PSA-FCA could do worse than dig out the drawings for this off the shelf shove a decent sized battery and an electric motor in it and revive the Panhard Brand :-D

What a great start to Christmas Eve!! Well done the FCFers.
My last routine contribution to complete the set starts, as ever, with the crib hand (Good job we finish here!): :)

Have just noticed something small but useful on that Greenwich clock . . . botton r.h. corner . . . just past the "3 inches" . . .

Could it be . . . a bottle opener? :tgif:

I used to drive past that milestone every working day. I used to work a very short stroll from there. :)

Well we missed out on yesterday's element, but it sort of goes together with today's element.

Your mission should you decide to accept it is to provide the FCF faithful with an original picture from your own socket set of the two elements, atomic numbers 23 and 24, in perfect harmony. Extra points for a very large spanner with the said elements boldly displayed.
