ISTR it's no longer a legal requirement, though, so you can bridge across
the relay position with a short wire with 2 male blades. ISTR it goes

dim dip came and went, in some strange fashion, as a legal requirement,
although my S-reg minibus has it.

my opinions are just that
If all be true that I do think, There are five reasons we should drink;
Good wine, a friend, or being dry, Or lest we should be by and by;
Or any other reason why. - Henry Aldrich (1647 - 1710)
