Hello ODK history lovers
In the day Australia’s Victa was an international success,
exporting to over 50 countries.

Victa has been a recipient of numerous export awards.

Victa opened its first UK office in 1961, and this was central
to expansion across Europe. By 1965 Victa had won its first
export award.

This brochure dates to about 1982, and it reflects a collaboration
with the old, established British brand Wilkinson Sword.

That’s a clever strategy – the linking of an AUS import with an old,
respected British company.

And think of those aggressive military models of that era –
Charger, Commando, Silver-StreakSabre. Note how the Victa logo
is surrounded by the same razor-blade packet made famous by
Wilkinson Sword. Black for sophistication and stealth; red for excitement.
This is the Charge of the Mower Brigade. Hurrah!

This is a domestic UK brochure featuring the domestic Victa models
of the day: - the Silver Streak, the Power Plus, the steel-based
Commando, and the Victa Utility.
