On something in English tradition

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." — the prime minister, of the R.A.F. fighter pilots, 1940 THE firm of Rolls-Royce Ltd. is, perhaps, the most famous in the whole Motor Industry; indeed, it is so well known, and so highly respected, as to be virtually an institution. This was the case in the days before the last war with Germany, but it can fairly safely...

Matters of Moment

Showtime Soliloquy With autumn merging into winter this is the period of the Motor Shows, in Frankfurt, Paris, London, Turin and Glasgow, sparked off as it were by that Birmingham Motoring Festival at which real racing cars were actually allowed to circulate within the Armco-guarded precincts of this Midlands City.
