rethinking travel

Find us on @LRMonthly @land_rover_monthly LandRoverMonthly @Landrovermonthly I wrestled with the dilemma of publishing our cover story. Is it not insensitive to publish a travel piece at a time when we cannot travel? So I read the article. During their journey, Mary Hannah and Andy (owners of the Defender on cover), while in the middle of a white-out near the Arctic Circle, see someone standing next to the road, trying to wave them down. They stop, the man’s vehicle has left the road a few miles away and his son is still in it. He isn’t wearing any decent winter gear nor does he have any blankets, the chance of him freezing to death without help, is very real. Andy and Mary Hannah give the man a lift to his son, the pair embrace, and the…

Jack Dobson’s article in the February edition struck a chord with me about accessories. Three years ago we looked long and hard at the possibility of buying a roof tent and almost pressed the button, but we paused when we considered the time it takes to get it ready at a campsite, particularly in often inclement Scottish weather. We then spotted an advert by Drivelodge for their pop-up roof. For us it was a no-brainer. Their fibreglass roof is very neat and almost unnoticeable when closed. We kept the outside frame of our Brownchurch roof rack partly as a safety feature, partly for its looks, but also to hang a…

original land rover engineer reaches 100 not out

Find us on @LRMonthly facebook.com/LandRoverMonthly @land_rover_monthly @ Landrovermonthly THE story of Arthur Goddard is a remarkable one. Arthur joined the Rover Company towards the end of the Second World War and was responsible for the design and launch of the first Land Rover. In 1957, Arthur left Rover to join Lucas Girling, where he played a leading role in developing the company’s disc brake system. In 1970 he moved to Australia, and that was the last Land Rover enthusiasts heard of him until 2009, when he was famously rediscovered by a young Land Rover fan named Alex Massey. Alex shared the news with another Australian Land Rover historian, Michael Bishop, who wrote the now-famous book about Arthur entitled They Found Our Engineer. For those who want a shorter synopsis of the Arthur Goddard story see the…

and the winner is… gary pusey!

LAND Rovers took centre stage at the 2020 Royal Automobile Club’s (RAC) Historic Awards. Yes, it might already be 2021, but the awards ceremony, which is usually held at the RAC’s impressive Pall Mall HQ in London, was delayed in an attempt to see if members could attend. Covid decided otherwise and eventually the decision was taken to host an online ceremony. It was definitely worth the wait as Land Rovers dominated the awards from start to finish. Gary Pusey, LRM columnist and editor of our Classic section, walked away with the Outstanding Journalism award for his piece entitled The Wildlife Conservation Pioneers, which was published in our November 2020 issue. The heart-warming story of Ted Reilly and Jezebel, the Series I, who together created the enduring legacy of Eswatini’s national…
