I hate to ask a foolish question, but I cannot figure out what the 2 items in the upper right and lower left of the david brown sheild\logo are. They look like red and white bolls of cotton.

In short, they are roses. Since David Browns were made in the region made famous by the "War of the Roses," (1455-1487) in which two neighboring Lords were warring, and each used a rose as their symbol in battle, one used the white rose, one used red.

Yes CJ you are exactly right. In the 1960s i used to sell David Brown tractos here in the UK and i will tell you an amusing story about the DB badge. My fellow salesman was a Welsh lad and one night we called at a pub (SALOON) for a drink and the lass behind the bar noticed the DB badge on his tie and she asked what it represented. My friend told her it was the badge of the Welch free army and DB was the initials of Di and Bladwin the two leaders. Di and Bladwin being Welsh names. MJ

Sounds like some of the same things we used to pull. I had a friend in the U.S. Air Force who had a Russian sounding name, used to tell women in bars he was a Russian Exchange Pilot (this was 1987).

Today's Featured Article - What Price Enthusiasm? - by Anthony West. Quite frankly, for some time now restorers like myself have become more and more concerned about the rapid increase in the prices of old farm machines here in England. There is now a growing market for "As found" machines. Which as machines get rarer, has found the birth of a new industry....one of the "procurement agent". These agents appropriate as much old machinery as possible then inflate prices at auctions. So at what price enthiusiasm? We are now seeing poor machines which 3 years ago ma ... [Read Article]
