A FORMER March man is trying to discover more about an unusual agricultural cart that he drove when working in a market garden back in the 1960s.

Glenn Fletcher says the cart - called an Ottoman Motocart - had to be driven by someone standing up, and could always be relied upon to tow start a Massey tractor on a cold morning.

“I have always been curious about that motocart,” said Glenn. “I would like to know when and where it was built, Also, the engine had just one cylinder, and I would like to know who many ccs the engine had.”

Glenn, now 63 and retired, took a photo of the cart with his Kodak Brownie camera in 1969, is appealing to readers of this newspaper to supply him with any information about the machine.

“It is probably the only picture of this curious machine from days gone by,” added Glenn, who lived in March until the 1990s and now lives in Grimsby. “I would appreciate hearing from any reader who has memories of the vehicle.”
