    My theory is that they are the same person. They seem to have similar personalities, if A Towering Control was anything to go by. And no, I don't think Mr Bannerman has quite the level of public profile for the Eye just yet, although I wonder if that is the agenda behind all these memorials. Perhaps if he gets his name on more that 150 granite slabs he automatically gets a mention in Funny Old World.

    But dissimilar hair partings, eyebrows and jawline. I'm sure that I could tell them apart in a line-up of jokers

    Now come on chaps, this is getting a bit personal. I will retreat now down my own fall-out shelter.

    On a more serious note, there have been three more marker stones erected in April 2012. These are at:
    Ayr Racecourse
    Errol
    Findo Gask

    And it looks like more lumps of granite will appear at Tealing, Montrose and Balado Bridge over the weekend of 19 & 20 May 2012.

    Whether you like the "stones" or not ,you have to give the man 10 out of 10 for persistence.

    In a way it's good that they are putting one of there so called memorials up at Podington because now everyone will be able to compare there soulless lump of concrete (or plastic or whatever) with the fine memorial that's already in place at the airfield that excellently serves it's true purpose. Some how I think it'll show the Airfield Of Britain Conservation Trust Memorial up for what it actually is.

    Good quality but fairly boring lump of marble, unfortunately sourced from overseas from what I remember?

    Totally agree with your post though, putting one of these identikit "McMorials" next to a decent, existing local one is baffling to say the least.
