I checked out the AC Dobson connection but that is I suspect a dead end. there is however a Works MG Driver called CF Dobson who has a brother & 3 sisters. We are trying to find more out about them at the moment.
CF Dobson was a Brooklands racer, I think. Possibly connected with the 'cream cracker' MGs?

Will have a look at the couple of books I have to hand

Not the CC cars, after all it seems.

Hmmm, so why does CF Dobson ring a bell? It'll come to me, I hope! :?
