Finally managed to insert photos of the two Sentinals originally bought by H.Sarjeant & Sons of Hougham.

Very nice pics. Thanks for posting. Sadly I can't find the details because The Boss has tidied up my books! I can't find a damn thing! Sorry but they are all Sentinel's, the Waggon looks like a Super or a DG. The others are Tractors that would pull two or three trailers, very common in Liverpool until the early 1960's, or even pull timber off of the felling stands. Seems like I missed a good collection of Sentinel products, damn......

A nice pair of Timber Tractors. A little later I will post works details for them (dinner is calling).

Our local butcher, Bernard Barker of Northwood Drive, Sittingbourne had a Sentinel like that. I think he sold it about 10 years ago. Are there many of these around? Could be the same one, I suppose!

I spotted this one last weekend at Fordwich Model Steam Fair. Proving it is possible to rake-out and eat a '99 at the same time.

Hi again. The waggon from HMS Sultan is a 1930 Super Sentinel and not a S4. The S class have a very distinctive front Dash whereas the Super looks a lot like its older sisters, the Standards. They had single gearing and chain drive, the S has a shaft drive. A very nice waggon in her own right but sadly not a S4. Thanks anyway.

The last time I saw the Sultan Waggon it was fitted with an open, passenger carrying body. Probably built as an R.N. exercise, it was being used to give rides around Sultan during one of their open days. I'm talking here of C1980, but no photo I'm afraid.
Would this be the only "bus" bodied S4???

Hi,
I can't remember if the HMS Sultan Waggon is a DG or a Super, don't really matter as she is a fine engine in her own right. Thanks.

You'll be interested to know that a Sentinel Steam Wagon, maintained to the highest standards, is owned by the Royal Naval School of Marine Engineering (HMS SULTAN), Gosport, Hampshire, attached to which is a plaque 'Purchased form Wingham Engineering'.   In the lounge of the Red Lion Pub, Wingham, is a picture circ 1935 could be the same vehicle.

I lived in Wingham during the 1950's and remember it well.

Okay S4, here goes... not sure if you have seen this, I leave the text in as well.  From Steam Wagons in Foucs by the late John Crawley (a true gentleman of Steam).

If you have this photo, I will keep searching.

My Dad had the White Lion [Fremlins] in Dean Street East Farleigh during the Suez crisis 1955-56?
I remember this actual Steamer delivering bitter to the pub on draught in Tuns. Dad had to fill Firkinds on the stocks and add finings. Apparently it went up Tovil hill as if it wasn't there!
Happy days

That is the right kind of machine. The one I am looking for is AKR 958. I understand that at the moment she is in a barn near Ware in Hertfordshire. That said that is a very good pic of one, a S4, in action. Thanks, Sentinel S4.
