Arthur Gilbert on his Douglas, c.1927

Dave Gilbert has sent in this wonderful period photograph of his grandfather taken, he believes, in 1927. The Douglas has a Gloucester County Council registration – does anyone recognise or know anything of the machine, which Dave believes to be an EW 600 Sport.

Aero Unearthed!

Last taxed in 1963, this 500 Aero from 1937 has recently come to light. Formerly owned by a Club member, now sadly deceased, the Aero is in extremely original condition. The new owner intends to restore it to running order but preserve the patina gained over its 82 year life. The parts missing in the photo were also supplied, so the next task is to reassemble it and see if it runs after 56 years!
