nne Williscroft has sent in some smashing photos of her Step-Granddad - and motorcycle enthusiast - Eric Wilson. In the first photograph below Eric is the one with a moustache holding one of the trophies. Anne offers the following information and would like to know more about these super pictures....
"The picture of the 8 men looks to be outside some sort of pavillion. My Step-Grandad, Eric Wilson, worked at the Gauge and Tool but I don't know if it is anything to do with that. Comparing this picture with others I have of him (and looking at the size of the moustache, which when I was growing up was Jimmy Edwards' size) I would think it is late 1940s.
"I would be grateful if any motorbike experts could identify the bikes in the other two photos. The picture of VC6135, I think, would be early 1930s, the other one probably later 30s. If anyone can also recognize the location that would be great."
