Me wearing one of your t-shirts in front of our P-51. Cheers!.

Some interesting info re the P-51.  The original "Swamp Fox" P-51 was named and flown by a then 21yo Lt Will Foard who was with the 364FS, 357FG flying out of Leiston England. It was scrapped in 1946.  Our  P-51 was delivered to the US Army Air Force in May 1945 and never left the States.  We painted it to honor Will. Will grew up in South Carolina where we have a local hero from a dust up in the 1770s between us Colonials and the British. Col Francis Marion was a specialist in asymmetrical warfare and was pursued by Col Banastre Tarleton, who gave Marion the moniker "Swamp Fox". Will thought it would be funny/ironic to have Swamp Fox fighting out of England since y'all apparently still consider Marion a war criminal, as we do Tarleton.

Dear Doreen, I can’t thank you enough for your genuine friendliness, help & professional service. You went above and beyond to secure me the best overseas delivery options on some very large and heavy spanners. You were only too happy to assist me with fast answers all my many questions. Abbots web page is the best I’ve come across, finding everything I wanted quickly & navigation a breeze. A convenient conversion system on the web page from pounds to AU dollars gave me an instant knowledge of real cost. After supplying me a written quotation by email, you even adjusted the web page with some special shipping services just for me. What more could I ask? By offering PayPal as a means of payment, I felt very comfortable about purchasing over the net. Although I only required three very large (near impossible to find) spanners, my emails were answered so quickly I felt like a VIP valued customer. The fact that you stock the well known and respected King Dick range of spanners, which include so many of the larger sizes those other brands no longer want to talk about, is a real plus for any apprentice wishing to purchase a full kit of tools in the one matching brand. By trade I'm a fully qualified auto-motive mechanical and electrical engineer and am now a retired proprietor of a very large workshop and engine reconditioning service previously operated in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Thanks to my computer and dubious internet skills at searching, I fortunately found Abbots Tools web page advertising King Dick, the highest quality in spanners, and at exceptionally low prices. I now intend to replace my extensive kit of Sidchrome Whitworth, Metric & AF tools with the King Dick range purchased from you. I simply want to have the best and most comprehensive range so I can eventually hand them on to my two boys with pride. To anyone requiring a spanner, whether professional or DIY’er, I can most highly recommend Doreen and “Abbots Tools” for service quality and price. Even with shipping included, the prices were less than half of what I was quoted for the exact same in Australia. I do look forward to future purchases and hereby authorise the use of my name and email by Abbots Tools should anyone doubt my sincerity and gratitude.  My very best regards, William M. Palmer.
