A note in the East Anglian Daily Times on 18 August 1939 said ‘Mr Frederick Spall, proprietor of a small garage at Rivenhall near Witham, has completed the construction of a motor cycle combination which he believes will, if taken up, form a valuable contribution to air raid precautions. The entire cost of construction was less than £7’.
