    Arthur Bray is pictured with his co-pilot Jimmy Couling, a Marine Engineer who was responsible for maintaining \'Dream Girl 1V\'s engine. Jimmy was also co-pilot in Holland during the mid-thirties, He was considered by many to have a magic touch with engines, marine and motors, (cars and motorbikes) How do I know - he was my father.
