The Lister CS Story
« on: September 14, 2018, 05:28:34 AM »
Hi All, have seen this book on ebay a few times and wondered, about it. Any one own it or read it.

Don't know much about the CS family, so worth buying a copy?

I have a copy and found it very interesting, I suppose if you're only interested in the machines themselves it would be less so.

If you have the historical bent Google Harry Ricado, the man behind the 'Cold Start' System.

If I could pick my date of birth I'd move it back to 1855, 100 years, the birth of the internal combustion engine, a period I would have loved to have lived through. Although given my luck I'd have probably ended up on a horse at Rorkes Drift!

Cheers

Thanks for your thoughts on the book,  have just  ordered it in Flebay.

Yes I could see you there with Michal Cane and your Martini Henry rifle keeping the Zulu hordes at bay.

I have read recommendations of the book and the author was ( before his fairy recent demise) considered an authority on liters.
