Description

Purchased from the Campbell estate after his death by Mr L Hobbs, this fascinating lot provides a unique insight into the life of the British Speed Record breaker, Donald Campbell.

The Rotadex file contains entries relating to his personal and business life, including his Bluebird project. Notable names include Barnes Wallis, Sir William Lyons, John Cooper, His Grace the Duke of Richmond, Terry Thomas, De Havilland Aircraft and many more.

The large wooden desk and bin came with the Rotadex and was sympathetically restored. A superb piece of British history.
