I came across these and despite them being produced between the wars I think that they are excellent and worth watching, any of you with children taking an interest n your vehicles may find them especially usefull.

Enjoy!

Reverse gear description at around 6:30 mins, seems a bit terse and, as gearboxes have always been a bit of a mystery to me I still can't see why that reverse gear works and how it differs from the first gear.
