  11. I wish i knew about nottstalgia sooner and could have corresponded with Chulla about RR. and Hucknall Aerodrome.We had a few customers from RR Hucknall come to my fathers garage at Watnall, two of them i remember was a Mr Coles who lived at Bleaseby who drove a mid 60s Vauxhall Cresta,and another chap by the name of John Ball who lived at Nuthall,he was an invalid who drove a early 60s minor 1000 traveller which we converted to hand controls. Have great memories of going to the airshows seeing the latest technology of the day and really enjoyed the ten shilling flight over Nottingham in the DC3.

  15. What year did you live on Holden Cres.Baz? I lived on Spencer Dr. just up the road from there i lived there from 1950 until 1968 and i can remember the estate being built i think it was Costain that built it. Before that there was a big house there surronded fields and trees which belonged to Charlie Hanson part of the Hardy Hanson breweries .When i was about 8 years old i remember going to Garden Fetes there every year it was very colourful i believe the house was called either Nuthall House or Nuthall Lodge. Across the road from the opening on Watnall Road in the 50s was a small army barracks and every so often would hold army exercises in the woods and fields.
  16. MargieH it is a Standard 12 or14 they were made beween 1945 and 1948. I think the only difference is the engine size. If i remember right the motif on top of the grill had a union jack on each side.
