A single cylinder Type AL (BY 1009) that belonged to our President, Tom Cook, was recently sold at auction, and is now believed to be in Denmark. If anyone is in contact with the new owner, perhaps he can be prompted to become a member.
A partially assembled 1912 Type DH (BF 9125) made the journey from New Zealand to Kent several years ago, where it was restored by the late Gordon Rose. One of our Welsh members, David Crouch, purchased the vehicle at the Richard Edmonds sale last December. David is in the process of reducing his fleet and has reluctantly decide to offer the car for sale at the Bonhams MPH auction, to be held at the Bicester Heritage site, on the 17th of July. The vehicle has a light two-seater body, a monobloc four-cylinder engine of 1642cc, and an easily accessible three-speed gearbox, which combine to offer a good turn of speed. The £12,000-£16,000 estimate is attractive for a car of this calibre. Who will offer it a home?
