I’ve still got the 500cc Velocette at home looking just like a new pin. I built a new garage on the old ‘cookhouse’ site and incorporated a bench with a window over it facing south, and covered the floor with bricks.
You never can tell just what this navy is going to do next and maybe it will not be long before they are satisfied with the present crew and so give this ship another chance to make its presence felt again in the Med. If so, I’ll be doing my level best to get in touch with you somehow. I may surprise you the same as I did Alan Brewin.
Well old son, I’m glad to hear through Mother that you’re OK and managing to hold your own over there, so may I wish you the best of Health and heaps of LUCK, plus many more happy landings.
So cheerio for the time being
From your One and Only
