Thank you all for the help ( :roll: ) Gentlemen - I didn`t realise these things were so exspensive or rare - think I`ll stick to the earlier vintage tackle it looks a lot cheaper to restore!!!

When was that style, or emblem, first used on a DB and what is the significance of the Red & White Roses ? Heard many views but nothing official written down .

First used in 1958/9 on the 950 pre-Implematic model. Depicts the white rose of Yorkshire and red rose of Lancashire. It was brought in at the time David Brown purchased the Albion factory at Leigh in Lancashire. It was decided that the two roses would be used for the emblem because back in the time when Kings fought battles the two Counties went to war with each other, known as 'the war of the roses' and in using the roses it was a sort of 'gesture' to bring the two Counties together and unifying them in manufacturing.
