  • John:

    "Fantastic snaps and special memories for me as April 1974 was my first speedway meeting. It was the Rockets v Peterborough and I think the score was 40-38 in the Rockets favour. Could the picture of perhaps Alan Emmett maybe be Les "Red" Ott?"

  • Michael Edwards:

    "The rider in question is I think Peterborough's Jack Walker, the leathers look right."

  • Wayne:

    "Yeah I don't think that picture is Alan Emmett, he's my Dad and I'd know him anywhere"

  • Mike Edwards:

    "Rye House, I believe the rider labelled as being Allan Emmett might be Jack Walker ex Panthers and Bee's rider from about 1974?"
