Maidenhead has the nickname Maidendead for obvious reasons.
Not all of blighty is like that

I don't think I've ever returned a warranty card on anything.

Clever this guy saving the letter after all these years.

Commodore Uk ( Manufacturing) was in Corby then Scotland.

Maidenhead was "Head office".

And Carl is right .. Not a lot there either !!

If you were there the night of the "There is no hurricane coming" storm it was October 16th 1987

The great Storm

Half our fleet of wagons were stuck in Sheerness (just down the road from Maidenhead)

I had a miraculous escape. I drove a ERF truck with a large Tautliner trailer. I only carried plastic bottles, so large volume, no weight. (3 tonnes). In fact, you could liken the trailer to a big sail !!)

I got up very early that mornng to deliver to Buxton, in the derbyshire dales (Seldon research).

It was extremely gusty, but I appeared to be "running with it" and I was soon protected by the granite rockface north of Derby. (Matlock).

I pulled into the delivery point and parked close to the side of the building and waited for the workforce to arrive (it was 05:30).

I was amazed to see thousands upon thousands of empty milk bottles come rolling down the road smashing on the way... Must've been a dairy bottling plant nearby.

The building I was next to was having extension done to it and the wind was getting behind the unfinshed galvanised panelling and ripping it off in great sheets.

I remembered Cyclone Tracy at this point. People were cut in half bysheets of corrugated iron just like this in Darwin.

I stayed in my cab.

at 06:30 the workforce slowly trickled in and were dismayed to see I was there (lazy b*stards thought they were gonna sit on their asses and do nothing).

We unloaded out of the backdoors of my trailer... they then promptly pissed off and left me trying to tie my curtains back on my own.

That task took me two hours !!

On reaching the M1 south I was amazed at the utter devastation on the very road I had driven up just a few hours earlier.

Trucks... Cars towing caravans, 4x4 pulling horse boxes... were all on their sides.

In one night Mother Nature caused more damage to Englands infrastructure than Hitler caused in the Whole bombing campaign of UK.

I had a lucky escape.

Wow! Sounds like you did just escape. Didn't know you had such storms over there.

I think the Greens would say ...

"Thats the Point - we NEVER used to"!!

(Shape of things to come?)
