C D Terry of Moseley had invented an “improvement relating to collision braking devices for vehicles” which he sold to Gardu Ltd for some £200. 00 in preference shares. By 1956 B78LS was with Gerald Leslie Sargeant at “Farthings” in Selsey (in 1967 the house was sold to the famous astronomer Sir Patrick Moore); when Gerald & B78LS moved it was to Weybridge in Surrey where. in due course. Gerald became Club Secretary of the famous St. George's Hill Tennis & Golf Club. The site of St. George's Hill was owned by W G Tarrant. designed by Harry Colt & opened in 1913 by Prince Alexander of Teck (brother to Queen Mary). A later sporting owner was Richard (Dick) Tindell who during WWII served with the RAF in the “Liberator” 40 sqd as a Mid Upper Gunner on a B24 bomber. It was the duty of the M-U Gunner to check out the taxi path of the liberators. both prior to take off and after landing. Dick owned B78LS for almost 30 years & his stable of vintage cars included a Lagonda & an Austin Healey in which he would often arrive at the Rugby Club in.
