I bought quite a few from him.

50 or more years ago Derrick Neave used to place a weekly advert in the Speedway Star, with a list of featured programmes he had for sale.  He resided in Benfleet at the time and later relocated to Saxmundham.  He was still advertising in the Star in the 1980s, but in one letter I received from him he told me that sadly he was finding the task of sorting through programmes and dealing with correspondence was becoming too difficult and painful, as he was badly afflicted with arthtritis.  He actually gave me a huge pile of early post-war programmes sometime in the mid to late 1980s as he was winding down.

That is so weird... I'd forgotten all about Derrick and his ads (I never bought anything from him).

As soon as I saw his name here, Saxmundham was the first thing that came to my mind!

He did live there after Benfleet.

I know, but it's just funny how we have things stored away in the back of our minds! As I said, I never had any dealings with Derrick, but I remembered something like that from years ago...
