From the Sussex Daily News
|Passers-by stared in surprise at Brighton Station yesterday when
five men with large moustaches stepped into a battered sports car and whirled away with
their moustaches fluttering in the breeze.
Members of the famous "Handlebars" Club, led by their President Raymond Glendenning, B.B.C. sports commentator, they came to Brighton to open officially the local branch of the Royal Air Force Association's Flying Services Club in King's Road.
The picture shows Raymond Glendenning, Noel Henkel (secretary), "Nick" Carter, Humphrey Lestocq (F/O. Kite of B.B.C. fame) and Peter Gibbs.
