We had a trip out to East Yorkshire today and collected this 1908 Singer. It is believed to have been converted to a lorry for war work in Aberdeenshire during WWI but we only have documentation going

I found the picture of the big crane. I am almost sure that I saved it from this forum but I don't know who posted it first.  Regards Marcel

This is the sort of crane you want !  I am sure somebody will know what it is based upon .   Richard Peskett.

A wartime period Velie has turned up in Lithuania of all places. It looks to be in good condition but the owner thinks it is a White apparently. Many of these US built trucks were used by the French and a smaller number by the US Signal Corps. After the end of WW1 the Baltic states descended into a war with Russia and used numerous British and French trucks. I guess that this is left over from that conflict.

A pal of mine has turned up this engine. Said to be a marine engine but of otherwise unknown provenance. Can anyone identify it please? It is a tee-head, is fitted with a clutch and looks to be of great war era to me.

Cylinder bore must be around the 3" mark so perhaps a 10hp engine? Your thoughts would be much appreciated.
