Great picture Bill. Have a read of the comment I put on the Reeds Ford D Artic picture earlier today. Ray.

Bill, I am pleased that you got my message. Yes, Denis was a
gentleman, and a gentle man. I scanned and saved the piece
from th`Observer just in case you didn't get to see it. Regards, Ray.

Gimme a Leyland any day than that foreign muck! I hated driving the Volvo's. That was - when we could get them to start!

That's that sorted then, Jed can take the Leyland, Ray, Bill, and me will draw straws for the Volvo, the Scania and the M.A.N.....See you at The Hollies Jed, how many sugars mate?.

Hi Jed comment about Volvo.Im pretty sure from reading Ray and Ozy comments re trucks in general that they have liked Leyland Trucks so perhaps Jed would kindly put up some of the Leyland trucks he has driven as we can enjoy them as we just enjoy trucks in general itís in the blood Jed if you can understand that and speaking for myself Iím sure I will not in anyway criticise your contribution

To all you Real Truckers out their Ive noticed Jed Ďs comments to quite a few contributors to these Wigan sites and I can only say donít hold your breath while waiting for his photos because the man plainly doesnít have any idea abour the haulage industry I would dare say he canít identify the model of the Leyland truck on the Redlands tiles contribution come on Jed give the answers to engine/ gearbox and for how long did this model run before being replaced .
