He was riding a Mead & Tomkinson BSA B50 machine. I have bought B&W images but a colour shot eludes me. Has to be a shot taken on the Island during the period of the meeting.

Can anyone help please?

I've trawled the usual commercial sites offering images but found nothing at all in colour.

Have you tried Bill Snelling over here on the IOM Paul? he is custodian of a huge TT photo collection, his email is amulree@mcb.net

Bill is a member on here but I haven't seen him pop up for a long time now, I think he's active on Facebook though.

Yes, have tried Bill. Have had other M&T images from him in the past.

Thanks for responding.

Paul,

Ah ok, hopefully someone else can come up with something for you.

The mention of Phils name had me looking on google at some of the old images, I remember him well and met him when he was an up amd coming club rider, in those days he was doing battle regularly with my neighbour Roger Marshall at Cadwell club meetings, it would have been around 1972, I have his autograph in my old book tucked away somewhere.

Although he's not on the BSA here, it might be of interest anyway.

Phil at the British Grand Prix meeting, Silverstone 1974 (with Phil Carpenter alongside).

I found it on Dave Riley's website - https://daveriley.weebly.com/
