Chosc

THE COMMANDO Helicopter Operations Support Cell, usually referred to by the acronym CHOSC, would in time become part of the amalgamated Commando Helicopter Force but back in the late eighties and early nineties it was a small and in many ways independent Royal Navy unit tasked primarily with keeping the helicopter units of 3 Commando Brigade flying. Each winter it deployed to Norway for several months in support of 845 or 846 Naval Squadron Helicopters, either to Tretten or Bardufoss, as part...

Experience

You're handed the keys to the latest high-spec Discovery 4. It's your turn to take the wheel. Now, usually you wouldn't mind, but there's one slight problem. It's pitch black. Ahead of you is 5,000 acres of undulating countryside with 25 miles of track designed to challenge even the most competitive of drivers. The world is silent except for the drumming of your heartbeat. You're nervous. Until you switch on the high-powered Hella roof lights. Suddenly, nature's under a spotlight as you wade...

Feature

The A84 and finally the N10, skirting past Le Mans and getting a glimpse of the famous race circuit. We averaged a couple of hundred miles before stopping for a break, to top-up the fuel tanks, buy more junk food and swap drivers around. Even so we made good time and pulled into Drew's yard in the late afternoon to a very warm welcome. A jovial evening followed where we swapped tales of Land Rover steam engine Munkie lorry misadventures and plotted our activities for the next few days. The main...

Finding

The Freelander 2 2WD marks a new direction for Land Rover - but is it a better one Words by Richard Slreeton. Photography by Land Rover It's not all doom and gloom for Landy fans though as the only two vehicles getting the 2WD treatment, for now, are the Freelander 2 and upcoming Evoque. Essentially these vehicles were always aimed more towards tarmac rather than mud and let's not forget that Land Rover are simply responding to a public demand - if the demand wasn't there, then they never would...

First Impressions

THE MEN FROM Land Rover dropped the Discovery and Sport off early on a Monday morning both HSE spec, both immaculate, both looking pretty huge in the courtyard surroundings of LRM Towers. In a car park that usually plays host to lairy supercars and hot hatches (thanks to our sister titles Evo and Octane), the two cars look pretty sober - the Disco is Stornoway Grey, while the Sport has been finished in Nara Bronze. Which is a kind of dark brownish grey. Richard Streeton is keen to get to know...

General View

A WHITE Ninety CSW is Land Rover's equivalent to legwarmers, a bright red Porsche 911 or a Rubik's cube - it just screams ' 1980s'. This one has retained the side stripes and hasn't really been altered in any way which all adds to the appeal. The bodywork is very straight indeed and the paint itself is fine with a good T-cut it would come up a treat. The galvanised cappings are very nice and tidy, and all three doors - while showing signs of rust - would be easy to tidy up and all open and...

Global

Only for those of us who love to ride the trials, but for those of us who would like to do something in addition to wheeling. We began by offering two afternoon tours to showcase the area- one to the Wintergreen Vineyards and the other to the Devil's Backbone Brewery. While the vineyard didn't get much attention from this Land Rover loving bunch, the tour of the Devil's Backbone Brewery was a blast. I mean, what's not to love about trying out some locally brewed beer with your friends after a...

Was So Mad At That Berk Who Had Sworn That He Had Fixed My

It turns out he had forgotten to do the one at the front offside. Worst of all was when I was a young teenager and I was running a Ford Zephyr. It had a touch of the steering judder and it was a job to keep it in a straight line. So as I was busy I took it to a garage I was recommended to, and asked them to do a full service and pay particular attention to this steering problem. Later when I picked it up late on a Saturday afternoon, I took it for a blast and gave it some stick (don't...

Order Or To View A Full Catalogue Of Back Issues Go To

Ross' 110 has been treated to a new set of tyres. But big expenditure in other areas isn't far away J been an expensive month here on the levels. Despite a relatively low mileage, when our vehicles go out they are called on to work, towing big trailers and load carrying. However, I like to think that they are always maintained in good condition with preventative maintenance and that extra mile to ensure that jobs are tackled before they become a breakdown. First off was Buttercup the 110. In...

Stamping Out Waste

MACHINERY IN the press shop is massive, making it the factory's biggest electricity user. But their efforts to stamp out waste as they stamp body panels has resulted huge savings which have more than paid for the investment to reduce energy use. Senior plant engineer Andy Conlon, who looks after energy usage, explained making sure things were switched off when not in use wasn't as simple as it sounds. They did easy things like documentation recording where all the switches were, but most of the...

Storage search

Dave thought he had found the perfect storage solution for his 110 he hadn't Dave's rear storage solution for the 110 Awhile back now, some of you will remember me prattling on about my 110 and rear storage. As part of the rolling restoration complete re-vamp, I have once again found myself up against this seemingly impossible barrier. Last time I talked about this I had found the perfect solution. It didn't work. When things fail, sit back, have a nice cup of tea and go back to basics. It's a...

Bill Baker

Served as PR chief for Land Rover North America for nearly 20 years, with a stint in the UK for the 50th anniversary of the brand. THERE WAS an article in today's newspaper saying President Barack Obama's efforts to increase fuel economy standards in the US will not necessarily spell doom for large SUVs. While sales of the largest of them have declined in recent years, there was actually a small increase in that segment in 2010. That's because there are still plenty of people who need a...

Long Defender

THE LONGEST Defender that Land Rover builds in the UK has a 127-inch wheelbase and is marketed as the Defender 130. There have been longer ones around the world 129 inches for the Netherlands to get around a tax barrier , 135 inches in Kenya as a safari tour bus , and 147 inches in South Africa again as a safari tour bus . But these are rare. So I presume this one is a locally modified confection. The picture appeared on the web a while ago and caused some consternation because nobody had ever...

Desert Rats

Mobile Land Rover

As in those days they regularly camouflaged the Sea Kings with a tiger camo for Arctic deployments you can see where the idea originated. Essentially the camo scheme involved spraying their NATO Green vehicles overall with a Desert Stone base coat and then adding stripes in RAF Desert Pink, in two coats with the second coat covering less area then the first to give depth. This was actually a very effective scheme for northeast Saudi Arabia and it was more effective than the two-tone Sand and...

A must for any young Land Rover fan this Christmas, Landy is a charmingly illustrated tale by Veronica Lamond of an abandoned Series One rescued for a new life on the farm. But don't take our word for it, here's what nine-year-old Poppy Thomas thinks I thought the illustration of Landy was very neatly presented and the story fixed together very well. The build up to Landy was quite exiting and again very neat and clear. A good book is a book that flows and has clear illustration, I think this...
