Newly restored 1916 WD Albion A10 in the UK

Recommended Posts

That's some lovely timber you have used there, Mark. What other things did you have to make? Looks like a new radiator and bonnet too.

 

Well done. It's great to see another one out!

Superb restoration and photos.

 

Lets hope there are WW1 events up at Beamish in the next few years.

The stage could not be better!

There are several a year already courtesy of the Durham Pals living history group although we haven't had a WW1 motor vehicle there yet - if you fancy coming let me know and i'll put you in touch with the head of the group;

Thanks for the invite,

 

Will Try to get up one weekend if the weather looks fine, rear wheel brakes and all that means in the wet- its just about 100 miles each way so 3 hrs on the road, somewhat less than the 274 miles one way to Stowe Maries which took most of a day!

Here are some pictures of the other Albion which was in the background in the Beamish photographs. Just completed the London to Brighton yesterday:

The Albion A 10 model is very well written up in the Automobile Engineer, Vol. 8 1918 pages 46 to 53 and Vol. 9 1919 pages 68 to 71. Picture of front end herewith

Richard. Do you happen to know of any similar pictures of Leyland class ST or T? A Leyland chassis in my possession has a front axle of similar design to the Albion A10. We think the design was very "unusual" for Leyland. It is very puzzling. Robert

If you would like to view Mark's Albion very soon, then I'm thrilled to announce that it will be coming to our show Wartime in the Vale, Evesham on the 22 & 23 of June & we intend to pair it up with 'The Garrisons' First World War 18pdr gun, so I think that will be another great photo opportunity.

 

Loved that B&W pic at Beamish.

Stunning. What shows will you be at this year? Hopefully Beamish with the Durham Pals at some point?
