I would have to agree with Cliff, on a Piaggio P108....
There is no paralell in warfare, to such courage and determination in the face of danger, over so long a period. Such devotion, should never be forgotten.

Hello gents,

I can only go by what details are presented to me, keeping in mind that hey could be typos and or lacking the knowledge of many on this board.
Maybe, I've made a boo boo. Anything is possible and I welcome your feedback.
John
