That’s my 70-year-old skiing mate, Frank Rothwell, who rowed the Atlantic single-handedly last Christmas and raised GBP 1.1 million for Alzheimer’s research along the way! A fantastic, larger-than-life character, who’s always coming up with another plan or challenge. With his Defender’s propulsion (steam) finally solved, I’ll ask him about the leaks next time I see him.
Whilst on the subject: on a recent trip to Milan, I came across a couple of soldiers in full camouflage battle dress guarding a building. I was surprised that they had obviously arrived in the Defender parked nearby. Here’s a photo of the vehicle (ex-soldiers). It was only afterwards, that I noticed something conspicuous placed under the vehicle... it soon dawned that Milan’s roads authority was sick-and-tired of cleaning up after the Guardia di Finanza
