An absolutely lovely four door open Derby Bentley. re-bodied in 2006 by Steve Penny to a design based upon an original Offord bodied car. which. coincidentally. we owned three years ago. Built and finished to a fabulous standard. on a restored chassis. and consequently a lovely car throughout. which drives just as a Derby Bentley should. with a nice. taut feel. lively performance. excellent steering. etc. and to top it all fitted with an overdrive. which suits it really well. One of the nicest Derby Bentleys that we have driven. and there have been a few! The quality of the coachwork. the detail. the paint finish. upholstery. etc. are all wonderful. and need to be seen to be appreciated fully. Over £100. 00 spent on restoration by the last owner. all documented in the file that comes with the car. and only about 6. 00 miles since. so now nicely run in! Attractive. clean. sharp. and cheaper than an original tourer. despite being as good. if not better. in terms of quality. and being newly built. in lovely condition too.

Snippets: Harry Brickwood

Harry Brickwood (1876/1950)was a member of the Brickwood Brewing family of Portsmouth – the family's connection to the brewing industry can be traced back to the late 1600s in London. the “Guildford” offshoot moved to Portsmouth in the mid 1800s with two brothers Henry (1801/64) and Thomas (1796/1848) starting their trade. Harry's grandparents Harry (1828/62) & Rosetta Brickwood died in their early thirties leaving behind two young boys (John (Harry's Uncle) aged 10 & Arthur (Harry's father) aged 8). the firm of Brickwoods was managed by trustees until the boys reached their majority and by then three more breweries had been added to the portfolio. Tragedy & good fortune seemed to visit subsequent generations of Brickwoods -John Brickwood was widowed in 1889 when his wife Eliza “died at sea saving her baby”. in 1923 this baby – Madeline – drowned alongside her son Hans in the River Elbe in Germany. In 1893 he remarried to Jessie and in 1913 she contracted an illness from which she never recovered and died in 1917. in the meantime in 1915 their youngest son Arthur died in whilst serving at the front. Sir John's 3rd marriage was to Isabella Gordon – they had 4 sons but only one born in wedlock. quite a scandal in those days. Happier moments for John Brickwood included the fact that in 1898 he & 5 other businessmen founded the Portsmouth Football Club. in 1904 in recognition of his charitable works & business acumen John was knighted & in 1927 he was created 1st Baronet of Brickwood. John's brother Arthur died in 1894 aged just 40 - leaving 4 children aged between 20 & 13 years old. it is believed that John Brickwood took care of his nieces & nephews & in fact his son Rupert later married his 2nd cousin Rachael Shutte (Arthur's granddaughter). B101HM was with Harry Brickwood who had in contrast to his Uncle a relatively calm and collected lifestyle – his hobbies included Motor Boat Racing and sailing – in 1908 Harry was an Officer of the Day at the Olympic Races held in Southampton alongside Cmd Cumming & F. Armstrong. Harry himself was a keen yachtsman and later a founder of the Victory Class having won their 1st race in 1911! During the 1920s he owned a 5m sloop “Silhouette” and in 1922 “Coquette”. In 1917 during WWI Harry was serving with Navy Intelligence and was sponsored by SIS alongside Mjr Snepp to assist in the escape of PoWs; Harry is mentioned in Michael Smith's book “Six: The Real James Bonds 1909-1939” where he is described as working for MI1C sending parcels out to prisoners which contained “double bottoms” in which would be hidden maps. compasses. escape plans & other such documents! Harry's daughter Angela retained the Naval theme as she later married Vice Admiral Peter Compston. Deputy Supreme Allied Commander of the Atlantic. sadly this was after her father's death.
