The Gray Brothers
Many thanks for publishing the
photograph and my epistle relative to the Gray brothers and the LSR Railton car. For the sake of the historians I would like to correct one mistake of mine — the fifth member of the Gray team was Frank Newbold (not Newcombe).
In adding to my original copy surely W.B. was wrong in saying that they had a works behind “The Ship” in Byfleet; my memory tells me that they always worked at Brooklands in either the ERA shed or T&T’s. Surely when W.B. refers to their works behind “The Ship” in Byfleet he was thinking of Les Anstead whose work was concerned more with racing motorcycles than cars. Kenilworth HARRY MUNDY [Yes, I stand corrected Harry! Les Anstead had the premises behind “The Ship”, confusion arising because he made the tanks for Campbell’s LSR cars, the Multi-Union, etc and exhaust systems innumerable, for Morgans, Bugattis, MGs and many other cars, including the silencer for Millers 21-litre Benz. He began with the racing motorcycles in 1924 but had seen Brooklands being built, as a boy living in Weybridge — Ed.]
