I’m sorry to have to tell you that Mr Hugh Clifton (the farmer who allowed us to use his field during the Hooe Show), passed away on Wednesday morning, 7th March; he was very keen on the vintage scene, and certainly helpful to the club. A card will be sent to the family on behalf of the club.

If you ever come across a Wolseley or Morris with a Preselector gearbox please forward a contact to me. This box might have been designed and constructed by the German engineer Erich Friedrich Puls who spent some years in the UK and worked for Austin/Morris in the early 1930s. His grandson who I know quite well still runs the company PULS GETRIEBE in 3rd generation which was founded in 1926. They made P/S boxes for BMW Dixi, Horch, Opel, Trucks, Buses etc., and would very much like to find a surviving car with one of the boxes made by the founder in the UK. Furthermore I have a lot of material regarding the Puls boxes, e.g. drawings, description etc. which might be of some help for an owner of such a car.
So if you own, or know of, such a car please get in touch, either via me (I don’t have Mike Pilgrim’s email address, so contact Sue or Bob Colson at email@example.com) or direct with Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org
