Wimpey Plant memories

Digger Blogger | 14:04, Thu October 28 2010

I continue to be contacted by fellow ex-employees of Wimpey plant here on the Digger blog.

The latest to get in touch is Colin MacLennan who worked for Wimpey Plant & Transport from 1979-1986 in various locations around the world including Dubai, Oman, Jordon, and The Falklands. Like so many who have written to me, he recalls some great memories of his time with the company and a lot of hard graft in between too!

Colin sends in this amazing photo of a Terex motor scraper being transported across the Oman dessert to another location in a very un-conventional manner in 1981.

It certainly looks a bit top heavy that's for sure; let's hope they got to their destination in one piece.
