Scenes from the lost village of Tyneham. The military moved
everyone out of the village and surrounding farms in the
War to use the area as a rehearsal base for the D-Day landings.
They told everyone that they could return after the war. Somehow
that never happened and the whole area remains as a live firing
range. Now, at the weekends, live firing is suspended and people
are allowed to visit the village.

At a family gathering in north Dorset last week I decided to
go on a little trip through history. My grandfather was an
engineer and right hand man to George Brough of Brough
Superior Motorbikes in Nottingham. One of their clients was
TE Lawrence who, over several years, owned seven Brough
Superiors. Grandad knew him very well so I thought I'd visit
Lawrences grave and his cottage at Clouds Hill just down the
road from Bovington where the Tank Museum is situated.
Lawrences country cottage is very small and in the garden a
wee garage built to house his Brough Superior. I didn't expect to
see one of his motorbikes but was delighted to find one on display
in the Tank Museum along with the amazing display of armoured
Made my day.
