Dick Hampton's 637's in Stoke

Post #1 by kopite » Fri Dec 10, 2010 9:45 pm

A couple of old pictures from 1971 (I think) of Dick Hamptons 637 scrapers. Lived in a caravan parked on a farm close to the job hence my wife in the seat of a 637. I was driving an old D8 and box stripping topsoil so never got near the motor scrapers but I remember an Indian or Pakistani man who was on one of the 637's anyone else remember him?

Hi again Haz. His name was Karam singh gida banalia better known as Singh. I worked with him on the m5 at Gloucester in 68 69 then on the Kenilworth by pass.He had his caravan next to mine, and he shared his amazing currys with me. He worked for Le tournau in America for a few years.I still have a beutiful belt buckle from Le tournau he was presented with.He gave it to me because he said I was his good friend.
