I knew this had to be yet another one of amazing Eddies, the minister for transport pictures.
This is one of the best for ages that Eddie as sent in and Im sure all the praise it will get will be fully deserved.~
I remember that Herbie use to keep some bantam chicken in one of the lower storage cupboards of this van

What a shame, sad to see this in such a bad state. Maybe your picture will encourage someone to bring it back to life.

Good one, Eddie!


Comment by JJP on 4th November 2016 at 10:29
Thanks Edward, what a great reminder of years long gone. Restoration !! surely someone perhaps a member of the Silcock family could bring this beautiful home back to life, I do hope so !!!. I can still see the old Scammell ex army lorry pulling this around along with the trailer for the Noah's Ark ride, we called it the Cock's " DO YOU WANT GO FASTER" oh the screams, where did it all go eh !.

Wish I had the cash but more importantly a place to put if. On eBay wouldn't last a few days. Restored , I,m with you JJP Thanks Eddie, super picture.

I remember this looking pristine when it was out on the fairs, such a shame to see it like this.

At least it's still here and has a chance.
