Thanks Phil, yes any examples help for reference to these early bikes. That example bottom left is a good one, I wonder if many survived being so many probably crashed maybe not?

Thank you for the kind offer Phoenix, but do not have to bother you as have all nine. At least I know I have that year complete for motorbikes, and gradually the other years are falling into place with help on here. Thank you.

Here is another colour drawing of a speedway race, matrix. It illustrates the text complete Star Of The Speedway, which appears in the children's book Triumphs Of Sport And Speed, not dated but I would place it in the late forties or the very early fifties. The name of the artist is J E McConnell.

Thank you for that scan Phoenix. Do you know how many of The Triumph have motorcycles on their covers?

No I don't, matrix, sorry. As The Triumph isn't a Thomson paper I don't collect it. I just have a handful of copies as examples, and I have no plans to buy any more.

Here are some excerpts from a short story Roland Davies illustrated (and apparently wrote), published in the TV Comic Annual for 1957.

When I first saw the last illustration, I thought his style bore some resemblance to that of the equally versatile French artist René Pellos, and the motorcycles on the preceding page just confirmed my opinion (you can google for René Pellos, especially his sports drawings, on the covers to Sport Digest for instance).
