Surrey Sidecars brochure c1960

Another brochure for Surrey Sidecars, this one from around 1960 and very kindly provided by Richard Barnes, grandson of Edward Ford - the chap behind the company.

More on Surrey Sidecars to come...

As an aside to two wheelers, Edward Ford joined the Merchant Navy after leaving school and there is a fascinating account of his adventures here: http://www.pwsts.org.uk/edwardford.htm His maritime career began coinciding with the beginning of the Second World War. The account gives an amazing insight in to the rigours of life at sea at the time and encompasses travel across the globe as well as the rigours of the Atlantic convoys. Well worth a read.
