I got some photos at home of that machine working up at the top end of Torquay, back in '91. I'll post them up when I get back.

I think he is living up nr. Exeter now.

YES YOUR CORRECT!!

He had an 870 and a 860 and a mixed fleet of O&k's
I have many O&K pictures but perhaps need to start a new thread as you have slapped my legs once tonight already!!!
