Memories of Steam Rallying

By Hampshire, J.

This is the long-lost third book by Jack Hampshire on his life describing the author’s involvement with preservation from the mid 1950’s, and the rallies of the 1960’s and 1970’s. It is really a story of rallying two engines – Major Giles Corkran’s unusual Burrell 5hp double crank compound agricultural engine ‘Britannia’ and, after its restoration, covered in detail, Jack’s own Foden steam wagon ‘Peg O My Heart’. Adventures are frequent, and this is a real window into what was arguably the Golden Age of road steam preservation – a time when many of the owners had, like Jack, been involved with steam all their lives. A wonderful read for any lover of road steam, highly amusing and full of great characters from the time.
