Congratulations on your February issue and in particular the superb photographic display of Guy Griffiths’ work.
One small point: the photo of George Saunders’ Cooper on fire should be dated 1948, not 1947, as George did not get his Cooper until Spring 1948.
Could it be that the young man in white overalls wielding the Pyrene fire extinguisher is Stirling Moss? He was competing at Shelsey in 1948, and it looks like him, they being the sort of overalls he wore in his first year. Later, he became much more pukka with a high collar and BRDC badge.
Perhaps someone could find out?
I am, Yours etc, Tony Caldersmith, Turramurra, Australia
