Suttons makes its mark

  • 25 July 2012
  • By Roger Brown

Earlier this month, the Worshipful Company of Carmen held its annual “cart marking” ceremony at London’s Guildhall.

Horse-drawn wagons and carriages, steamers, veteran and vintage lorries, buses and coaches, and modern trucks and tractor units, turn up at the Guildhall to be branded or marked, with a red hot iron on a wooden plate, with the year letter and a unique number.

At this year’s ceremony, Widnes-based tanker haulier Suttons Transport presented its new Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Volvo FM tractor unit, resplendent in Union flag livery.

The ancient ceremony sees sees each vehicle branded by the Keeper of Guildhall, using a special brazier and gloves.
