AAA westmorland

                         On Appleby 1977

Andy and Blue Smith's Westmorland Star


         This amazing trailer was number 212

         built in June 1975. Mr Smith ordered

         the beading on the roof, probably unique.

         As can be seen this trailer had a multitude

         of 'extras', eight grab handles on both

         back and front. The interior was 'marble'                                            

         formica with nine ceiling lights. It also had

         a specially made red enamel and very ornate

         stove. The fireplace was unique. Even the jack

         covers had flowers engraved in the stainless !!

         This was a very expensive trailer .

         Mr Smith had a red Bedford TK for towing.

         It must have been a striking turnout !!!

This is the first 'red' W.Star

I have seen, but Ive been told that 'young' Opie Price had a red one on the Hoggs Back in Surrey in 1974.




Old Black Mary Lee  had a new

one at Doncaster races in the

late 1970's..................................
