Down tube transfers take various forms with an arrow pierced Hill Special being an early version, followed by a black and red three dimensional script design with later on plain black and white blocks.

The original head and seat transfer was an elaborate crest based on the Padiham Town Coat of Arms and the motto "Virtutis Fortuna Comes" - "Fortune, the Companion of Valour".

This was later modified for Blackpool production with a central red rose on a white background replacing the more elaborate coat of arms used at Padiham.

We are photographing all transfer variations and will upload as they become available.
