(Frederick) Neville Clayton, "Winner of the Cape Argus Light Car Derby" in this MG ? I have failed to find anything more about him.
Regarding Vernon Celliers Berrange, here's what I have found -
Born in Pretoria 25/11/1900. Admitted to the South African Bar in 1924 and worked as a lawyer in Johannesburg. Became a leading left wing lawyer in South Africa.
The Apartheid government subjected Berrange to Banning Orders on charges of his involvement with the ANC and his former membership of the banned South African Communist Party. He was forced to leave South Africa and live in Swaziland until he was given a “tourist” visa in 1958.
In 1963 Vernon Berrange was a leading member of the legal team defending Nelson Mendela and other ANC members in the “Rivonia trial” in which Mandela faced the death penalty for sabotage.
He remained a target for the SA Security Forces even during his later years .
In 2010 the South African Government made a posthumous award to Berrange honouring his work in fighting apartheid..
The Order of the Companions of OR Tambo in silver was bestowed on Vernon Berrange : “For his excellent contribution to the struggle against racial oppression in South Africa”. Oddly, despite being born in Pretoria, Berrange was given a medal reserved for "foreigners".
Hope this helps,
