Mercedes Mystery

David Burrows of Norwich sends the accompanying photograph of a 1905 40 hp Mercedes which belonged to WG Christie, his father’s closest friend, who died last year. The car was then painted red and its Reg No appears to be SD 209, it being kept at West Point, Saltcoat, Ayrshire. It was converted into an ambulance in 1915 by its owner and presented to the nation, after which it served in Flanders. It returned after the war and was on show in the Glasgow Exhibition of 1921/22. Does anyone know what became of it after that? WB
