Support Tally Ho


Feb 21, 2017, 6:44 PM
We've certainly made some progress over the past couple of weeks. The website is now reasonably sorted out, though we'll continue to work on it. We have a Facebook page and a JustGiving page. The latter has so far raised £710, which is brilliant, but of course we still have a long very way to go. I have tried to make contact with some people who may support our mission, and I have others I plan to contact. So far, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston has offered encouragement, and hopefully his interest will encourage others. I post periodically on Facebook and am looking around the Web for Tally-Ho related information. For example, I know that Tally Ho's first engine was a three-cylinder Smart & Brown paraffin engine, and her second, by Kelvin, a two-cylinder paraffin engine, possibly rather like this.

After the initial shock at the news, various members of the Albert Strange Association management committee exchanged numerous emails about the predicament. Ideas abounded, but communication by email has its limitations. On the fifth February 2017, five members of the Albert Strange Association committee met in a dining room in Forest Hill, London. Physically present Were Dick Wynne, Jamie Clay and Gordon Scott. Present in spirit and by Skype, where Thad Danielson (in Marblehead) and Russell Read, in Buckinghamshire, England, staying away only because of a nasty cold that he didn't want to share. Our agenda was simple. In essence: Do we go ahead and try the rescue? If the answer is yes, what do we do and who does it?
