Tonight the two final artistic shots from the Australian MH Sunshine brochure depicting their wartime military manufacturing activities.
One is a shot in the fields of wartime UK with an Australian made anti aircraft gun in the harvest field. The tractor fleet pulling the binders look like 201s? Can anyone be certain? There were definitely 201s sent over here during the war And note the women working the tractors, the binders and manual labouring in the fields. These would be members of the Womens Land Army that was formed during the war in the UK to replace the farm workers who had joined the miltary service. You can see that the binders were Australian made. Thousands of these MH "Sunshine" binders came to the war and probaly more of these survive in the UK than those from Canada. I have one in very good order.
There was a 201 just south of here which I chased some 30 years ago but sadly it had disappeared. Locally it was a much respected and admired tractor and used to spend its winters belt driving threshing sets (thresher plus stationary baler). Many locals remembered it but sadly none knew what had happened to it. The roadside shed where it used to be garaged is still standing.
In the other you can feel the heat in those blast furnaces!
