It took a bit of time, but the penny has dropped........ or should that be 'The Eagle Has Landed' :)

Yes well done Bobins, as well as getting the correct answer, you have stemmed my tide of irrelevant connected facts!

You may be interested in this which I came across in my meanderings around the classic auctions. It's a former West Sussex Fire Brigade Series III Landrover (109) with 19,000 miles on the clock, and no reserve courtesy of Brightwells May 15th 2019. Spent most of its working life around Selsey.

I'll have to ask my mate if he ever drove that Fire Brigade LandRover as he was many years in the fire service around here :)

Whats the link between Charlestown (Cornwall) and Mapledurham (Oxfordshire) :?:
Irrelevant fact number 2
Anyone remember Hawkwind?
Well guess what, Alan Arthurs, who toured with Hawkwind for 10 years, and was responsible for many of their album covers, as well as their stage sets, is now based near Charlestown in Cornwall. Because "Alan does not do social media, computers or the internet" he sells his work through the Atishoo Gallery in Charlestown
As for Hawkwind, they are having a 50th Anniversary tour this year! and doing Glastonbury.

Not for their music but as customers in my shop. :-D "Returning to England, the band went to Clearwell Castle to rehearse," My shop and garage business was at Clearwell.
