Hello Brian
I have seen on my computer that the De LauneCC is still alive and thriving.
I have recently found a photo from around 1961-62 taken at Crystal Palace
circuit. I was a member of the De LauneCC for around five years and raced
for two years as a junior and for two years in the National Schoolboys
Championship. I think they were both held at Crystal Palace. I clearly recall
Terry Deeley winning the senior race at the Palace. Our club venue was at
Redpost Hill church hall in Dulwich and my mentor was Ken Smith (I think
this is Ken Hill, Ed) who had all the time in the world for us youngsters. We
had a shed at Herne Hill for track bikes and I remember Brian Dacey and
Reggie Barnett who was a couple of years older than me.

The photo shows the De Laune team left to right: Dave Nerritt, Denis Gosling,
Reg Barnett, Dave Cooper, Dave Griffin and myself.

I hope this is of interest.
Tony Graves
