For those of us that are the spectrum it will be compulsory pursuit distraction.

Still trying to figure out how they got that aircraft carrier to float!

It's a mystery(on) to me....

I used to watch this in black & white so can anybody here confirm if he (or his uniform) is actually red?

As an aside, I finally mangaged to persuade my Dad to buy a colour TV when I pointed out that I was the only in my school watching Multicoloured Swapshop in back & white!

Parts are- I had a CS jigsaw puzzle when I was much younger, it had a blue/grey SPV and CS stood alongside it ,outfit was I think both scarlet and black (think that later became a film involving priests etc)

Watching all those TV antique/collectable shows I reckon if my parents had retained all the toys I had over the years I would now be very wealthy (my collection of Action Man outfits alone possibly paying for a holiday)

As it is none of my toys were retained.

I do have a very vague recollection of an dressing up outfit (made from plastic) of either CS or a Thunderbird, but no photographic proof exists (though there is proof of me dressed as Noddy for the Whipman Play)

No - it's scarlet. All the field officers had uniforms in their code-name colours. Col White, Lt Green, Captains Blue, Magenta, Ochre, Indigo, the unfortunate Brown, Grey, Orange, Yellow and, of course, Black.

All the Angels wore white uniforms.

My saying red and black is wrong, the black looks more blue/grey.
