The SD Enthusiasts' Club Newsletter

   Volume 2 Issue 43                     Autumn 2021

 In Publication since 2003.

From the Editor.

In this issue two former employees share their memories of working at S&D. In the first of a two part account Keith Rogers looks back to 1967 (Page 3.) whilst Barrie Woods has reached part 4 of his reminiscences (Page 4.) A further article relates to apprentices and there is a feature about the Revopak. Along with news of existing vehicles, the sadness of the closure of S&D and a look forward to celebrating the centenary of the founding of the company, we have the usual mixed batch of items.
