Babcock and Wilcox 6 ton Steam Roller YB7976 Toby Featured Print

Babcock and Wilcox 6 ton Steam Roller YB7976 Toby

Babcock and Wilcox 6 ton Steam Roller YB7976 Toby (msn 95/4009). Seen with a 1955 Standard 10 motor car 200CPJ at a 1959 Walford Cross auction. Built in 1925 to the design of Messrs. Clayton & Shuttleworth Ltd. who had been taken over by Babcock & Wilcox in 1924. YB7976 is one of eight delivered to W W Buncombe of Highbridge, Somerset in January 1926, where it worked until 1966. Only five Babcock & Wilcox rollers survive, two 6 ton and three 10 ton models. (Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) began in 1867 with one patent, two friends and an unwavering commitment to reliable and effective innovation. When Stephen Wilcox first avowed that here must be a better way to safely generate power, he and George Babcock responded with the design for the first inherently safe water-tube boiler, and the company was born. This challenge to continuously improve endures today, over 150 years later). Date: 1959

Date: circa 1905

Group of Belgian and British soldiers at Quex Park Featured Print

Group of Belgian and British soldiers at Quex Park

Group of Belgian and British soldiers at Quex Park, with three members of the VAD staff. The Belgian men are wearing civilian clothes. All the British soldiers are in army uniform. Imperial hospital patients wore 'hospital blues' - blue serge jacket and trousers, together with a white shirt and red tie. This could be a gathering of patients about to leave the hospital. A vehicle is in the background, perhaps ready to transport them to the station or to the military hospital at Shorncliffe near Folkestone. The VAD nurse on the left of the photograph is Alice Cobb, a member of the Margate Cobb family. She worked as Quartermaster of the Hospital. The Quex Park VAD Hospital opened on 15 October 1914 and closed on 31 January 1919. The hospital was run by Kent/178, the Birchington Detachment. The Commandant was Hannah Powell-Cotton (1881-1964), wife of Major Percy HG Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) of Quex Park, founder of the Powell-Cotton Museum. Date: 1914
