Some more great photos Craig. The Weatherill looks like a demo at a show? I'll guess an L66.

What is the last Dozer pic?

Is that a JCB 4 with an 805?

Brilliant pics.Craig thank you. :bow:
Pete, the last dozer is a Fowler Challenger 3 circa 1952/4
It's the Leyland 600 engine version, you can tell from the position of the exhaust, and it has Bray dozing equipment.
