I am like you Sir Flops all this metric stuff I cannot see it in my minds eye, if you know what I mean. When I was in the fire service we used to use PSI (pounds to the square inch) so usual pressure for a inch branch was 45 psi that the pump was running at. Then they went metric and went to a Bar (what ever that was!!!bar of chocolate???) luckily the gauges on the pump were still marked in PSI and experience you knew what the branch man wanted. If pounds, ounces, feet, inches & yards was good enough for Newton then it is good enough for me. Never mind I suppose we will soon be going over to kilometers instead of miles and that will confuse me completely.
