My Mother and Father are visiting me from the UK at the moment. They've bought some old family photos along with them, and this was among them.

As I mentioned in my 1964 Morris Mini thread in the "Our Cars . . ." section, my Grandfather bought a brand new Morris Mini early in 1965. The white car, DRP 300 C, is that car. The gentleman standing been the cars is my Grandfather. My Father thinks that this photo was taken while he was marshaling on the 1965 Cotswold Rally. I'm not sure what month that would have been. My Granfather passed away in November of '65 I believe.

On the grill of DRP you can make out the AA badge on the driver's side of the grill. The badge on the passenger's side is the badge for Northampton and District Car Club, of which my Grandfather, my Father, and I were members at different points in time. Both number plates are Northampton area prefixes I think.

I hope the photo may be of interest to some of you here.
