The Spalding Bulb Co decided in 1964 to build a mechanised Tulip header to save on the cost of labour. The machine was built in-house by the Farm Workshop manager Ray Wiles assisted by Harold Wilkinson (of Weston) and myself.
It took us about 4 months and several rebuilds!
I was the the driver and Nev Matson (of Whaplode) the forklift driver.
The pictures were taken on its first outing at Moulton Seas End
