There's a small write up on the English Heritage web site

It's like what my painter friend Donald said to me
"Stick a fork in their ass and turn them over, they're done"

Thurs was a great day up at Surbiton apart from the weather on the way up
I was asked if I could take the van and thats the first time I got it up there
Very memorable day. Alvaro the owner of the workshop is keen to keep the
history going. Van was in good company and we retired to THE pub round the corner
