Army Specialist, Rolf Hill, served in Vicenza, Italy ('70-'71) at Caserma Ederly with NATO's HQ, Southern European Task Force (SETAF).  When he returned from his assignment, he discovered a Blackhorse lighter in his household goods.  Rolf, along with his wife Jan, sent me the lighter in the hope that it might find its way back to its owner.

It is now part of K Troop's historical artifacts collection and will be shared with all Blackhorse members and friends at the annual reunions of the 11th ACVVC.

Thank you both for your kindness in sending the lighter.

Me ... today with my vintage {50 years old, restored} go kart - - it'll do 60, so it's not a toy.  Anyone interested in seeing my helmet cam videos can go to www.YouTube.com/RolfP4 or the Vintage Karting Assoc. website: http://www.vkakarting.com/.  The 2012 Schedule will be posted soon.)
