Renovated 1947 Duffield Sentinel Lorry comes back home July 11, 2016

GWW 190 is a Sentinel DV 4/4 truck built in 1947

Originally owned new by John Smiths Brewery it was bought in 1959 by Duffields and was one of the first in the UK to be fitted with bulk blowing equipment. It worked delivering feed until 1968.

It was sold for £40 to the uncle of the eventual restorer and worked on his farm in Bedfordshire during harvest for the next 20 years and then stood in a barn for over 20 years before returning to Norfolk to be restored .

It has been completely restored over the past 6 years by Stephen Peck and his family.

The lorry was driven by his father who used to work for Duffields in the 1960s!
