“BREWING giant Thwaites will play its part in military history this summer after it was announced it would sponsor a landmark flight of Canada’s only airworthy Lancaster Bomber Bomber in its flight to the UK.
The Avro Lancaster Bomber, owned by the Canadian Heritage Warplane Museum, will depart from its base in Ontario on August 4, for a month-long commemorative tour.”
I am trying to pull together two lists and would welcome input for these
I am trying to pull together a running list of vehicles in brewery liveries (I guess related industries such as Malt and Hops would be useful as well). This could be historical vehicles in museums and public or private collections, e.g. the Shepherd Neame vehicles, the Mew Langton lorry on the Isle of Wight, etc., or interesting current vehicles, e.g. the Hogs Back motorcycle. I wasn’t planning to include current fleets of the major breweries, simply because of the volume of data, but perhaps that is of interest to some?
Brewery related steam engines
I have also started a list of steam engines and would welcome entries for this – both those in breweries such as Hook Norton and Shepherd Neame, and any now in museums or other collections
All entries would be much appreciated. Once we have a reasonable list I would offer these for inclusion in the Newsletter and the web site to be built upon
