V is the 22nd letter in the ISO basic Latin alphabet..The letter V comes from the Semitic letter Waw, as do the modern letters F, U, W, and Y. .In Greek, the letter upsilon 'Υ' was adapted from waw to represent, at first, the vowel [u] as in "moon". This was later fronted to [y], the front rounded vowel spelled 'ΓΌ' in German..In Roman numerals, the letter 'V' is used to represent the number 5.. It was used because it resembled the convention of counting by notches carved in wood, with every 5th notch double-cut to form a 'V'..RRH Portreath is a Remote Radar Head operated by the Royal Air Force. It is situated at Nancekuke Common on the clifftops to the north of Portreath beach and southwest of Porthtowan in Cornwall. Its radar (housed in a fibre glass or golf ball protective dome) provides long-range coverage of the south western approaches to the UK..Production of VX agent was intended mainly for laboratory test purposes, but also to validate plant designs and optimise chemical processes for potential mass-production. However, full-scale mass-production of VX agent never took place. In the late 1950s, the chemical weapons production plant at Nancekuke was mothballed, but was maintained through the 1960s and 1970s in a state whereby production of chemical weapons could easily re-commence if required..In 2000 it was reported that former workers at the Nancekuke base had died as a result of exposure to nerve gas, and the matter was raised in the Houses of Parliament.. It was alleged by the Independent that toxic materials had been dumped in nearby mineshafts..The CDE buildings were demolished in 1979-1980, and the RAF re-opened the site as a manned radar station in October 1980, a Control and Reporting Post for UK Air Surveillance...'all take a good look at this lump of shit. Remember what it looks like..And the next son of a bitch I catch copping "V"s in the bush, I'm personally gonna take an interest in seeing him suffer. I shit you not..Doc, tag him and bag him..And that goes for you, shit-for-brains. You don't sleep on no foooking ambush!..
