    After consulting the JDHT it was discovered that 885175 had been given the wrong body number at some stage. The ID plate was stamped V1114 when in fact the correct body number is V1206. A new JDHT Heritage Certificate was issued confirming this.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
