Stories of Round Timber Haulage
Home > Stories of Round Timber Haulage
Maurice H Saunders
Maurice Sanders spent four years compiling this book relating the stories of some of the characters of the timber trade across the county. It is dedicated to that small but highly skilled band of men and women, particularly during the last world war, who worked all hours and in all weathers, some with loss of limb or even life, to deliver logs to the hungry saws of the land.

When timber imports ceased around 1939, wood became an even more important raw material, the demands of the aircraft and boat building industries alone were phenomenal.

These fascinating stories are illustrated with a profusion of archive black and white photographs, most of which are previously unpublished.

Packed with pictures of Latils, Leylands, Unipoweres, Fodens, E.R.F.ís, Matadors, Douglas and many more in action.
