You may also be interested to attend the book launch party on Sunday, May 12 2019 at the British Motor Museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire, CV35 0BJ.

If you needed any extra persuasion to attend this event, I just heard the following from the author of the book, Bill Munro:

"I'm very pleased to say that three former HFR employees with strong Jensen connections have accepted my invitation to the book launch and Ferguson FF Day.

One is Bill Chatterton, whom you will have met at the Jensen Interceptor/FF 50th. The second is Bill Simpson, another design draughtsman who attend the Jensen stand at the 1965 Motor Show along with Bill Chatterton. The third is Alan Gillingham, who was workshop foreman and was involved in the building of the FF transfer cases."
