The SD Enthusiasts' Club Newsletter

   Volume 2 Issue 41                     Spring 2021

 In Publication since 2003.

From the Editor.

I think we've made a good start to 2021 with this the first Newsletter of a new year. We have memories from three former SD employees. Barrie Woods has a second part of his reminiscences of life as a demostrator driver, Mick Waldock remembers the SD's that Marshalls of Cambridge refurbished for St. Lucia and Roger Morrisroe ponders on the strange ways of the Ministry of Defence. We have a fine set of four photos sent in by readers. Sadly we have to report that three former employees have died since our last Newsletter. I hope you all find some things of interest here.
