wilson1949 Field Marshall Mark 11 Series 2 no. 7748


The 1949 Field Marshall was made by the company Marshall, Son & Co in Lincolnshire. The first tractor it made was simply named the Field-Marshall, made from 1930 to 1957. Marshall MP6 replaced the initial model a year before the company halted production of the Field-Marshall. The 1949 Field Marshall is part of the Series 2 model. These tractors were available at six and nine miles per hour gearboxes. Later on, the Series 3 Field-Marshall exceeded this specs at 12 miles per hour. The 1949 Field Marshall was part picture7of the tractors made by the company that embodied various improvements to their classic design. This was because of the demand for more powerful tractors. In a way, it was an answer to the decline in demand of such machinery. The changes made an impact, needless to say.


The Field-Marshall tractors were actually used as the model for yet another iconic tractor—the Fowler Crawler. Marshall, Sons & Co. actually had a connection with Fowler—something resulted to the creation of a Track Marshall, a tractor under the Fowler brand. Later on, the Field Marshall tractors had electric starters, although that came later on. Obviously, these tractors were used mainly for agricultural purposes.



I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
