A WATN contributor has alerted me that he has a number of items from an estate that he has inherited available which he is looking to sell. If anyone is interested in the below, let me know and I'll put you in touch with him. He is planning these items to sell on Ebay as things stand.

Wow!!!


That 1946 Log Book could have clues to some of the races which have some results missing'

Suspects a lot of the stuff is out of my price range. :cry:

Mr Jenkins any idea when the ebay sales will start since this will be interesting to monitor?

Hi Paul,

I'll let you know as I want a couple of the photos in the auctions as well. Some very rare chaps in there. Should be quite soon.
