After seeing the NVA kit in the first two photos I was desperately searching for NVA in all of the others. I thought it was some sort of NVA-themed "Where's Wally," until I realised that Wally was actually sitting in front of the screen, in my living room. :roll:

Great idea. We'll have to go back to The Black Bull to plant them, though. Oh, well...

That's not a table, but a very early, wooden, example of a power bank.

I wasn't sure if this photo shoot was to publicise NVA gear or an excuse for downing real ale and pub grub :mrgreen:
