Firstly, please continue to remember our fellow MG owners struck by the devastating floods in Brisbane, Queensland Australia. Tony Slattery sent me a sequence of photographs with time stamps on them showing just how quickly the waters rose - in 22 minutes a once peaceful creek burst its banks, flooded across a field and completely engulfed and covered an entire barn! These pictures are this month's Picture of the Month. Tony Slattery assures me they are called 'sheds' in Australia.
The appeal for assistance is continuing throughout February and I make no apology for bringing it to your attention again. Please find it within you to make a donation however small, and include the key word as to how you wish it to be distributed.
The MG Car Club of Queensland has set up a DONATE facility where donations can be made. If you would like to donate to their flood appeal, it would be greatly appreciated.
When you make a donation, on the REVIEW screen, under Add special instructions to the seller, please indicate how you would like the funds distributed by including one of the following words:-
- If you wish your funds to help re-build the Clubrooms, please include the word "CLUB"
- If you wish your funds to assist in the storage of members cars whose homes have been destroyed, please include the word "HOME"
- If you wish your funds to assist in saving/resurrecting MGs that have been damaged and submerged in the flooding, please include the word "SAVE"
- If you wish your funds to be equally distributed to the three areas of need above, please include the word "MG".
The Reprinted Article comes from The Autocar, 14 September 1951 and is an article entitled Overseas Encounter - How to have an accident (if you must) when abroad!
