Obituary: Les Allard

Les Allard died in Brighton after a long illness borne with great courage. He will long be remembered for his boyish enthusiasm, whether scrambling on motor cycles or racing his blown Allard J2 which he campaigned with great verve and considerable success in sprints and hillclimbs, often making FTD. More lately he took to gliding and was chairman of the Southdown Gliding Club for some 25 years. A great character, much loved, Les will be sadly missed. To his wife Greta and to Terry, Nita and Daryl we extend our sincere sympathy. — NBO.
