The report of the Brooklands Re-Union in your August issue stated that I designed the racing “GN” engines, but, much I would like to have done this, the credit must be given to H. R. Godfrey and the late Captain Frazer Nash.
These two brilliant engineers achieved remarkable results, usually by simple but very sound methods, and probably product more power per c.c. than any contemporary unit.
It was a great privilege to have worked with Godfrey and Nash, who were most tolerant of my shortcomings and always thought a good laugh was ample compensation for any financial reverse.
