REMINISCENCES OF THE MERIDEN FACTORY

John Rosamond gives talk for the Rother branch of the Triumph Owners Motor Cycle Club.


On the evening of 18th April 2012 John Rosamond provided his "Reminiscences of the Meriden Factory" talk for a packed meeting (see above photograph) of members of the Rother branch of the TOMCC. The venue was the conference centre of the excellent Hasting's White Rock seafront hotel.

This is the first this year of a series of talks John is providing to TOMCC to help celebrate the 110 glorious years of Triumph motorcycles.

As the talk is at times "shocking", "humorous" and "thought provoking", building upon extracts from John Rosamond's Veloce book Save the Triumph Bonneville! The Inside Story of the Meriden Workers' Co-op; very lively Q&A sessions took place following each section.

Enthusiastic Rotherites purchased signed copies of John's book at the end of what they said had been a very enjoyable evening.
