Mr. Fred Meiller of 5013, River Hill Road, Washington D.C.. 20016, has been successful, to a large extent, in tracing the history of his 1937, 4-door, coupe de ville 25/30 Rolls-Royce, but has drawn a blank for the immediate post-war period when the car was in Vienna during`the British Occupation. He would like to hear from a British army major who, between 1948 and 1954, regularly had the car serviced at “Ueberland Kraftfahrzengwerkstaetten” in the Mariahilfstrasse.

We thank those readers who have written in response to the suggested Brooklands Society. If the response is sufficient a further announcement will be made.

Correction.- The place where S. F. Cody flew his early aeroplanes was Laffan’s Plain, incorrectly quoted in a caption on page 725.
