Good to see some film of Betty Skelton and Little Stinker; I hadn't realised Wee Bee made a trip over here as well.

As a schoolboy I attended this show together with a school friend travelling down to Gatwick from London by train. I remember Betty Skelton's display, it got quite a write up in the press ISTR, a woman doing a man's job!
