That is indeed one of the many stories to have been told - and why she (XH558) was christened "The Spirit of Great Britain" since it sums up quite nicely, the pure BRITISH BULLDOG SPIRIT of GRIT, DETERMINATION AND DRIVE to succeed against all the odds!

It was written in all the Magazine advertising we did too - and is still being used now!


This posting was a direct reference to the Jersey  Television interview which stated we "had three weeks money left" in my opinion the statement should not have been made...

Generally the Trust is accused of not being open enough! Then when they are, that upsets people too - they really cannot win. At the time they did only have 3 weeks worth of funding remaining. It's since been squeezed a bit further thanks to the Club and a few others contributing. When do you suggest people were told they were almost out of money? Should the Trust have left it to their administrators to tell us?!

Not wishing to sound funny, but we're told about numerous very expensive adverts in many mags/papers etc....  in the several years I've been a Vulcan fanatic, I'm yet to see a single advert for the cause.  Being a relatively skint member of the working class, I'm wondering how many people said adverts actually target, and what publications they appear in?  If I'm on the constant lookout for 558 related ads and can't find any, what about those who are unaware of the current dilemma?

From the 10th Aug. Newsletter :
""we have mounted full-page advertisements in publications such as:

    * Flight International
    * Armed Forces Day Magazines
    * Haymarket Motoring Titles
    * SAGA Magazine
    * Top Gear Magazine
    * Best of British
    * Classic Car Weekly
    * BBC History
""

As some { semi-} joking suggestions were made at the time , maybe adverts / articles would have been better served featuring in the likes of FHM , Loaded , Max Power & Nuts !!  ;)

Bear in mind that Jack Hayward saved us 2 years ago and then shortly afterwards had died, last winter we were saved by an anonymous bequest. Perhaps Saga is the correct magazine .....

Sir Jack isn't dead though, so don't know how light hearted he'd find it! And he saved us in 06, so 4 years ago.

Sort of nackers my point. Sorry Sir Jack if you're reading this although I suspect you're not :-). He stepped down as Wolves President shortly afterwards and I thought I read that he'd died. He's only 87 so will undoubtedly outlive XH558s flying career.

The Sunday Times (News Review) October 3rd has a very good review by Jeremy Clarkson, it should get some good response.

Nice piece on the Help for Heroes appearance in the Warwick/Leamington Courier on 1 October with photographs and details of the current appeal - unfortunately no link to the website provided.
