up the swanee without a paddle
The factory next to where I once worked was called 'Doel's'. They made milking machine hardware....stainless steel benches, churns & other related equipent.
One day their manager arrived with 2 shiny new churns & a battered metal plate. It ended up being my challenge to engrave the company logos for mounting on the churns.
The site where these factories once stood is now a Wilkinson's & a Lidl.
Life was far more interesting in those days.
CAN YOU REMEMBER WHETHER THE DOEL NAME WAS ATTACHED TO ANY OF THE CHURNS OR OTHER EQUIPMENT THAT FIRM PRODUCED.
ANY IDEA AS TO HOW TO ACQUIRE ONE OF THEIR CHURNS.
That is very interesting. I am the great grandson of the original owner who started the business. On his death the business continued to be run by some of his sons for many years. I have many photos of the family attending a farming exhibition in the New forest along with their sign written vans.
In answer to the question, I do believe that the name Doel was engraved on the milk churns they manufactured as another relation once remarked he had seen one in an antique shop once and always regretted not buying it.
