    Default The Medway 1938. BFI Film .

    Found by Chris Murr.
    Source to Sea.
    Actually the trip appears to have been down in reverse order to narrative.

    Battleships and Sunderlands its all there.

    Instead of going to Bluewater or Lakeside why not suggest to your dear wife that she finds her galoshes and discovers the source of the Medway, mid winter appears to be best.

    Suspect a fairly well off couple ? ..especially with that car.Interesting to watch filling up with fuel and the heavenly absence of "other" motorists on rural roads.
    ......and difficult to age that couple seem 25-30 going on 50 ?
    Everybody appears so old

    I wondered if the flying boat seen afloat (odd - portholes for passengers and a tarpaulin over what might be a forward turret under construction?) might be “Maia”? - but she is not.

    Went to Duxford over weekend with grandsprogs, a Sunderland in main hall.
    Did not realise nuclear bombs were so small,visions of Fat Man etc.
    Interesting about Broken Arrow.
    Also confirmed missed absolutely nothing by never flying on Concorde,claustrophobic or what
