    The gentleman wearing the bowler and riding the scooter was \"Jack\" Hornsby, a cousin of my mother. \"Uncle\" Jack raced motorcycles (track and circuit) during the 1950\'s, graduating to 3 wheels (motorcycle and sidecar /\"chair\"). His hair-raising yarns of narrow escapes fascinated me throughout my \'teens, and inspired me to take up motorcycling.
    Jack established the first Vespa motorscooter dealership in the UK, and was encouraged by his advertising agency to appear as the rider in the \"water scooter\" TV commercial (with his daughter on the pillion) in 1965.
    Jack was still riding his BMW motorcycle in charity events at the age of 90, and sadly died 4 years later in 2009.
    I will remember him with great affection.
