That's a really cool story!

Paulk, thank you for posting it on here.

I sure saw those images on the net since they were NR-related but haven't read the article.

Yep sure did 

You blokes call them flip flops, we call them thongs or pluggers, Kiwis call them jandles ???

 

And pluggers were and still very common foot wear among a lot of working class people as standard foot ware 

I was in them today and have spent most of my working life in them

I have some very hip Brazilian Havaianas, everyone wears them to work in too... it'd take some time for me to get used to them. Hurts my toe crack. My mom calls them "tongs" .... silent 'h'... idk why... chinelo is what they call them in Brazil.

They would stop me from being able to do 50% of my work lol. Half the day I'm driving, other half I'm mixing and wheelbarrowing/raking concrete. When I'm not doing that I'm welding or an a roof. Boots every day, sun up to sun down.

Question for you Paul:   Is the John Victor Ehret mentioned in the story above, the same Jack Ehret who was renowned for racing Vincent motorbikes, who died 2001? And did he get an A.O. medal?
