Can anyone identify this mower please

I wondered if anyone can identify which model this kickstart Greens mower is. Thanks

I believe its a Greens Master Lightweight assume 14in, certainly well advertised from 1950 through the mid fifties.

Thanks Clive. It is 14 inch cut. However if that is a Master lightweight can you  tell me what this one of mine is ? 14 inch also. Thanks

That squint tank looks very bodged - I'm waiting for you to tell me its original now, but it looks very odd. It also looks very like a Qualcast 16 - I wonder if someone peeked over Qualcast's fence?

Sean, looks to be same model, first one may be missing the cover.

Adrian, Tank appears to be original.

1954 ad below.....

I know exactly what you mean about the tank but given that both mowers have almost the same tank and both are Greens mowers I am fairly confident that the tanks are original. That still leaves the exact identification of both mowers in question.

Found the missing cover Sean, bottom left in Thomas Greens Assembly Shop- Leeds, where you can see a few hundred 14in Master Lightweights being put together.

Will send you a clean copy of the image.

Thanks Clive, yes it was the cover that threw me. They are indeed the same mower. Oh well I've got a spare now if anyone's interested.
