& Terry Street have written:- “Hope you are well we love receiving
your quarterly SD news letters. We have sad news that Eileen De
la Mare passed away on the 10th March 2018 after a short illness.
When she worked at SD she was Eileen Hill and was in the Accounts
department with us for many years, we meet for coffee once a month with
other SD employees and she will be sadly missed by us. Thanks again for
your hard work Pam & Terry Street.
We offer our condolences to Eileen’s family.
Bob Bowker a former SD apprentice has written:-
the week end I was in Hitchin to attend an Old Boys reunion at my old
school which went off well. On my return I went via the Codicote Road,
passing the place where my brother had a business, out in open
countryside, which has alongside it a massive Car and Lorry dump. [Rush
Green Motors?] I noticed on passing the dump the top of a mast which I
knew could be a SD Fork Truck Fork Truck so turned round and took the
I remember working on this model all those
years ago when I was an Apprentice in the works. I'm sure from the
state of it It's been in the dump for years. It's in a bit of a state
but basically all there. Would you think anybody may like to do a
restoration job on it?
This looks to me like a Model 82 Freightlifter. Editor.
