William the Tiger Moth

Saw the strangest thing at the Calais to Dover ferry yesterday coming back from my business meeting in Dordrecht; a car with a complete Tiger Moth engine in the back. Unfortunately, the car owner had just shut the boot lid by the time I got my mobile phone out to take a snap.

You can just see the engine in the rear window and the Tiger Moth decal next to the number plate (if you click to expand the photo).

I haven't been on a ferry for ages, so it was a novel experience.

It's amazing to think William the Conqueror did almost the same trip in 1066 and invaded England with just 7,000 troops. the equivalent of two high season ferries, and became king of England.
