I'm afraid mine doesn't come from anything Lotus but from railways, it uses the name of the first of one of the most famous classes of locos ever built, the A4's. For those that don't know what I'm talking about I'm sure you've heard of 'Mallard' well that's an A4. All comes from my interest in railways that goes back to the early 1950's.

Bet you wish you hadn't asked?!!

My surname is Roskill, my nickname has often been Rozzer, so that's as far as I have to go....unfortunately in some parts of the world a rozzer is a perjorative for the police - I should say I am certainly NOT in the police force :)

Always late to the party with stuff like this but mine comes from an imagination failure at the time of registering. :lol: It didn't seem that important at the time but I have wondered from time to time whether I should change it to the name I use on a number of other forums if for no other reason than being able to remember who I am. It's a good job the computer remembers. :roll:
