One of my heroes had the pleasure of meeting him many times as a boy at school Fates and also in his garage in Edenbridge.

His mum lived in Beddlestead lane near Tatsfield...and so my mum tells me helped the mid wife when I was born.

A true local hero. A gentleman. As talented in the saddle as behind the wheel, and in the pitlane too.

It is defies belief that this legend was never honoured with a knighthood.

Goodbye Big John.

Didn't know about the connection with Beddlestead Lane - brings back childhood memories of cycling along it. Then the breakneck ride down Titsey Hill.

Yes his dad had a motor cycle shop in Tamworth Road but later (albeit still pre-war) relocated to Elmers End. The family then lived in Homer Road in Shirley before being bombed out and moving to Catterick.
