CLASSIC LAND ROVERS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME IN NORTHERN IRELAND!
I was bemused by Calum Brown’s Our Classics article of 16 March. Since the 1970s, military Land Rovers in Northern Ireland have worn protective armour. They do not look remotely like the canvas-topped Series I and III he describes as ‘two distinct military looking Land Rovers’. So running to the border through the heartland of Londonderry and Ballymena was the cause of tension throughout the entire journey? He should be congratulated and thankful that he completed such a dangerous journey safely!
In my opinion the Series Is will draw attention wherever they are seen, simply because they are so rare. Calum’s colleagues’ assurances were right and he was safe just like all other Land Rover visitors to Northern Ireland. All classic Land Rovers are welcome in Northern Ireland. Don’t be put off by the impressions in the article – that was just sensationalism to beef up an uneventful journey! Wesley Lamont, Carrickfergus, Co Antrim
