There was a thread for this but it seems to be lost somewhere in time...

Anyway, here's a couple more nice ones for Micky D's proposed tool calendar:





Micky D should appreciate these pics of his favorite type of knife.

That's Joanna Lumley for those who don't know.  Best known for her TV stuff like the New Avengers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_Avengers

The pics are from her recent campaign to help the Gurkhas get a better retirement deal.

Its nice to see that campaigning against your own goverment's immoral legislation is still considered a good reason to carry a fixed blade in a public place :D

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

She was a major babe back in the day.

When she was in "The Avengers" - maybe sometime in the late sixties early seventies - she was very hot.  Later on she proved that she could also be very funny, as in "Absolutely Fabulous" which I think was sometime in the nineties?

It has nothing to do with the knife, it is just representative of the Gurkha people and their rights.

Someone might be able to give better details but here's how I understand it.  The Gurkha's serve in the British army and have done since the 19th century when the Empire ruled India and much of the Indian continent.  However they are not regular army, not quite mercenaries either but somewhere in-between.  Here is an extract from wikipedia:

"In July 2006, British authorities granted the right to full British citizenship to all Nepalese and their dependants serving the British army during its stays in Britain's former colonial territories, among them Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong, which entitles them to stay and work in the United Kingdom.  According to the press secretary there are approximately 140,000 eligible to apply.  A recent High Court decision on a test case in London, however, has acknowledged the 'debt of honour' to Gurkhas discharged before 1997, and that immigration cases be reviewed, which could set a precedent for citizenship privileges"

Bold highlight indicates the part that Joanna Lumley was campaigning for.

Thanks to ringzero for posting that. The Gurkha's are a amazing lot.
Mrs Lumley has held up rather well to the ravages of time, imho.
I still prefer Emma Peel....... love the series.

If you REALLY want a major babe from the Avengers, before Miss Lumley, look no farther than Diana Rigg.  By the way, look at her photos from back then, NOT those from the present.

I tell you, Steed never really knew what he had...

So I'm not the only one who remembers Sapphire and Steel.  Scared me at the time, much more than Doctor Who.   I was too young to be watching it really :)
