Three Cocks Vintage Rally
8th to 9th August 2015
Report Picture

The Three Cocks Steam and Vintage Rally is a good show in Hay on Wye. There were craft stalls in the big tent as well as other stalls to stroll around. There were some fire stunt displays which attracted the attention of all.

There were some lovely cars on show but my pic of the show was a very rare 1928 Rolls Royce 20HP Sports Saloon. It was designed for GRN Minchin who was a crime novelist, a friend of Henry Royce and Charles Rolls who also supplied batteries to Rolls Royce. Subsequent owners included Brigadier-General Scoursfield-Davies a three times escapee from Colditz Castle Prison during WW2. Later it was owned by Chairman of Vickers-Armstrong and latterly it was an exhibit in a museum in Chichester for almost 40 years. It was then re-commisioned for everyday use. WELL DONE to the owner Mr R Rossi from Holmer.
