Visit to the Combined Forces Military Museum, Maldon, 11 January 2009
The day started for me with a rather apprehensive drive along the A12 from Colchester to Chelmsford. I’d only got the TR7 back from the garage the day before and given its recent track record you will understand the apprehension!
After finishing the tour of the museum we set off for The Queens Head in Tolleshunt D’Arcy for a very tasty lunch.
All in all it was a very enjoyable day, with over 40 members joining us. There was one slight hiccup with the 7 – the driver’s headlamp refused to pop up. As it wasn’t properly dark I could see well enough to drive home on the sidelights. As a new headlamp motor is on the pricey side, the headlamp is currently wound up manually, but at least it’s driveable, and I’m thoroughly enjoying having it back again and can’t wait for the summer.
