The return of the Charlie

Having considered the gradient profile of the D&E, the eastward climb to Dorchester would have been challenging rising some 200’ from Bridport whilst the westward climb out of Bridport towards Broadoak and the Marshwood Vale would have been equally difficult. 

A Charlie quietly simmering at Dorchester in the late '40s

Perhaps justification for some help with an allocation to Dorchester 71C, maybe a couple of Charlies in the late ‘40s-early ‘50s?


The only words are 'Wow and Double Wow', this is a truly stunning Q1 from Crownline. It will need a decoder and a motor service over.
