National Rescue and Beyond
Late in 1983 Milly was introduced to Andy Lambert the founder of (and at that time MD of) The National Rescue Group, by his friend Mike Hebard (of Bells and Two-Tones fame). He decided to purchase her, to operate from their newly opened Brooklands Depot at Weybridge. After a coat of paint she was put straight to work on the already notorious A3 Kingston By-pass and the soon to become notorious M25, attending and dealing with, some of the worst accidents of the time.
Again her speed let her down badly and in 1988 her replacement, a huge DAF known as the Brooklands Belle arrived. National Rescue then sold the vehicle to Andy Lambert, to become part of his private collection. Andy decided to loan Milly to the Brooklands Museum where she has stayed, apart from a four month spell at Southend Airport dismantling the Viscount Aircraft - Stephen Piercey.
Her duties at the Museum are varied and consist of amongst other things, working on the Museum's collection of aircraft, winching huge pieces of concrete left over from the war out of the ground, carrying Bombs around the site and tree surgery.
During the early nineties Milly's sister also returned to work with an Essex bus company called Blue Triangle. As of today (mid 2016), it is believed she is active working at a Railway enthusiast collection.
