Power Of The Past Rally 2003

Once again this was an excellent working Rally with something for everyone. This year there was a number of "Living Vans" on show as well as the usual working displays of thrashing wood cutting etc with Steam. There was a nice selection of Stationary engines this year as well as a large number of working tractors and horticultural implements, all in all a really worthwhile Rally for the general public to attend.

A very nice 1925 3hp Amanco. This is a petrol paraffin model driving a Climax No 2 pump owned by Paul Arlidge from Maldon. This is an unusual 1915 Bentall 7-9hp engine owned by J Golding from Stowupland.

Hartop Lister D and Sludge pump Lister Orchard spray set Lister A

Here is Dave Craigie's 1934 Lister D driving a Liner no 3 Sludge pump. Dave is from Reydon. This is close to my heart as I have one myself. This is a 1941 Lister D driving an H2 pump used as an orchard sprayer. This is owned by M Kendall from Halesworth This was not as program but it looks like a Tank cooled Lister A driving a Godwin pump.

Ruston and Hornsby ZPR Stickney Thrashing Demo Petter S
A very nice 1930 Ruston & Hornsby ZPR 1.25hp driving its onboard Pump. This is owned by K Miller from Bacton. I have photographed this engine before but it is worth a second look. This is a 1914 3hp Stickney owned by S Lindsay from Ickleford A very good Thrashing demonstration This was a big Petter S owned by Bill Kemball who owns the land that the Rally took place on.
Hummer Working radio set Saw Bench Tank
Always wanted one of these, an American Hummer. However at nearly 8 feet wide, they are a bit impractical over here. This is Dave King with his authentic Army radio station complete with 27ft mast Another great working display of a saw bench. These guys were having fun with their tank on the assult course.
