I read this call and it remembered me of our time at Mt Darwin, Southern Rhodesia, when my collegue Land Development Officer Roger Gladden had an Austin Gypsy imported (ca.1960)from the UK. I drove my Land Rover and we had a kind of a friendly competition, which was best in the bush. Roger came from Melton Constable in Norfolk. He drove it weekly from Mt Darwin into Chimanda Reserve. Sadly Roger passed away some years ago. Reading this call for a meeting of Austin Gypsy’s I awakenend and thought it fit to advertise this call in my private weblog. Hoping it might service you and a small tribute to Roger who took the risk to import that vehicle. I will abstain which vehicle was best:))
