I was in training at RAF Cosford and my brother was going to UEA (University of East Anglia) and for once we happened to be at home at the same time. I forget why this was so, but no matter.
Rob asked for a ride to UEA and as it was sorta in the same direction I said sure. He did have a large shipping case, you can see the corner in the picture by the reversing lamp.
Hull had just got its first Self Serve petrol station and all I asked Rob for was to fill up my Austin Champ for the journey.
I parked next to the pump and went into the shop to get stuff for the ride leaving Rob to pump the petrol. I sorta forgot to tell Rob that the Champ had a 45-gallon tank!! I came back and the pump was still going ca-ching, ca-ching… lol
But he paid anyhow. My Champ had a 4 cylinder 3.8 litre multi-grade Rolls Royce engine so it was just enough for the journey.
