Alan’s final journey, on the National Rescue truck named in his memory (Andy Lambert).


and working on aircraft offered to the Museum in its formative years – although his and Andy's first job for us was to deliver some heavy scales for the Clubhouse weighbridge from a council yard in Chertsey. Soon afterwards he joined other volun- teer staff from National Rescue removing many Vickers steam heating pipes and their gantries and concrete bases from around the Museum site in the late 1980s. The many aircraft and other larger exhibits that Alan helped us acquire for the Museum include the Hunter, Harrier, Varsity, Viking and Viscount airliners, as well as our Hurricane and many vehicles and ground equipment items. He expertly designed, manufactured and welded up


the ‘toast rack’ that carried the wings of many of our aircraft during the crucial dismantling, preparations for transport and reassembly stages in their acquisition. This important item is still in use at Brooklands nearly 30 years after Alan made it to assist in recovering the Varsity from near Peterborough. Probably the last major job that Alan did at the Museum was to help move the two Concorde simulator sections from the Stratosphere Chamber for restoration in the Acoustics Building during February 2008. His mechanical skills were also put to good use in his spare time in returning a number of historic vehicles to running order and also in maintaining and repairing National Rescue’s two heavy mobile cranes, ‘Milly’ and ‘The Brooklands Belle’ after they retired but remained in peri- odic use at the Museum. Alan was cremated on 6th April at Kingston, having travelled for the last time from Claygate on one of his beloved National Rescue Group trucks and this truck will bear his name for the rest of its working life.
