  1. My immediate thought was that the truck closest to the camera was a 1933 British Bedford WGH like these two.
  2. Are these your models or is someone else making them as well. (Found on Col's Models.)
  3. Great viewing and a bit of a laugh at times. Only one good shot of an Albion A10 is where the horse drawn wagon comes out onto the road from the farm and he has to stop. Plenty of other identifiable makes as well. What would the Prince Henry Vauxhall car sliding about be worth today?.
  4. A South Australian Light Horseman sitting on the rear wheel of an up turned truck in the Middle East in 1916. What make of vehicle is it? (I don't know, but it is not an Albion A10.)
  5. Looking at the third photo of the Benz engine, it identifies this truck as a Benz as well. The engine is the same. Great clarity in the photos and fantastic record of history.
  6. The young British pilot, Lieutenant Stowew, with his Armstrong-Whitworth FK3 No. 6219, landed in error on the Bulgarian territory in early 1917

  8. WWI Albion A10 wheels on Ebay. www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Y-Type-Cast-Iron-Wheels-From-Early-Petrol-Lorry-Or-Steam-Engine/333045202507?hash=item4d8b0a7e4b%3Ag%3AaQgAAOSwxrJcMfY-&fbclid=IwAR1IhuNdVFBugLbi2GmuHSTljnfxxKfFOgjjo4ulnCijHHblyc0-97ox06k
  9. Spotted these and I think that they are from a Albion A10. www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Y-Type-Cast-Iron-Wheels-From-Early-Petrol-Lorry-Or-Steam-Engine/333045202507?hash=item4d8b0a7e4b%3Ag%3AaQgAAOSwxrJcMfY-&fbclid=IwAR1IhuNdVFBugLbi2GmuHSTljnfxxKfFOgjjo4ulnCijHHblyc0-97ox06k No connection, but I hope they help someone. Regards Rick.
  10. Rick,


    Rod Garnett of the slotted screws!

    Local to me is a chain drive Albion in someone's front yard.

    It's been there at least 15 years.

    If I took some photos and sent them to you could you tell me what model it is?

    I don't have the interest or space to do anything with it but I thought of you as the only one silly enough to care about it.

    Being chain drive it's very early.




  11. Just a few photos off the web.
  12. A friend sent this to me and I thought I would share it. Please watch it. https://www.youtube.com/embed/Wq0X0bwMprQ?feature=player_embedded Regards Rick.
  13. Interestingly, the large tenders shown after the Rolls Royce Armoured Cars are Talbot 15cwt lorrrys.
  14. Vehicles of No. 2 Armoured Car Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS), they are 1914Talbot Armored Cars. Known as the "Admiralty Talbots", these armored cars were among the touring vehicles acquired by the RNAS at the beginning of WW1.
  15. The way I had it explained to me was that the molasses water mix allows a algae to grow and as it need oxygen to live it obtains it from the rust which is as you know is a reddish- or yellowish-brown flaking coating of iron oxide that is formed on iron or steel by oxidation. The algae attacks the rust and survives on the oxygen. What is left is a fine powder of iron in the bottom of the tank and a clean item.
