Just to add to what Dickie says, of the five crusades against the Hussites at least 2 (I think it's 2, can't be a*sed to go look it up) had a military presence from a number of European countries including England.

I'm not a trader but a couple of tips...

If you've got breakdown cover for another vehicle see if it applies to any vehicle you are travelling in; also some bank accounts offer breakdown cover as a freebie. (Both of these might depend on size of van though :( )
