My dad had a Bees badge which was fitted to the badge bar on his Standard 10. I would dearly like to own one to put on my Riley, a tall order I know but can anyone help me please? Apologies if I should not have posted this request. Blush

It was my father's, Vaughan, and was affixed to a badge bar on his successive Standard Vanguards, along with RAC and VMC badges. I wish I knew what had happened to those, particularly the latter! Obviously the Bees badge has great sentimental value to me, so I couldn't put a price on it.

As cars these days don't have bumper bars, I had to think of a better place for my Bees badge!

Speedway supporters have a big night coming up on Thursday 13th June at the Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club. It’s also a big night for the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund as the former Coventry Bees legend Tommy Knudsen earlier this year sent over a large collection of his trophies and race jackets to be auctioned for the fund. This will be completed at the supporters event. SRBF Chairman Paul Ackroyd said “This is a great gesture by Tommy, he sent a 92kg pallet over with the collection. We auctioned some of the items at the Ben Fund Bonanza at Leicester, and there has been great interest in the remainder of the collection which is up for auction on Thursday.” Lawrence Hare and Joe Owen, former riders who were both left paralysed by track crashes, will be present at the event and Bruce Cribb will be signing copies of his new book, to be sold also for the benefit of the SRBF. A big attendance of collectors and other interested parties is expected at the meeting which starts at 8pm. Venue: The Brandon Club, Main Street, Brandon, Coventry CV8 3HW.

From the NSSC: A total figure for the evening was £2620.21. This includes the raffle, collection and auction. A great effort from all concerned; Tommy Knudsen, Paul Ackroyd, Lawrence Hare, Joe Owen, Bruce Cribb, the host & auctioneer Peter York and especially the good speedway folk who dug deep in to their pockets to achieve such a great total for such a great cause. Peter York again hosts the next event at the NSSC on 11th July when Bruce Cribb returns to talk at length about his new book which of course will be available to purchase with all profits going to the Ben Fund. Proceeds from entrance fees and raffle on the evening will also be donated to the Ben Fund.

Tom Farndon's grave is in St Paul's Cemetery Jackson Road, Holbrooks. Just go to the chapel and look for the black marble motorcycle grave, you can't miss it.

Thanks for that, Mobray - and a belated welcome to our friendly forum Wave If you type "Tom Farndon" into the search box (top left hand corner) and press "go", this will bring up several mentions of him on the forum, including some information about this "Famous Coventrian" Thumbs up

This badge will shortly grace the front of my Riley, after a bit of negotiation I managed to knock him down a bit Wink
