Abingdon Museum

After a request from a list member, I managed to persuade the museum to let me take a few photos.
The elderly chap in a few of them just happened to be there!
He did not work at MG, but joined the Railways after service in the war and worked at Abingdon Rail Station where he recieved TCs from the factory, driven there by the factory staff, who drove them onto flatbed trucks, removed the battery, and drained the fuel. He then tied them down before they were transported to the London docks for export, he recalls, mainly to America.
So for those of you with EXU cars, this is the guy who probably could be said to have sent your cars to the US etc for you!!!

Regards Clive Sherriff
