—To commemorate 70 years of motoring the Mercury & Herald of Northampton has issued a motoring supplement which, although compiled in journalistic style, contains much of interest, in text and picture, about early motoring in their area, including speed events on public roads, coachwork by Mulliners and Grose, pioneer drivers and events, etc. Copies can be had, for 6 1/2p, to the Circulation Dept. of the paper at The Parade, Nottingham. The first motor vehicle in the town was apparently Joseph Grose’s 1896 Coventry-Motette. The STD Register is pressing on slowly with renovation of its Roesch Talbot ambulances but has been outdone by the Daimler and Lanchester OC, which has a fine Daimler ambulance as its mobile headquarters, presented to it by the Daimler Company, albeit not a vintage one, as it is a 1953 DC27 model.
