astounding resilience of Barnes Wallis’s geodetic structures used on the Wellington. Supermarine Swift model We are grateful to the North East Aircraft Museum for the donation of a model Supermarine Swift WK198.

ESTATES AND HERITAGE


Site improvements Tidying various neglected areas of our large site continues apace with both our staff and volunteer teams actively tackling outlying areas as well as dealing with routine maintenance and other issues, including the felling and removal of dead and dangerous trees on the steep western slope of the Members’ Hill. Undergrowth and tree branches concealing the upper rim of the Members’ Banking were also removed in early February to enhance our visitors’ viewing of this most impressive part of the Track. In February we welcomed David Bell and Sean


Brewster as new recruits to our regular Wednesday work party and they both soon proved their worth by helping to clear all remaining autumn leaves from the Banking, also tidying up around the Air Raid Shelter beside the Test Hill. Redecorating the most frequently used parts of

It was awarded to G Packman who on this occasion was riding a Rover but went on to co-found Packman and Poppe (P&P) motorcycles based in Coventry. P&P entered three bikes in the 1925 TT but this was overshadowed by the death of Packman who died following a struggle with a salesman which caused a rack of silencers to fall on top of him.
