This is the last book I published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of MF in 2008. I was fortunate in that AGCO in the UK decided to give all of their employees a copy to celebrate the occasion and I was invited to the celebration lunches for 600 of their staff. Quite an occasion which was conducted in what was Harry Ferguson's first training centre at Stoneleigh Abbey - now a conference and banqueting centre. For the book I trawled around for a considerable period of time to gather together memories of the founding of MF from former employees. In all I gathered together them from 46 people. Fantastic stories recalling the times, products and general goings on. It was one of my most enjoyable book writing experiences although in this case most of the writing was by the individuals concerned! I simply glued it altogether in a common format. I was also fortunate in finding a treasure trove of photos to support the text.
