John Rosamond at Birmingham & Wolves

John paid us a visit recently to present a talk about the Meriden Workers’ Co-op.  John started at Meriden as a welder just about the time of the introduction of the the new p39 oil in frame, and later returned to Meriden in 1977 and ended up as the the Chairman until the closure in 1983.

John’s book “Save the Triumph Bonneville” is about that time.  This  is a very detailed account of all that went on and is compiled from minutes of meetings and actual correspondence and not just vague memories.  If you have a strong interest of that piece of history, then this book is essential for your collection because these are the facts.
