Trying Jorge, but it's all a bit before my time!

Donald Bennett is Air Vice Marshall Donald "Pathfinder" Bennett and I'm pretty sure his wife (Elizabeth?). Other web references not connected with motor sport may provide an answer.

G Thurnbull may be George Turnbull, later a leading motor industry figure?

Sopwitch is probably Tommy Sopwith?

A H Senior is Arthur?

E Malkin is "Codger" Malkin, father of Colin. Always known as that so not sure what E stands for. It would have been Graham Robson.

E Hodgson, Edwin?

Since this thread has been resurected, I can now add to lists above (from "Fly With the Stars - British South American Airways - The Rise and Fall of a Long Haul Trailblazer") re-Donald (D.C.T.) Bennett:
Full name Donald Clifford Tyndall Bennett, born 14 September 1910, Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.
No more data on "E" Bennett but his (Swiss) wife's name was "Ly".

A very warm welcome, Susan.
I believe you may find an interesting photo of yourself on the "Personal Photos from Rally stage etc" thread, competing with Rosemary Smith for "most fashionable hat in a rally car"!
I have no hesitation whatsoever in saying David inadvertently changed my entire future life by bringing the "Gulf" to a Heathrow start/finish within cycling distance of my home/school journey. I have never escaped from the rally bug since and probably never will. As a teenage Service Crew member on the last Gulf in 68, I have a few questions I would like to ask in due course if you can bear to stay around this forum long enough. The collection of famous rally names (mainly ex co-drivers) here joining the unknowns is growing!
I believe Jorge (jrally) in Portugal was seeking some of the crucial dates regarding David's life for his respected rally database and I was unfortunately unable to provide them, despite having once been a S&DMC member.

Thank You very much, ReWind !

I've visited some of their sites but they don't like to say where they were born !!

I think that any person who has a rally site should put those data because they are important when we want to find their career ..

Not much.

 

Nigel Heath – 01 July 1955 http://www.ewrc-resu...rofile.php?p=38

Georgios Phelippedes = George Philippedes, b. 13 March 1977 (of Greek nationality AFAIK) http://www.ewrc-resu...ofile.php?p=314

Julian Reynolds – 25 February 1968 http://www.ewrc-resu...ofile.php?p=103

John Lloyd – 28 September 1958 (or 1955?) http://www.ewrc-resu...ofile.php?p=127

Darren Gass – 21 June 1988 (residence: Markethill, County Armagh) http://www.ewrc-resu...file.php?p=2720

Emma McInstry = Emma McKinstry, b. 1983 in Banbridge, County Down (Ireland)

Melis Charalambous – 06 September 1969 (residence: London, but of Greek nationality AFAIK) http://www.ewrc-resu...file.php?p=2748

Peter Stephenson – 11 May 1947 (residence: Hartlepool) http://www.ewrc-resu...file.php?p=1469

 

But I assume you already have the dates from the ewrc website.

Thank You, Reinhard !

Yes, those I have

 

The same as I said regarding irish drivers ... very difficult !

Martin Holmes (one english person) established the standart to do it on driver's data : place and date of birth, year of first rally and first car but most part of the profiles don't have them .

 

When You are a researcher that put the limit where to begin to look for in order to 'build' something ...

 

Best regards
