I have posted a link to this video on The P.E. Quiz thread but I thought it worth posting here too as a general interest video for the non quizzers among you:

I have said previously that I can't abide dancing, it all just looks too stupid for words. This is a good example and together with the facial expressions is truly horrible.

It does have one slightly saving grace though.

Thanks Steve I saw there was on the same twitter page a link to the work of Cold War Steve! I was laughing out loud at his bedside montage posted on Oct 3rd, a few posts down the page.

THe Nissen Hut has been mentioned many times on the OTCL. Bobins pic in the background on the Electric Vehicles Spotting thread reminded me of a Nissen style hut. Random seach brought up this vid by the forrestry commission of an installation in Dalby Forest to commemorate their centenary in 2019, and to celebrate the role of the Nissen Hut Villages which housed the forestry workers responsible for planting the forest by hand.

One of those on this day things, back in 1967 the Queen Officially opened the Tyne Tunnel

Liked the commentator bigging it up
"The largest diameter underground link ever built in Britain using the compressed air method"

For those of you watching in Black and White the Queen is the one in the red
