FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLET

I liked Anne Bradford's book:

The story of the company
and the people who made it great: 1851-1969.

My Review
of the Book


I was an apprentice there from 1957 to 1963, and this book sure brings back memories.

I remember testing the Berkeley sports car with the Royal Enfield Meteor engine for overheating. Tony Wilson-Jones drove & I took notes.
We drove all over Worcestershire including Sunrising Hill near Evesham. We measured the cylinder head temperature and it never got hot.
