Hants & Berks M.C. Specials Evening (July 26th)

For three years now Nancy Cawthome has organised an unusual and most interesting assembly of privately-owned "specials" from amongst the Hants & Berks M.C. membership. Known by the delightful title of "Sloggin and Clatter," the idea is that unusual, even unexpected, vehicles shall turn up, to be examined, discussed, and perhaps ridden-in. This year the assembly was a couple-of-dozen strong,...

No more B.M.C. touring kits

Sir, Last month I called at my usual B.M.C. main agent to obtain an overseas touring kit for my Sprite, only to be told that these kits are no longer available for B.M.C. cars. As an alternative, agents had been sent a list of spare parts which the customer was either advised to purchase or else come to a private "sale or return" agreement with the individual main agent. Since the list comprised...

The Wartime Diaries of an RFC Officer

The Wartime Diaries of an RFC Officer (continued from the October issue) THESE diaries of the Irish Guards Officer who had joined the Royal Flying Corps, whom I am referring to as X, are now at the October 1917 stage.

Fragments on Forgotten Makes

No. 10: The Warren Lambert It is hard today, when only 25 manufacturers are currently operating in Britain, to appreciate just how many were struggling for existence before the first World War. One such make which achieved more success than many, before it, too, faded away, was the Warren Lambert. Mr. A. Warren Lambert had the first garage in Putney and made a name for himself at Brooklands and...

Continental Notes

Without doubt the event of the year was the visit by a large contingent of Indianapolis cars and drivers to Monza, creating a meeting that was unique in the history of European motor-racing.

The Monza-Indianapolis event was something new to European racing eyes, and as such...

Forgotten Makes: The Mass

I will try to avoid making too much of the rather crude joke that the Mass must have been so-named to appeal to those of the Catholic faith, or that it was done to encourage customers who, in the earlier motoring days, thought there were dangers in this mode of travel that might be less serious if their motor car was strongly constructed. In fact, the name derived from that of the Concessionaire...
