I seem to recall Mr Rea was still riding the same bike that he used during the blitz, and was damaged by fire from his shed which some vandals started. Does anyone know any more on this?
My late father's bike is in the museum of Transport Coventry. I gave it to them when he died..... From Michael Rea, The Zero Carbon House, Unst, Shetland.

What memories that picture gave me. Les Rea, a great teacher and a great man. He taught me in my last year at Henry Parkes in 1961, coached me in football and took the team on to win the junior schools shield, we also won at rounders that year. I remember, he also collected car number plates, and would show me how he collated them.
