The Attendants:
Jo Zalmstra and Ansje were of the Zalmstra family where the Kuperus family stayed during the Dutch 'Hunger Winter' and Jo risked his life many times to gather any food or coal by bartering with farmers.

and Didy Holdsworth ca 1948

"I have no idea where that photo of me and your mother with Graham Perry was taken - it looks as if it might be somewhere like Blackpool !
Graham Perry was a good friend of mine - we were at Pangbourne together - his father was a Lloyds underwriter. He joined Shaw Savill & Albion as a cadet while I joined The New Zealand Shipping Company. He finally came ashore and qualified as a doctor in NZ.
I came ashore and worked in NZS Co mainly in their Head Office in Wellington in various managerial positions until I retired."

The very fast Allard
V12 Lincoln-engined Allard - very fast! Reg. FXP470
at Scargill House, Kettlewell, 1946

This was a special, based on the designs which were created before, but with a more slender look and more suitable for road touring. It was built in 1939 for a Military officer having a third seat across the back for his daughter to sit in. It was used in some competitions, indeed it was in 1950 at the hands of Leonard Potter that it met its demise down a ravine on the Alpine Rally; he tried to overtake a slower Jaguar XK120 car and amid the dust on the road did not see the sharp bend and went over the side narrowly missing killing himself and his navigator Arthur Gill.
