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
