The "White Lady"

Here is the 'White Lady' colour pattern for Bill Southam's Bellbrook Swayback No.2

I had made a bid for one of these on ebay, missed it, and was then offered a better one!
How good is that!
More pics for your interest:

The price on the bottom of the box dates this Bellbrook at post-February 1966.

I recall Capt Seaweed asking about Swaybacks without writing on the bib:- well, this is one! Image
There is plenty of surface corrosion from nearly half a century in the shed, but no signature whatsoever.

For some reason the No.2 Swayback had been eluding me, now I am very happy to add this nice example to the collection.

Without being absolutely certain,I would presume that any Swayback with writing on the bib was older than one without. Cheers,Jim
