I haven't heard that term for a long time. In the fifties, a buddy of my dad's had an Austin FX3 like this stock picture it was based on the British Taxi of the time. It seemed enormous to me as a 9 year old.
Nice looking woodie as we would call that car in the states and Canada...as you would know, now living in the USA.

Back in the '40's and '50's...in my extended family we had a British cars as our regular drivers. My parents of course had the three Austins, one after the other...from about '49 to '55. Then an uncle who lived in Vancouver BC had a Standard Vanguard delivery van. H had a trucking business and this is what he started with. He and my aunt drove it from Vancouver...over the Rockies and across the prairie on summer to visit with our family.

At that time he had two vehicles...the Standard Vanguard sedan delivery for his business and a Harley Davidson big twin . He eventually had a about a 6 truck fleet...2 -5 ton trucks.

Another uncle was a Major in the Canadian Arm (Civil Engineer) and he was stationed in England for over a year getting additional military training. Whlie there he drove a late '40's Triumph Roadster....kind of a sports car, I believe.

I have one English vehicle. My '67 Matchless 750 G15 CS Scrambler motorcycle. Made at the Plumstead Road, London factory.

The T54 snorkel provided the air for the engine and for the crew. If the engine stalled under water they would have one or two chances the restart. If that failed the escape route was to open the driverís hatch, at the front. The driver would escape. Then the other crew, in order, commander, gunner and loader would each need to follow, swimming out through the position where each one before them had gone. If any one got caught they and those who were meant to follow would drown.
If I was the tank commander I would ensure I was out first !! If things got real difficult and it was a question of drowning or getting out as fast as you can...I wouldn't be surprised if it would be a Three Stooges type of exit...threee guys trying to get out one door at the same time.

Back bacon is made from the loin, located near the back. I've made it several times and to me it's pretty much just ham.
Side bacon is from the belly. I think it's called streaky bacon in the UK.
I like the smell of side or streaky bacon, but I've never cared as much for the eating. A bit too much fat for me. But I do like Back or Canadian bacon.

One of my favourite meats is meat loaf. My wife makes ours out of ground beef and ground pork. I prefer these main ingredients in meat loaf, rather tnah just ground beef.

I'm not fussy. Streaky bacon or back bacon, it all works for me. So long as the word "bacon" is in there somewhere, I'm happy. How a bout a bacon dress?

Mrs Racer makes meatloaf surprise for me. Ground beef, pork sausage, diced onion and garlic, chopped black olives, chopped green olives (the ones with pimento in them), chunks of cheddar cheese, chunks of mozzarella cheese, and a few other things, topped with barbecue sauce rather than catsup.

Mmmmm . . . . . . . . . tasty!

Meatloaf surprise.

We use that term too, but usually on the second day.

BTW, I like that recipe. Looks really tasty. I would forgo the black olives...for some reason black olives have never grabbed me. But green olives...I love them.

Yep...how 'bout that bacon dress. I first thought of a better rejoinder...but I kept it to myself.

It was a good one too...and I mean a real good one.

But I considered, PF is a family forum......

In other news. Top of the dome very nearly done. But I've run out of fire cement and courier won't get here with more of the stuff until probably Thursday. Dang. Just short too.

I also sprayed everything that needs spraying this weekend: Roundup (glyphosate) for weeds in the driveway and garden beds and paths, Banvine (dicamba) for weeds in the lawn and sulphur for the fruit trees and grape vines and roses.
