Staying on the engineering side of things a sine bar was always needed, I made mine at croydon collage in the very early 80s and stil have it in my toolbox, alas never used along with my 0 to 25 mic .
Ditto, although I never got mine assembled, I think I'm missing a few bits. Same with an adjustable height stand/scribing block.



As for log books, I found mine the other day, and couldn't for the life of me figure out how to use them to do trig, despite still remembering, Two Old Aunts Sat On High Chairs At Home.

Back on subject... running after a bus as it left the bus stop and jumping on board.

Won't happen again on two fronts... I can't run, and no more Routemasters!

That would be disappointing, but maybe there are two sides to that story?

Whatever, Hargreaves was a broadcasting legend for many of us...no autocue for him.

People considering every England match to be a significant event, particularly if a Palace player was involved.

Can you imagine England playing the World Champions Germany at Wembley 30 years ago with most of us being pretty indifferent that England's man-of-the-match was nominally a Palace player? Another symptom of the relentless dumbing down of international football.

And yet another debut cap awarded to a player I'd never even heard of too. You see test cricket teams gathering on the pitch before a match so a respected veteran player can ceremonially award the debutant his first cap. Nowadays they're just tossed about like a training bib. Who do you think gave Martin Kelly his cap? Bobby Zamora?

I did a YTS course and worked with Ade Mafe's mum, Comfort. She told me a story of when he missed a bus and ran and caught it at the next stop. The people on board were amazed he ran faster than the bus. These days he would have just hit the back of it. And not had an Oyster
