Having acted on suggestions for improvements – at least those that were physically possible and legally acceptable – the 2013 Andy Tiernan calendar has an entirely new look...
It unfolds, so that the unfortunate machines depicted each fill an entire A4 sheet, thus rendering oil leaks, dents, rust patches and mismatched parts clearly visible. The lower part has individual days outlined, providing enough room to note down award ceremonies, hospital appointments, court appearances and other important engagements. The six illustrations, three in colour (yes, a grey Bantam Major does count as full colour) feature decidedly unglamorous utility BSAs, ranging from a 1938 Model B de-luxe to an ex-Home Office B31.
A set of clear hole reinforcers is supplied absolutely free which, when fitted, help prevent the calendar tearing itself free from any supporting hook or nail.
Still at the same price as last year, copies of this calendar can be obtained from Andy Tiernan, The Old Railway Station, Station Rd, Framlingham, Woodbridge, Suffolk IP13 9EE by sending a cheque for £5 made payable to East Anglian Air Ambulance, plus £1.10 in stamps (for UK 2nd class postage).
