Ditto, watching re runs of the Sweeney on ITV4, actually as I sit here typing this it's on. Bish bash bosh he's chasing the blaggers again. John Thaw as Inspector Morse is brilliant too.

Believe it or not, I actually used to understand what he said!! I suppose that comes of having a father from Ayrshire, a Glaswegian brother-in-law and a brother who served in the HLI.

Johnny Gage & Roy DeSoto on Squad 51.

 

Inspiration from my youth that inspired me to head for where I am now. I actually touched the real Squad last year in Los Angeles, it was quite emotional for a middle aged bloke!

Where in Ayrshire was your father from John? I lived for some time in Saltcoats.

He was born in a small village near Beith called Barmill. There used to be a station on the St. Enoch to Troon line called Lugton. We used to change there and get the Beith train and get off at Barmill. The line was on a curve in the station which lent over so much that the station master used to have to bring a box out so that passengers could get off of the train. Happy days.

@Bullbasket It's a small world :D My father lives in Gateside just a stone's throw away from Barrmill. It's a very long time since there was a station at Lugton.

It certainly is.

I was told that even St. Enoch has closed. Another chunk of childhood gone. The last time I was in Barmill was about 40 years ago. I stood on the road bridge, looking down on what was left of the station......just a platform, no tracks, no buildings. I've been told that it's all gone now and it's been built upon. They say you should never go back...sad, but true.

Cat in his "Dwyane Dibley" guise from earlier series of Red Dwarf.....

 

Still makes me smile when I think about some of his more memorable lines.

 

EG: "Suck my thermos! You think I like being the Duke of Dork?"

 

Classic stuff....
