Please explain process for uploading photos
If you are NOT an AccessNorton VIP member:

Use a photo hosting site (many people use imagur).

Upload photos to the host site.

Open two windows - one for AccessNorton, one for your photo host site (after all, that's what Windows is for)

Use the host site's facility to display your photo then right-click on it to "copy image address"

Switch to AccessNorton window, within a new or existing message, place your cursor where you want the photo to appear, right click and select "paste"

That should do it. You can paste multiple images within the same post/reply...

Looks as though it has annular discharge pipes as well !! :)
They're to keep the noise down. Did ask the guy if they'd let it off on Nov 5th... Alas not :-(
There is a tenuous Norton link here in as much as the Bloodhound's ramjet propulsion was developed by a team working under Beatrice Shilling, pre-war Norton rider and tuner...

What SAM missile is this please?
I thought it was a Bloodhound, Bernhard, but it may well be an English Electric Thunderbird. I'm assuming they only have the one, but it used to be blue and white. Not sure why they'd repaint it, though?
(I should have read the plaque!)
I'll go for SAM Smith... as it could be one or the other :)

I too thpught Bloodhound until I looked closer.
As I don't keep up with the armed forces and their latest toys, I find it a mystery.

200 mile day out in Essex and Suffolk, UK. Lunch on the coast. Weather was kind, for a change this year. Bike was faultless. A perfect day.

Here is a pic of my 850 Commando/Featherbed, have owned since new and did the conversion to the Featherbed back in the early 80s, its now showing its age but it still goes great and has been very reliable to me for the 46 years I have owned it, my hotrod.
