bogies !.

    I was too embarrassed to admit my mistake, took delivery and re-ordered the correct parts.

    For ever after the Bogies were humped around italy as a constant reminder to me to check my requisition orders before I sent them !
