Richard Graham, now resident in Italy contacted me recently with the photos below, many thanks.

I came upon the TSMEE website by accident and saw your request for pictures. Attached are 4 pictures taken around 1958 or 9 in the club house at Manors station. I'm the lad in the checked jacket, aged 14 or 15. I was a keen model car racer at the time, and built my own cars.

I remember winning some competition or other (I can't remember what for) and was awarded a Vanwall model made by a Mr Brough (I think) who perhaps was the president of the club at the time - and an exceptional engineer. I remained a member for 2 or 3 years until O levels got in the way, after which I went on to bigger cars!
