And small furry creatures from alpha centauri were real small furry creatures from alpha centauri...

Back to the naustalgia.......

WW2 PIPE LINE
You may have already known about this, but I didn't. In spite of watching films About WW II
And the European theatre, I never thought to wonder how all the military vehicles were
supplied with fuel. They sure couldn't just stop at the corner station and fill up their tank
or jeep. I found this film fascinating.
If the link doesn't work for you ...scroll down to the YouTube image below

I believe you can get asimilar arrangement for twin verados............

Also have a look at Operation Pluto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I read about Operation Pluto when I was at Shanklin (IOW).
