1960 - Ken Campbell

Ken Campbell
John Carroll writes:
He set off on 09.11.60 from Ndola, Northern Rhodesia (near the Congo border) with a chap called Joe Thwaites as co-driver (so the 80in was already 7 years old) and drove through Tanganyika, Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Egypt, Tunisia, Italy, France and England and arrived in Solihull on 03.01.61. Co-driver Thwaites went home to Rhodesia from Tunisia but the bit that I like (and I know Toby Savage will) is that the duo folded the screen flat in Uganda and it stayed down until Campbell put it up in Dover in the January cold!
