There was I, trying to promote the Greeves championship which we’d been given the low-down on at Northampton Classic Club Ltd’s Woodford meet in April, and being out of the office I surfed our online service www.mortonsarchive. com for a suitable pic, which was all well and good until it went wrong.
“Let’s use a pic which hasn’t been seen before…” went the thinking and surfing for Dave Bickers up came an image of the legend at Shrubland Park on August 4,1958. So far, so good.
The archive website uses unique codes for all the images, however trusting to memory, (big mistake), the code I used for the magazine brought up a photograph of FrancisBarnett rider John Clayton, in almost exactly the same spot.
Apologies to everyone concerned and also Greeves team man Alan Clough who pointed the error out to me at Kendal Revival. Above is the photo which should have appeared.
