J T A Temple on his c1922 16H Norton

Temple at the Public Schools Meeting at Brooklands on 14 April 1923, winner of the 500cc One Lap Scratch Race at 71.15 mph and best 500c time in the 500 Metres Sprint (The Vintage Years at Brookland, dr Bayley). He must have been a tall guy.

Simon: ".....sadly I think he came a cropper in the IOM some time later in the twenties. Not shown as a competitor in either the TT or Amateur so it may have been a practise crash....."
