I was interested to read DSJ’s article about Gillie Tyree and NKA 9. I can well remember him passing my parents’ house on the A59 on Sunday mornings, testing the car from his garage in Lydiate during 1950-51; I can’t imagine that happening now!
Secondly, I write from a National Trust property, formerly the home of the Colchester-Wemyss family who during the early 1900s provided accommodation for Siamese Royals staying in England for their education. One, described as “the little brown Prince” in a Press article of that period, may have been father to Prince Chula, Bira’s cousin and racing manager. The dates given in a family tree in the foreword to Bira’s Bits and Pieces would tie in.
