A picnic using the first car we ever had. Paddy gave it to us. When he came back from Africa on leave he used to buy a cheap car from an auction. He would sell it back when it was time to return. He had offered a car to us instead several times but we could not afford to run one. This time we accepted and a whole new dimension to life opened up.
At Moel Famau North Wales. This is where Hugh let the brake off the car. Dad shot up the bank when he saw the car moving but Jem saved the day by getting on the floor of the car and pressing on the brake with all his might.

The way I remember it is that I was in the back of the car and Jem was pretending to drive. He accidentally took the handbrake off. When the carstarted to roll, I was helpless in the back and remember seeing Dad runninglike mad up a hill towards us. There where a lot of drops and steep slopes about. Jem put the handbrake back on after a short but exciting interval of mayhem!
