A reader has sent us a cutting from a women’s magazine showing a picture of a man and wife setting off on honeymoon in 1932 in a Windsor tourer, the alsation dog mascot from which still exists. (We dealt with this rare make in MOTOR SPORT many years ago). The car must have been about seven years old when the photograph was taken and the paper had to get the NMM to identify its make.
A street in Le Mans is to be named after N Bentley.
