RE:Family tractors remembered - gone but not forgoten
I've been ferreting in my old photo files and came up with these two. They are not particularly good but are the only surviving shots of my grandfather's Massey U frame fleet. The fleet comprised over the years a Wallis 20-30, green MH 25, two MH 12-20s, MH green Pacemaker, MH green wide front Challenger on 10 inch rear steels, and MH green Challenger tricycle style with tip toe steels on the rear and without the optional mudgaurds. I remember them all working except the Wallis 20-30 which had been disposed of before my memory took hold.
One of these shots shows me maybe aged 4-5 cranking the green MH 25 and the other shows it at the end of its days with one mudguard rotted away. This would be in the late 1940s. Stewart Eccleston from next door to our farm is in the driving seat on both photos.
