For Want of a Nail (1629)
"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost;
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost;
For want of a horse, the rider was lost;
For want of a rider, the battle was lost;
For want of a battle, the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail."

Sadly that is the case and unfortunately there will always be those who have good reasons not to be able to attend. Equally there will be those who could attand but who choose not to. Their choice of course but they miss a good show.
My day was spent at the Stafford exhibition where there were also some good layouts including John Stocks' Kettlewell flying the P4 flag with some very fine Midland Railway stock and tomorrow will be the time me to visit Scaleforum.
