During his escapades in ‘Checkmate, Number 6 broke an aerial off one of the taxis, he needed it to make an aerial for the radio transmitter the Rook had constructed. So what was an aerial doing on the taxi, when radios are not permitted in The Village? I don’t recall seeing a radio in either the taxis driven by Number 6 or Number 8. Perhaps there were no radios, that the Mini-Mokes came with aerials already built into them, a radio could then be fitted into the Mini-Moke if required. Well its one explanation.
Be seeing you
