From New to Vintage

Posted in Farm on Tuesday 25th September 2018 at 11:16am

On 28th May 1948 Miles’s father registered the Field Marshall, Series 2, Mark 1 for the road, it was brand new. On 30th July 2018 after 8 months in the workshop the newly restored Field Marshall, now 60 years old, has been paraded for the vintage tractor enthusiasts to view at a couple of local shows. Our own very local show is Widecombe Fair which was on 11th September this year. Miles joined the parade of vintage tractors and implements in the main ring showing the visitors the progression through the ages of hay making equipment. Our Field Marshall was pulling a trailed Bamford mower (note the tower of Widecombe Church in the background also known as The Cathedral of the Moor).
