Marshall 75th Anniversary Celebrations!

Posted by Chris Graham on 21st February 2020

This year there will be Marshal 75th anniversary celebrations up and down the land as the Marshall Club marks the introduction of the Series 1 Field Marshall tractor. The club was initially set up as  The Field Marshall Club, in 1988, by Peter Anderson and Wally Hawkins, but it now covers all the products made by Marshalls of Gainsborough, from 1848 to 1998, as well as the crawler tractors built by Fowlers of Leeds, from the Gyrotiller to the Challenger 33.

It’s a friendly organisation, that’s dedicated to helping its members and providing news, inspirational restoration stories and historical articles in its A4 quarterly magazine. Anyone wishing to join the club should visit the its website at for further details. Alternatively, email enquiries can be made to:
