Jack "BUSTER" Brown and some of his Nortons

Jack Brown

-By Barry Brown in Canada- My late friend Jack Brown (no relation) of Heckmondwyke Yorkshire, ex-Royal Navy boilermaker and diver, motorcycle- and auto-enthusiast and model maker.

Here is one of Jack's earliest models made in spare time on board a destroyer in the South China Sea, circa 1936. Also pictured a few of his bikes and his wife Lyna.
