Oh, that's where I heard the name. I have a photo of a Field Marshall tractor, I think. Your thresher looks quite a bit different than mine...much more color for one thing.
joyfotos ~ Yes Joy ~ I'm wondering whether or not Field Marshall Tractors were originally made by Marshall ~ I would expect so ~ I think the colour on this machine whilst faded looks pretty good really ~ I have seen far more weathered examples ~ I doubt that the wheels are original ~

I still remember that kind of threshing-machines working on the land and/or in the huge farm-sheds. Very noisy and huge clouds of dust.... good old times!
Wonderful photo Nick! Great to see it again!
Warm greetings from Ria
RiaM ~ Well done Ria ~ me too they would come in harvest time to the fields besides our house and a traction engine would drive them with a large belt ~ hard times but good times too ~ warmest wishes ~ nick
