  1. Hi David, my name is Michael Harrow and back in 2000 I was working with Alvis vehicles in Telford with a friend and colleague Bob Skinner, as well as being an officer in the TA ( 118 Recovery Coy REME). All of which resulted in my TA unit rescuing Deborah from Mayor Audraine’ s farmyard and relocating it to its current ‘ Resting place’. Last year I visited Flequires and was only able to peak through the locked barn doors. I even managed to find Philip Gorsenski but alas he didn’t have time to allow me to see Deborah.
    All that said do you know what is going to happen to Deborah?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Michael Harrow, Retired Alvis employee, TA officer, and Liaison officer Alvis/REME TA in 2000.
