      These guys made up one of three main sprayer teams operating out of the Culloden site. They liked to refer to themselves as the A team (and frequently did!)

    K400 HST 

Volvo F12 Globetrotter 6x2 unit
     Interesting to see the origins of this one and the personalized plate, i believe  K400 also spent time in the yeoman fleet gaining its black livery, before a very brief spell with Thorburn international, i believe its currently in preservation & can be seen in the November 2017 issue of classic truck....

    Hello there from the USA.  Charles Alexander was my grandmother's cousin.  We met when I was young, but lost track of his relatives.  Could any of you put me in contact with his granddaughters Leslie or Caroline Hughes?  I would be so grateful.  Laurie Watson
