MEMORIES OF FRED SCULLY
Fred Scully, a midget builder and driver in the late 1930s and a Sidecar passenger in the late 1940s also had some great Solo photos in his collection - shared here with us courtesy of his son
Bruce Scully - thank you Bruce.
Here is a great one to start with : Barbara ...who ? probably 1940s - any one know ?
Frank Dolan seen here with English rider Norman Parker - late 1940s.
Lionel Benson - Australian and International Solo star rider.
Ern Brecknell - Australian Test rider and also an International.
Moss Cochrane - Moss was a promising Newcastle junior who rode off 30 yards at the Sydney Sports Ground in the 1946 - 47 season quite often beating juniors of the like of Le Breton, Levy and Gates. It appears he did not go on with Speedway in Sydney after this season.
Aussie Test rider and International - Frank Dolan - infield on the Sydney Sports Ground wearing the English league West Ham breast plate.
