espite the turmoil of a few years ago when its then parent company, Daf, plunged into financial turmoil, Leyland Trucks has reached its proud centenary intact. To mark the occasion a video and booklet have been produced which should bring pleasure to Leyland fans everywhere. The video is the better bet of the two as it has been produced with Leyland's blessing and is presented from the British Commercial Vehicle Museum in Leyland. As well as vintage footage it includes interviews with people associated with Leyland, including Lord Stokes.
Did you know the company was . once the largest '''' producer in the west? The vide is available from Vintage World at £15.70: phone 01772 451011.
The booklet, at just 36 pages, is a somewhat brief, if useful, chronological history of the company. All the pictures, apart from the cover, are black and white and their reproduction lacks clarity. However, at E2.95 it's not going to break the bank balance and might make a neat stocking filler later in the year. Its available from Malvern House Publications on 0113 268 6685
