Aerial Sunbeams

One has to admire the large amount of research which Alec Brew must have done before writing Sunbeam Aero Engines (published by Airlife, with 160 large pages, and Copious illustrations, ISBN 1 84037 023 8 £39.95) It describes critically the 26 different Sunbeam aero-engines, the aeroplanes and airships in which they were installed, and the Sunbeam Bomber, gives a history of the STD organisation, and lists nine racing or LSR cars powered by Sunbeam aviation engines, reminding me of the research I did on these cars for my Aero-engined Cars at Brooklands book.
