The "Jersey Lily" Potato Digger (no.2)
This potato digger was made by Bamfords
and evolved as a result of labour shortages in the First
World War. It was in widespread use at one time in Jersey.
This model was literally rescued from
being dumped a skip and subsequently restored by Mr
Francis Laurens who recognised its historical importance.
Mr & Mrs Francis Laurens generously
donated it to the Royal Jersey Agricultural and Horticultural
Society in 2005.
