Hello all, Does anyone remember the Triumph Owners Motor Cycle Club? I was a member for a short while in the early 60's and we used to meet at the pub just inside London Road from Gulson Road, the Saracens Head or Arms I think. This branch of the TOMCC is no longer in existence as far as I can make out. There is a TOMCC branch at Meriden which may have replaced the original Coventry one. I was riding a 1939 Tiger 100 at this time and remember attending the first Dragon Rally near Snowdon in Wales (1962) with members of the club. It was held in January and was freezing cold throughout the weekend. Chris Vincent, the sidecar racer started off with us on a new BSA A65L but we didn't see him again until we got there! Does anyone have any memories of this? Or better still some photos. Cheers

Question

Neil

Hello Neil, Yes, the Meriden section of the Triumph owners club still meets at the working mens club which is adjacent to the village pond. How long it has been there I couldnt say. I did 2 dragon rallys, 2009 on Anglesey and 2011 in Snowdonia both experiences not to be missed, the 2009 one was noted for its sub zero temperatures, I slept with all my biking gear on LOL. Happy days

Does anyone know if the personnel records survived, and if so, where they might be located?

I wonder where that house was? It looks rather 'posh' for Coventry. Great photo Neil.

Bohica, try the Herbert, for Triumph personnel records. I feel sure they may be there or they would know if, for instance, they were at Warwick University or County R Office.

The picture of the motorcycle on top of the globe seems to be the start of a new logo. Production of Triumph cars started in 1928, in 1932 a new logo with the words "Triumph all over the World" on it. The shape of the logo was oval with the globe placed in the middle of it and the name of the company above. Triumph Motorcycle Logo History Edited by member, 19th Jun 2019 12:39 pm

Good point scrutiny - I had not thought of that. I knew the car logo featured a globe. Thumbs up

Second thought, maybe the pic is for a Triumph carnival float? Thumbs up
