Idhe Hawk is indebted to reader Leslie Kirkham who sent in this nostalgic picture recreating life on the open road a few years after the end of the war. Taken during last month's North of England two-day
historic vehicle run, it shows a 1948 Leyland Beaver breasting a hill near Haltwhistle, Northumberland, passing the site of a bloody battle once fought between the Armstrong and Charlton clans. It looks idyllic now.
