Lucky escape

50 Dec 16 1969 van SM Farm

RIGHT: This van, en route to a Castledawson farm to deliver a 7cwt Lister generator, came to grief in a spectacular manner recently when it hit a patch of black ice on the road. The van, belonging to the Belfast-based firm of J E Engineering – a division of Jennings’ Electric – was being driven by 25 year old electrican Eric Ferguson who, with an apprentice, escaped unscratched. Luckily they had taken the precaution of securing the generator with good strong ropes at the rear of the vehicle. The generator, incidentally, was delivered to the farmer.
