Grove r, I suspect you might be able to help me out and I welcome the responses of others of you out there.
I will be driving my new '48 M in the parade here this Thursday and I was wondering if it would be proper to somehow also display my (deleted) patch? I want to display my pride while at the same time not flaunting my membership in the very exclusive (deleted) fraternity.

Of course it's wise to check with Grove first, but it's kinda a top secret thing isn't it? You could always play FBI and wear it under another coat - or 2, just to be on the safe side - i'd make it a mackinaw and just flash it to the real special ones in the crowd. "Was that what i thought it was? Wow!"

Who knows - could be worth some free cotton candy if ya flash it right. "Uh oh - that's evidence, kid - i'll have to take it in"

Tell them there ain't no free lunch -- why kid the poor souls? :)

D.C. SIR did'st I insert My duly shod lowest appendage in My mouth by making totally inaproperative reccomendations to Friend Less?
Forgive Me kind Sir I knew not what dastardly deed I did do.

LESS by all means disregard tha prior reccomandations . I beg humble pardon from all past presant'n future deleters,I bow My head in shame....

Les not being a charter member even by proxy,marriage or an illicit affair I hesitate to offer advice in this matter as applys to prescribed terms of proper protocol. However, as a properly pedigreed parliamentarian I present this as a voice from the floor.

Thats a big 10-4 Hogman! When I said there was no strings attached, just a loose thread, or two, meant that that little piece of cloth was YOURS!! Like Clem always says, "Wear your [DELETE], patch with pride"!! And, thank you for the post, I am truly honoured!!! As to protocol, there are certain obligations required as to the position, location, and background necessary to truly enhance the memory of such a remarkable machine, but, unfortunately, Clem is the keeper of the records pertaining to these matters, my roll is limited to upgrade changes amd memorabilia. This truly taxes a failing memory. It would be a truly humbling experience to be there to cheer on such a remarkable part of our history. Lester, carry the torch with dignity and pride! [DELETER]s unite! Have a gooder, R.E.L.

Well grove r, I covered the correct protocol over on the Talers site. But since this is an important point I will repeat: The fabled (DELETED) patch should be worn on shirts, jackets and tunics on the left side and over the heart. The patch should not be attached to vehicles, but wood, plastic or metal replicas may be affixed to vehicles in a tasteful manner.

Grover I shall forever be greatful!!!!! Does this mean I can cease My shameful groveling at D.C.'s feet pleading for forgiveness???That I can once more hold My head high and speak proudly of that wondrus machine? AW TA BE ALIVE ONCE MORE !!!!

Easy, big fella, don't be too harsh with yerself, so easy to fall by the wayside with so many wanting a "Piece of the action", Ours is not to be humble, but to go where no man has gone before, [heard that somewhere}.......We must shamelessly stand before ridicule, to open the eyes and the hearts of disbelievers every where, to surmount all negativety in our just search for the truth, to stand on the pinicle of righteous dignity and honour, in this, Les's hour of need, may he go forth amoung the parade masses, boldly displaying the blazened trophy of triumph for all to see and be reveered gosh that was beautiful......can I save that? Have a gooder,R.E.L.
