    Re: Is this it?

    Keeping well BruceT, retirement suits me. Very few farmers out this way who would be considering a new or an old Defender right about now. Other than myself the others all belong to local towns folk...

    Well not a lot to be honest, certainly not from a DEFF/ DAFF point of view that's for sure.
