KING GEORGE V In the death of His late Majesty King George the Fifth the British Empire, and' indeed the whole world, has sustained the most profound loss. At such times as this we are affected by a grief which transcends all other considerations, so that our sports, pastimes and mundane interests fall back, of necessity, before the realisation that the greatest Empire of all time, of which we...

The Bass Museum

The Bass Museum at Burton-upon-Trent was opened on July 16th by Sir Alan Walker, President of the Bass Charrington Group, to commemorate their 200 years of brewing. This compact but all-embracing museum is situated in an 1866 building within the Bass brewery at Horninglow Street. It tells of the history of brewing from the earliest days, and how the various brewing processes operate. The brewing...

Sir, I was most interested to see one of 3 our readers suggesting the formation of a Crossley club in last month's issue. I own a 2-litre Silver Crossley saloon which is just twenty-one this year. Its arrogant jutting radiator and uncompromising body lines represent the very cream of classic vintage design, and as for comfort and performance- well I think the facts that these cars were supplied...

Cars in books

From "Swans Reflecing Elephants — My early Years" by Edward James (Weidenfeld 8, Nicholson, 1982. edited by George Melly) we learn that the great British eccentric, who lived at the time of this book at West Dean in Sussex, where HM King George V attended shooting parties, had a Rolls-Royce when he was in America before the war, which figured in his pranks. and that when he went to Rome he got an...

"Royal Motoring" by J. Dewar McLintock

554 pp. 9 in. x 5.75 in. (G. T. Foulis & Co. Ltd., 1-5, Portpool Lane, London, E.C.1. 25s.) This is a book to which I had looked forward with enthusiasm; I had not had it in my hands for very long before being overwhelmed with disappointment. For those seeking yet another popular book about British royalty, written with respect and caution, in which, as the author calls them, "motors" figure...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...

White Elephantitis-encounter with a silent knight

There is the crack about a Daimler that, unless they are Royalty, most people ride in one only twice in their lives, to their wedding and at their funeral, one the sequentiality of the other. In spite of this unkindness the Daimler was, and is, a grand marque, rivalling a Rolls in the affection of Dukes and Duchesses.
