So... on WoL tonight, the challenge was thrown down to Sharpe....

Can you get that fatboy 110 under the nearby railway bridge.... which, had a road pontoon bridge immediately after it..... :shock:

No problem he says.... (fully expecting to bin it fish style)...

The approach was good....

Could be an interesting way to get an enemy off your tail! :)
