Is this Alan Wragg ? I only met him a couple of times.I was really impressed by his Austin racers. I believe that he and his son came to a sad end.

It is indeed The late Alan Wragg it is a Photo Udo has taken from his son Adams Facebook page Adam has put up a number of interesting photos from his fathers archive on Facebook. He also has a group on Sherwood restorations as was under his father.

I'm a big fan as I own one of the first frames he made.
