He raced a Maserati 6CM during 1937 and 1938 and in August 1938 bought an ERA-B which he raced in South Africa the following year. During WW2 he gained a commission in the Royal Fusiliers and was wounded. In 1947 during a sailing holiday with friends to Denmark and Sweden, he fell over board. Later at a Stockholm hotel, he complained of chest pains and died. (bio by: Paul Narramore)
