1947 Manx Norton

Ron Jerrard

-Alain- Hereby two photographs of a Manx my Father owned. The photo of my father above was taken at Holmsley aerodrome, a WW2 American airbase in the New Forest, Hampshire, near Southampton. It is a 350cc Manx. The English registration number is EOW 375. This is a Southampton number issued between June and September 1947.

The second photo is Ron racing his Manx in the 350 race at Thruxton on Easter Monday, March, 1951.

EOW 375 is now running around on a 2010 silver Ford motorcar but Alain would dearly love to find out if the Manx still exists.
