Reader Feedback

Hi Alan,
           Just a thankyou note for all your work in sending the books (to Australia) etc. They arrived a couple of weeks ago though haven’t had a chance to read them to all the grand kids yet. More inside time when the weather gets colder. If you ever bring out more Davey books please let me know. I’ll always be  David Brown fan for sure.
Thanks again for your help, Cheers, David J.

 

"Davey to the Rescue"

I like this story even more than Waking up Davey. The expressions on the tractors are so convincing.

Lots to see in the illustrations.

 Thankyou2

Details for Mums & Dads

The more well known rival was the Land Rover, and to many the Gipsy looks similar, a copy. Not so though. The engine was derived from the London Taxi and gearbox from medium weight Austin lorry. It was made until 1968 when Leyland took over BMC and promptly stopped production of the Gipsy. This particular Gipsy was of royal origin. It was part of the queen's fleet and as such not taxed. It is now ! It has been my regular transport for 20 years but was rebuilt over 12 years and has occasional use now. Like Davey she is worked now and again to make sure she stays in good condition. She has been extensively repaired to make her safe for road use again after her long rest enforced by a decaying chassis.
