A nice gift for a Follyfan? £19.95 anyone?

https://www.royalmint.com/our-coins/ranges/stamp-and-coin-series/q-branch-brilliant-uncirculated-coin-cover/

It contains a James Bond £5 coin, a set of James Bond stamps and a feature on 'Q' with some photos and quotes from Desmond Llewellyn.

Long live Follyfoot!

Thanks for posting LC  >41<

I like the photograph of the autogyro flanked by 007 and Q.

For myself, “Little Nellie” remains THE gadget of the 007 franchise and the scene in which she defends her honour with great success - THE action sequence!

WC Ken Wallis, who piloted “Little Nellie” in “You Only Live Twice” lived in Norfolk, about 10 miles from Dereham...   :)

Well done for finding this LC.  I have never really been a Bond fan (even though Desmond was in it) but Mr Loopy may be interested.

Those shorts are definitely something the Colonel would wear, don't you think!
