1949 5th Brighton to Glasgow

Race Summary Credit: Story of The Brighton to Glasgow by Charles Fearnley

1949_Brighton_Glas-six001wA page from a book about the race kindly sent in by Coureur provided the initial information.

The book was .... Fearnley, Charles - The Story of the "Six" - an intimate account of the 1949 Brighton-Glasgow Six day Cycling Marathon, London, Hutchinson, 1949

And through the generosity of another web user a scanned copy of the whole book has since been provided. [Thanks to Tony Stringer]

So after a long delay - apologies Tony - work has at last started on putting it online.
