"In the late 60s, early 70s, I would spend all weekend
with one of my dad’s best mates. He had the job of ploughing all the
fields around Bodiam Castle as he was an Agricultural Contractor. His
name was Mick Nicolas (Icklevitch) from Salehurst
and had a big Alsatian dog called Guinness that never left his side. He
hired a large Blue 4 wheel drive tractor that had big wheels all round
called a Northrop (looked like a Ford 5000) and pulled a 4 furrow blue
plough, This size tractor was very unusual
at the time.
I was hoping that someone took a photo of him in
his tractor or of the tractor on its own at the time as I would love a
copy of any pictures to add to my collection and for my memories.
