On the subject of the harness, and in fear of been labelled some type of idiot, while I know its new and will be excellently maintained there have been a few instances of them failing to release in some powerboat incidents. While not expecting Ted to ruin all your hard work but perhaps one of the more foolproof lever type for testing and then those beauties for display?

I knew the harness would get people talking! Ours works beautifully, and that's it.

Did you get an original radio to fit?
We did. Back in the Hapless lottery Failure days we got a load of grief from a journalist who was convinced there was a conspiracy afoot involving the BBC and loads of money we weren't getting but he thought we were. He pestered for info using endless FOI requests until literally no one would talk to him. So he rang me to ask why and I just told him. He was a monumental pain in the arse and no one could stand him - that any info he did obtain he wouldn't put to good use so he could go forth. He called me childish and hung up. A week later he called me to ask if what I'd said was true, I said it was so he called me childish again and hung up a second time. The third time he called was to say he knew some military re-enactment types and could get us exactly the right radio, which he proceeded to do, I assume as an act of atonement. He keeps in touch sporadically and he's OK these days

We could fit a spanking new harness then hope the rest of the 1954/66 Cold War gubbins that was wet for three and a half decades and marginal even before that holds together and continues to function. You know, sometimes a bit of danger is exciting and worth the risk...

Will the radio be used or will a modern handheld be used?

We'll have modern coms- the old radio is just for looks.
